SolarStik Marine

                                                                             Marine

Originally designed for the marine community, the Solar Stik™ allows for placement of 12V DC power generating equipment (wind & solar), GPS, radar, and more in a single location without monopolizing precious deck-space or cockpit canvas structures.

Free-standing design with a minimal installation “footprint”

The original concept behind the Solar Stik™ was to overcome the problems associated with large fixed mount solar systems on cruising vessels.

The result was a fully maneuverable solar panel array that can be aimed at the sun from morning until evening, regardless of the vessel’s orientation to the sun.

Three axes of panel movement

The unique construction of the Solar Stik™ provides three axes of movement to optimize the amount of direct sunlight exposure on its two 50 watt panels. With as little as two to three manual adjustments daily, you can increase the time of daily solar power generation “from dawn until dusk.” Maximum energy production is usually about 80 amp hours per day for a vessel from the solar panels alone, and if the Solar Stik™ Air-X Upgrade Kit is employed, energy production may average 125 amp hours or more.

Panels that operate all day, not just 4 hours

The Solar Stik™ is designed to handle harsh marine elements and has withstood rigorous testing on the open water for the last ten years. If you want the freedom to go where you want, WITHOUT having to plan for refueling locations, costs, and WITHOUT having to contend with generator noise and fumes, the Solar Stik™ is your total solution.

Solutions”

Mast Mounting accessories are available to support additional functions such as GPS or Radar installations

The Mast assembly is even strong enough to support a light-duty lifting crane for small dinghy motors, gear, or provisions.

Additionally, The Solar Stik™ assembles and breaks down very rapidly when conditions warrant. This is a key feature for sailors who have deck configurations that prohibit the installation of a traditional solar array, or who only need solar power while at anchor.

(Did you know that 90% of cruisers spend 90% of their time at anchor?)

Versatile”

The same Solar Stik™ that is on the back of a boat can also be used on land as a portable power generator for the home, RV, or even tailgating at a major sporting event! Several accessories are available for the Solar Stik™ to tailor it to use on land in nearly any application where a portable gasoline generator is used.

Durable”

The Solar Stik™ is robustly built to withstand the elements of the open ocean and has withstood rigorous blue-water testing for the last thirteen years. Constructed of aircraft-grade aluminum and stainless steel, it is available as a Deck Mount or Transom Mount system and installs to nearly any vessel’s stern. Installation can usually be performed in just 4-5 hours.

The total installed weight of the Marine Solar Stik™ System averages around 80 lbs.

The Solar Stik™ System is an internationally patented system and is made in the U.S.A. It is designed as a one-time purchase and has a 25 year power-output warranty, and a five-year “materials and workmanship” warranty.

The Solar Stik™ Marine System is sold as a complete package and includes mounting hardware and a Solar Boost™ 2000E digital MPPT charge control and temperature sensor. Additional charge control options are available as well upon request.

Additional mounting accessories are also available to help tailor the Solar Stik™ to a custom fit or application on nearly any vessel.

Freedom”

If you want the freedom to go where you want to, without having to plan for refueling locations, costs, and without having to deal with generator noise, fumes and maintenance, the Solar Stik™ is the ultimate solution…

Return to the dock because you want to, not because you have to.

Contact us for installation manuals, dimensional drawings, and more. The website was established as an information resource that will help you determine if a Solar Stik™ is right for your particular vessel.

The Technical Support Division is even available on weekends for those weekend project warriors.
