    Just got round to discovering the make and model of the solar panel fitted to our newly aquired van, it's a Siemens SP70/SP75 at 70 or 75w.

    Have spent 10 minutes looking around the net and can't find a retailer of Siemens panels in the UK. I'm probably missing them but have to say there are loads in the USA but no obvious retail outlets either here or in Germany (surprised).

    Have they pulled out of the market or just selling into a different type of market? Have I missed the obvious?

    I want to double the capacity and would prefer to match the panels make for make, but not if I can't buy them I suppose.

    Thanks

    Don't know if that's the case but have read that Siemens make a quality panel and I'm all for quality if I can afford it.
