Have you ever imagined how much solar energy is in the Universe?

The Biggest Stars in the Universe

Have you ever taken the time to imagine just how amazing a star, like our own sun, really is? How much energy is produced from the sun day after day? With free energy that comes from a relentless ball of light, one comes to wonder why we struggle day in and day out to pay so much money every month for something we can get for free with the right utilities. With Solar Panels from Sun Electronics, you have more than you will ever need to sustain yourself for years to come. Check out this fascinating video that reveals how small we really are in comparison to how unbelievably huge the stars can be.

THIN FILM MOUNTING:

We have now found a great source for thin film mid and end clamps that will work with Unirac Rails.

These make the already attractive price of thin film systems even better. The mid and end clamps are only $1.50/each. These work perfectly with the Tianwei thin film modules that we are offering for $.34/watt. 
These are high quality clamps made by Schletter, a well known racking company based in Arizona.

For the DIY types, we have seen many options to mount the thin films at a low cost using 2×4′s, washers, and screws. These are ideal for any DIY type and can make the total system cost the lowest in the world.

TARIFF DECISIONS:

At Sun Electronics, we make it known that we couldn’t disagree more with the recent decisions to impose tariffs on Chinese and Taiwanese cells. This cripples any legitimate chance at making solar affordable to anyone living in the U.S. It affects all aspects of the industry, from trucking companies, to warehouses, solar installers, retailers, wholesalers, and anyone who wants to go solar without paying exorbitant rates. It is a shame that misinformed politicians and a German company dictates what people should pay for solar. I always use the analogy that if Volkswagen was struggling in U.S. Sales, they lobbied congress to put a large tariff on all Honda’s and Toyota’s, because they couldn’t compete with their price. That sounds great, let a foreign company decide what you should be paying for YOUR solar panels. The whole idea is ridiculous and would never fly in any other industry. Unlike other tariffs, there aren’t any legitimate arguments for, and many reasons against. It seems surreal that one foreign company with an aggressive lobbying strategy can impact an entire market the way they have. Solar was just starting to be cost effective in the U.S. WITHOUT tax credits and incentives, and with one tariff they killed any real chance the industry had at growing.

A wonderful excerpt from a recent article said it best:

“As a result of protectionist trade policies that raise prices and slow the deployment of solar power, we anticipate that significantly fewer people in the U.S. and globally will experience the long-term economic and environmental benefits of widespread solar adoption.”

SPECIAL NOTE FOR INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS:

Due to the tariffs on modules coming to the U.S., there are amazing deals for anyone who is buying modules for use outside of the U.S. We are able to get for our international customers high quality modules from Trina, Yingli, Tianwei, Suntech, and other major Chinese suppliers at low costs because of our long term relationship with these suppliers.

On top of this I predict Solar World will also go Bankrupt then what? Suniva will be left or will they, they have their own bag of worms to deal with. Word has it that they don’t make cells but simply apply a special coating to Chinese made wafers/cells and the assembly is done in China.

Then you have First Solar, they just lost the biggest projected project in the world in China.

China will no longer allow European inverters to be sold there.

What a mess. Incentives were used by both countries, the governments gave away billions to Factories and users so where’s the beef? What exactly is the problem?

Could it be Solar World the German  monopolistic PV manipulator and the DOC with their short sightedness as gov. biz bureaucrats of PV’s potential and importance at protecting the environment and pocketbooks and jobs of future Americans.
