If you have room in your transport, bring your solar equipment with you. We found it's way too expensive in Spain compared to the UK. There is a company called Navitron who supply solar systems. Their website is:

They sometimes have offers on. For example, I bought the
sfa20-47hot water solar heater with integrated tank  including VAT at 17.5% and delivery in the UK (at £100) for less than £450 at one such time. The quality is good too. I would recommend them.

At the moment of writing, they have a solar hot water heating system with integrated tank, 24 tube (58mm diameter tubes) for just £450 plus vat (540 inc vat)  plus delivery. Normal Price is £695 plus vat plus delivery. The model number is sfd24-58 and it's in the 'sale' section (link on left of page).

I would recommend doing your home work on the photovoltic side of things. Many people are under the mistaken idea that you need inverters to jump the voltage up from 12 volts to 240 volts, but since you haven't got it set up yet, I would advise buying everything that runs on 12 volts, ie TV, DVD player, CD player, Radio, low energy lights etc.

The reason is that not only do you save by not having to buy  inverters, but you won't be subjecting your battreies to heavy loads and  draining your batteries all the time. You won't be able to run washing machines like this, but  thats what generators are for. Running one for an hour or so every now and then won't break the bank.

If you run gas lights such as those found in older caravans, they cost next to nothingto run and you can still buy the gas mantles on ebay easily.
