In Golden CO near me, there's an Institution of some note besides Coors Beer: NREL. They partnered, and commercialized, 'flexible' Solar Panels some years ago. Some are made as 3 Tab Shingles for the House. 'Life's a series of tradeoffs', as one of my fav sayings goes, and that's true in this case. The very-rugged technology of 'flexible' Panels has less wattage output/area than the 'hard' Panels you ask about. Both technologies of Solar 'Cells' are improving over time.
One upside to this type of Solar 'Cell' is that they blend into Suburban environments 'better' in the eyes of some. Indeed, I think it's 'Sharp' Company that used to mention a newer Solar Panel formulation that makes the color of their Solar Panels blend in more amongst conventional Roofs. On a side note, Sharp, for some time, had the highest Watts output/sq. ft. from their 'hard' Panels; an output improvement 'race' that continues today.
Power losses occur quickly over lengths of Wire runs, but you can read up and get comfortable with a distance 'value' of where to put your Collectors relative to your Rig if you want to get them out in the Sun at the end of large diameter Wire/Cable.
I don't have a reason to have researched this, but perhaps Insurance Companies will cover high-value, mobile Solar Panels for the usual Policy price increase increment.
