Solar Panel Options For Your GEM

GEM with solar panels

For extended battery life, GEM customers can add a solar panel to their vehicle. Using solar panels adds power to the battery system, resulting in an increased drive time between charges.

Panels are Mono Crystalline Solar. They’re lightweight, non-glass, high efficiency, and hail and impact resistant.

GEM solar panels are designed and programmed to work with 48-volt battery systems, though they are not compatible with Lithium-Ion battery setups.

When factory installed, solar panels come with a two-year warranty.

Two different solar panels are available for GEM vehicles.

Note that a ladder rack (part number 2881663) is required to install a solar panel on an eL XD.

Never stack items on top of solar panels.

When cleaning your solar panels, GEM recommends using GEM Windshield Cleaner and Protectant to remove normal dust and dirt. A liquid household glass cleaner also can be used. To remove oil, grease or road tar, use isopropyl alchohol and then wash with water. Dry gently with a soft cloth or chamois.
