SolarWorld modules are going for $.70 if you buy a pallet, but of course the US Government just gave them a total monopoly on PV Modules since they are the last big factory left in America. And get this, it’s not even an American owned factory, it’s foreign owned!
Why are people who work for the governments and utilities always trying to manipulate the solar industry around. Because they the government guys? Bureaucrats, Departments, Agencies, Politicians, Lobbyists and even the President all want to feel powerful and in control of solar power and because they think they know what’s best for everyone else but them. And as for the the utilities, they can make more money by controlling every aspect of solar energy’s development, They can make even more money since solar is now the cheapest fuel of all at solar farm costs being only $.025/kWhr. even coal is more expensive which was the cheapest at $.07 per kWhr.
The days of $.34/W Chinese modules are gone, well at least for awhile, it will loosen up again but it may take too long for a lot of us little solar business guys and installers to survive. Like maybe 5 years.
Too bad for places like Puerto Rico and the other Caribbbean islands where people feel it won’t have power for many years. For some reason they dont trust the government’s predictions for getting the power system working again by May in Puerto Rico. I wonder why?
We had tens of thousands of Yingli, Upsolar and Ningbo 230 watt Modules we won in a 12MW auction just sitting in the Bahamas’s ready to help give hundreds of thousands of people at the World’s Lowest Prices per watt = $,24/W but couldn’t because the America’s President just signed a bill that does not allow any foreign made modules to enter into the country anymore or its territories. And if it comes from China, the old tariff and the new duty total will be 280%. We can only buy from US factories, but Guess What folks? Their all out of business!
I feel like buying a ship and smuggling electric power to millions of Puerto Ricans who are electrically staved, living in dilapidated houses, without running water, fresh food or sewage facilities !
Having the utilities owning the bulk of the solar farms guarantees them so much control over its cost to the consumers, that be you and me, the utilities will choose which companies get selected to build them, and how, when, where and what type of technologies will be used.
There’s clearly a conflict of interest!
Anyway we managed to snag what may be the last super deal from another PV factory auction company last week, 5,000 Beam Reach modules with built in mounting racks that are something very new and creative in the PV industry. There light weight , high efficiency, and even though they are meant to be placed on big box stores with rubber matted roofs, we bought them because the price was so incredibly low. Well we: Louis, Pierre, Lek, Roberto, Viviana, Fritz and Mr. Naranjo, we Figured since most of you are the last innovative , hard working, clever, skilled, energy engineering type guys left on Earth you could figure out a dozen options as to how they could be used, so we bought them for you and the companies with EPDM rubber mats. Their lighter weight enables 70% more of these commercial buildings to go solar.
Check out an excellent video presentation about how fast they can be installed with their built in frames by just googling

We have all the solar modules, inverters, batteries, racks, etc. that everybody else has, but at The World’s Lowest Solar Prices! If not just call me.
You’ll be real surprised when you visit our Warehouse Showroom and Offices in Miami. There ain’t nottin like it in the whole wide world!(786) 565-9359 it’s just like a Home Depot. It was a dream come true for me.
It’s my 45 th year in Solar and I’ll be around for a long long time because John Jr. will take over when I turn back into sundust.
If you read my blogs you probly think they’re a little crazy for sure. But who wants to just read an ad or a press release or listen to people arguing over MPPT’s, correct diode replacement or who makes the best mounting racks. Besides it’s fun for me. Here’s another joke:
