  • CE marked.

The charging efficiency of the solar panel will also be reduced if Solis is:

  • Not south facing.
  • Shaded.
  • Obstructions on glass e.g. rain, snow or dust.
  • Used through specialist glass (not recommended for glass with light transmittance of <55%.

If the window is equipped with a shutter or sun blind, this should be open during the day far enough to allow daylight to reach the solar panel. Not recommend for more than three operations a day over a prolonged period of time during the winter months (due to reduced solar power) and a maximum of five operations per day during other months.
