Collection: Semi-Rigid Walk On Marine Solar Panels

See All Solar Panel Types, Dimensions, and Specifications Here.

With a strong aluminum backing and extra thick ETFE laminate non-skid surface, these panels can be walked on without fear of damaging the solar cells. These panels are ideal for mounting on boat decks, camper van roofs and docks. We use premium SunPower Maxeon A+ grade solar cells with an efficiency rating of up to 25.4%, the highest efficiency commercially available. (we offer the same panels with PERC or HJT cells, up to 24.1% efficient, see second chart below) There is no glass or aluminum frame making these panels are considerably lighter than our rigid panels and heavier and stiffer than our flexible panel series. They can be bent slightly to match up with an underlying surface, about 5%. The expected life of these panels is 10+ years in the harsh marine environment. The panels are available with a white or black backing. They are available in 60, 110,120, 150, 175, 225 and 330 watt power output. See below charts for details.

Note we have recently released a new "walkable light" panel that is about 3 mm thinner (4mm vs 7mm) with a thinner aluminum backing plate. They are not as robust - walkable but not dance or drive on. The upside is they dissipate heat better and thus perform better in hot climates.

    Customer Service and Product

    Very pleased with the performance of the rigid solar panels purchased in 2022. Customer service also has been consistently excellent both before the sale regarding product selection and after the sale regarding installation and maintenance concerns.

    Heavy Duty Panels For The Win

    Installed 1200watts of panels on my 56' commercial fishing boat in Kodiak Alaska, with salt spray and harsh winters I hardly run my genset. Installation was a breeze with using silicone to mount them. Most the boats in my family fleet have them now and we are all saving big on the fuel bill! Couldn't be happier with the purchace.

    Easy Install - Great Performance

    I worked with Tom last year to design a system for my sailboat; the dialog and information was very detailed and helpful in helping determine my system needs and completing the installation. Once ordering, the kit arrived in a timely manner and very complete. The install was very straightforward and Tom provided additional information as needed. After the install I took off on a 7 month cruise of British Columbia. The system worked perfectly during my trip. I’m very happy with the equipment and support from CMP and Tom. I highly recommend !
