LightLeaf Solar’s Structural Solar Panel (SSP) is a new and innovative type of solar panel that is perfect for powering marine, RV, automotive or aerospace vehicles.

Until now, adding solar power to anything beyond a roof has been quite challenging. Rigid glass solar panels are heavy, sharp, and awkward to install and use, and flexible panels are damage-prone and hard to install and maintain over the long-term. Traditionally, both of these are often tacked on top of an otherwise elegantly designed watercraft, RV, etc., which is less than ideal.


LightLeaf Solar’s SSP is a great solution to all of these traditional challenges. It is strong, rigid, lightweight, durable and molded to the required shape. These panels can be customized to almost any sizing and shaping requirements for optimal fit. Rather than being tacked on top, they are integrated with the structure, which adds beauty and strength, instead of subtracting esthetics and functionality.
