The world's first, highest quality, and most complete vehicle-specific hood-mounted solar panel system.

Go Further, Stay Longer.

The Cascadia 4x4 VSS System hard-mounts to the hood of your Land Rover Defender and, during daylight hours, provides a constant flow of clean solar energy to your primary or secondary vehicle batteries. This gives you the ability to run 12V accessories like fridges, phone/laptop chargers, lights, power inverters, etc. without the need to start your engine and without the fear of draining your battery and leaving you stranded. The VSS System Kit is completely plug-and-play and includes the MPPT Solar Charge Controller and can be installed in as little as 1.5 hours.

Durable & Lightweight

Cascadia leverages the most stable and durable multilayered semi-flexible solar panel construction available that is also LIGHTWEIGHT, ensuring the solar panels can withstand extreme environmental conditions, maintenance-free, for years while NOT adding a heavy load to your hood. There are lots of solar panels out there of very suspect quality or too heavy for hood application - this is NOT one of them.

The Cascadia 4x4 VSS System is currently in use in the Canadian mining industry.

The future of vehicle charging is here.

Included In Kit:

  • 75 Watt VSS Hood Solar Panel
  • Plug-n-Play MPPT Charge Controller
  • Custom-cut Vinyl Hood Base Sheet (protects the underlying vehicle hood paint from damage)
  • (1) Felt-edged squeegee applicator for automotive vinyl
  • (2) Packages 3M adhesion promoter
  • (5) Under-hood zip tie mounts
  • (10) Medium-size zip ties
  • Detailed installation instructions and user guide

Key Features:

  • 75 watts of clean solar energy from the hood of your Land Rover to keep your battery topped up when the engine isn't running. The solar panel is only 3mm thick, meaning vehicle aerodynamics are not affected and the weight of the system is negligible.
  • Perfect for Overlanding, camping, and the job site. Keep your drinks cold and equipment charged without killing your battery.
  • Rugged marine-grade solar panel construction to withstand extreme environmental conditions. The panel is made from 8 laminated layers consisting of a Dupont Tedlar backsheet and high-tech polymers allowing it to stand up to harsh environmental conditions like rain/snow/ice/mud/rocks/sticks etc. High durability makes this panel perfect for an off-road vehicle.
  • Included Plug-and-play MPPT Solar Charge Controller. This waterproof unit mounts in the engine bay and is highly resistant to heat and vibration. It automatically controls how much electricity reaches the battery and prevents overcharging. The charge controller has been pre-wired with fuses, terminals, and connectors to take out all of the guesswork in setting up the VSS System™.
  • Custom-cut Vinyl Base Sheet protects the underlying vehicle paint from damage.
  • Factory-like appearance. The VSS System follows the contours and edges of the Land Rover's hood perfectly giving it a seamless and sleek aesthetic.
  • Strips of 3M Neoprene Foam are added to the base of each panel. This high-density foam acts as a thermal barrier to protect your vehicle's paint from damage and also aid in solar panel cooling.
  • Final assembly and quality control completed at Canadian production facility to ensure that every VSS System functions perfectly. Cascadia 4x4 stands behind the quality of its products.
  • 2-year warranty.

Benefits:

  • Keep your Land Rover's battery topped up at all times: Perfect for the Overlander or camper who wants to power devices without worrying about draining their battery. Perfect on the job site for work lights and charging cordless tools.
  • Extend the life of your battery: The Cascadia 4x4 VSS System will give you longer overall battery life by tending it constantly during periods of sun exposure.
  • Emergency engine starting device: If you ever manage to completely drain your battery the VSS System will start the vehicle up again in as little as 30 minutes depending on sun exposure.
  • Anti-glare device: Due to its light-absorbing properties and "blackout" hood position, the solar panel creates a surface with very low reflectivity across the hood of the vehicle.

Specifications:

  • Power: 75W
  • Voc: 19.5V
  • Vmp: 16.5V
  • Isc: 5.0A
  • Imp: 4.6A

Mounting:

Each panel comes with a full perimeter of pre-installed high temperature 3M VHB tape. Each panel is pre-cleaned and prepped to make sure that the tape has a solid bond to the panel. This tape then mounts safely to your hood without damaging the paint.

The vinyl mounts onto the hood of your vehicle in the same way that traditional blackout hood vinyls or automotive vinyl stickers are applied. The vinyl acts as a moisture and debris barrier to protect the underlying paint.

Note: The VSS System takes 1.5 hrs to install and must be done in a dry environment between 18° and 35°C  (64° and 95°F).

Additional Tools Needed for Install:

  • Tape measure
  • Flat ruler
  • Spray bottle filled with rubbing alcohol
  • Spray bottle filled with soap water (1 part dish soap to 4 parts water; thoroughly mixed)
  • Heat gun
  • Several clean, dry rags
  • Several clean microfiber towels
  • Wire cutters
  • Masking tape
  • Nitrile or latex gloves
