FREE PV Module News

If you have or know of an NGO: missionaries, charities, church groups, that help with humanitarian needs like orphanages, schools, hospitals, etc., call John Kimball 305-498-1863. Haiti, D.R., Caribbean, South America, Africa, and of course, North America.\r\n\r\nYou can also get packaged systems and BOS from us.\r\n\r\nWe’re a border town down here in Miami we will work for you on prices.\r\n\r\nA single pallet has over a hundred modules. We have hundreds of pallets but only a few containers. We can’t ship onsie, towsies it will kill us.\r\n\r\nThe free solar panels are sold as is.\r\nPlease be polite and be patient , shipping takes along time much longer than you think when you have 50,000 modules for free. So…he who hassles us for free modules gets kicked to the back of the line and it’s a long line. We don’t have time for that crap. \r\n\r\nIt will be very difficult and yes slower than you would like delivery. Get used to it, please, and understand if we hire more people, to handle logistics, to get shipments out,  to answer more phones, to handle more customers for this project and on and on , we lose money.\r\nWe lost a million dollars in the last two auction sales. It is extremely stressful on everyone to do this and almost impossible not to lose money.\r\n\r\nDon’t look a gift horse in the mouth. \r\n\r\nHaste makes waste.\r\n\r\nWe’re all hypocrites.\r\n\r\nLet he who has no sin, cast the first stone.\r\n\r\nAnd remember, they’re free give us a break. Don’t freak out and call the BBB or worst of all become one of those people who post and write bad reviews that last for your life time because John stuck his neck out to give modules away to help the people.\r\n\r\nThank you.\r\n\r\nJohn\r\n\r\n305-710-9645 cell: Call me if you have a problem or try to work with your sales man or girl, and for gosh sake get his name. That way if you call me with problem, I’ll be able to help you quicker.\r\n\r\nOh yeah we don’t have FREE inverters, yet, or free batteries, racking, charge controllers, or lunch. And, like everybody else, we will try to meet or beat any prices you get elsewhere.\r\n\r\nStay tuned to the blog.\r\n\r\nAnd darn it anyway send pictures of your installations. \r\n\r\nPictures are worth a thousand words. Nothing sells solar better than happy people who’ve gone solar.\r\n\r\nTK U\r\nJohn\r\n\r\n\r\nJK\r\n\r\nJohn

CLEAN ENERGY AND THE EARTH GO TOGETHER LIKE THE SUN AND THE WEATHER.

If you’re like me, you’re sick and tired of seeing the planet’s environment being destroyed. For awhile it seemed like there was one environmental disaster after another. \r\n\r\nYears ago, when someone wanted to get into the solar business, I used to say it’s a great idea, but, don’t quit your day job. Not anymore. Quit your darn day job and jump right in, just don’t try to manufacture your own solar panels at home, ha ha.\r\n\r\nI’ve never seen the likes of today’s renewable energy market.  “The industry is about to explode”, says Marty Spence, one of the most famous pro’s in the PV and Inverter industry. I met Marty at Trace, in 1989, one of the best inverter gene pools ever assembled in one place.\r\n\r\nIf you want to try to organize against environmental destruction like habitat for wildlife, wildlife, stop whaling, stop fishing with 7 mile nets, clear cutting, strip mining, pollution of our lakes, rivers and streams, air pollution, nuclear waste, nuclear plants built on coast lines or on faults, climate change, ocean warming, destruction of our coral reefs, and on and sadly on. Do something once in awhile to help or keep doing what you’re already doing like: selling, designing, installing solar or doing other renewable jobs, Volunteer to help by taking pictures of your installation or better yet a video and send it to Goggle Images or Youtube Videos. It’s true that a picture is worth a thousand words.\r\n\r\nThere are now 41,415 species on the IUCN Red List, and 16,306 of them are endangered species threatened with extinction. This is up from 16,118 last year. This includes both endangered animals and endangered plants.\r\n\r\nImage result for how many endangered species are there right now\r\n\r\nTK U\r\n\r\nJK\r\n\r\nP.S. I want to apologize for the foul language in my first draft of this piece, Monday. But nature like the amazing thing every human being is made up of and is existing in, is so, so, well just pick your own words to describe it.\r\n\r\nThere’s just something about nature that makes life worth living even more. When I look off my balcony on different days at all the different clouds formations during al types of fascinating weather changes, or I just see a flock of a dozen or so Pelican’s glide by effortlessly in perfect formation, or maybe their Ibis, or cool wild flocks of squawking Parrots, it just gives me that special feeling. When I see Manatees, Dolphins, Manta Rays, Tarpon or Sea Ospreys, or streamlined sailboats of all types sailing by with all sails out, I get charged, and so on and so on, with nature kits such an invigorating experience. Compared to all of Miami’s sleek colorful downtown skyscrapers, incredibly large and lit up at night,  humongous incredibly complex air liners flying overhead to and from all parts of the world, and the lights of South Beach, really, for me, pall in comparison.\r\n\r\nThere is so much to nature that is simple a mystery, like the human mind, the universe and all the theories, its relationship to you and your respectful religious beliefs. Nature, which includes us, needs to be protected. “The creator has but one demand peace and happiness for every man.”The creator has but one demand peace and happiness through all the land.” Unknown author.\r\n\r\nTK U\r\n\r\nJK

If you buy a reasonable dollar amount of BOS such as inverters, batteries, etc. I will lower the price of the modules located in Compton and Chicago to you. If you make me an offer I can’t refuse, I’ll accept it 9 out of 10 times.

I close on the sale of the old downtown Sun Electronics office tomorrow and will get $8,000,000 deposited into my account. So the chickens have come home to roost, so to speak, and in a good way. It’s a new beginning for us. More freedom to cut prices, increase volume, improve customer service, hire more sales people , get the latest phone technology, training, technical support, and increase public education.\r\n\r\nMost importantly will be lower prices for not just solar panels but also for all BOS, especially all inverters, mounting structures and battery storage. I like independent power systems. No more bills! \r\n\r\nThank you for your support this week is crucial for us for sales, I’d rather do a 1031 with the money from the property but if I have to I will blow it off, pay the $2,000,000 in taxes and pay the balance out of my earnings on the building. Obviously I don’t want to so help me help you and anyone else I can to go solar.\r\n\r\nAsk and you will receive. As mom always told me, “the squeaky wheel gets the grease”. You’ve me going. Besides you don’t need leverage now. I need cash this week! “The art of the deal”, Donald Trump. At least he knows how too make money, I think. You never know. Anyway I’m here and ready to wheel and deal and if you know me, I’m always on the side of my customer. Been that way since I started selling solar panels at Photowatt. What you throw out just comes back to you. Thank gosh I bought the bldg. downtown for 440k. otherwise I’d really be up a creek without a paddle.\r\n\r\nLike I said, just call me and I will “Make it so”, Captain Kirk – Stark Trek. So pick up your cell phone and call my cell phone 305-710-9645, or 786-449-2111.\r\n\r\n“I triple-dog-dare you!”, Flick, the kid who got his tongue stuck on the light pole in “Christmas Story””.  Note: The star of that movie, Ralphie, once sat next to me with his little brother on a plane flight from L.A. to Phoenix. I saw his parents sitting way in the back of the plane.  I thought “bad parents”. They immediately began terrorizing the passengers around us, kicking the seats, fighting, then laughing, and screaming. I tried to be one of them, carefully calming them down with wit. “Ah I did it”,  Wow Ralphie likes me he thinks I’m cool! For the next  30 min. they sat quietly, looking at me and smiling once in a while. He still looked like little Ralphie. When I got off the plane, I looked at what they had been drawing and they had drawn a big goofy picture of me with a 10 ft. long penis.\r\n\r\njk

Compare our prices on Top Tier One, Grade A Modules. I triple dog dare you!

We are constantly harassed by other solar distributors and and module brokers, they try to steal our mailing list, counterfeit our brand name Sun Electronics, Sunelec, SUN Modules and tell people that we just sell junk. When people tell them about Sun Electronics’ super low prices they say that “Sun Electronics sells cheap crap, like Grade B modules.” The same company uses constantly uses uses SUN ELECTRONICS and SUNELEC.COM as their own search term on Google in order to get their ad on place above our free ads on Goggle.

\r\n

In almost every case you will find they can’t beat our prices on a modules, BOS components or system kits. People who can’t put up should shut up and that goes especially for Wholesale Solar. Not only have they done all the above for years. They attack us using arguments that come right back to them. “We don’t sell Grade B (they most certainly do.) Once when I was at a Kyocera Distributors meeting, their owner stood up, and as he looked directly at Louis Prophete and I, asked the President of Kyocera Solar, “why don’t you do something about Sun Electronics for constantly offering the public the option to buy low quality and cost Grade B modules ? ”

\r\n

Needless to say, Louis and I were a little surprised, since I had worked for Kyocera since they entered the PV market in the USA, from 1984 to 1990. I worked very hard at Kyocera, I brought them their first big customers, Gene Hitney, David Katz, Sam Vanderhoof, Ron Kennedy, Peter Talmadge, Kona Solar, Condumex and Telephonos De Mexico. I led in sales for residential, telecomm and water pumping in the USA and Latin America year.

\r\n

I don’t like to toot my own horn, not, but nobody likes being put down, especially in public in front of their colleagues. If you want to criticize someone DON’T DO IT IN FRONT OF OTHERS! A wonderful girlfriend of mine, who gave me some of the best advice in my life, once told me, “what you throw out in life just comes back to you.”

\r\n

Warning: Get off my back and I’ll get off yours Wholesale Solar, if you want to compete try lowering your prices. And as for the company who feebly attempted to steal our client list, you are lucky you didn’t succeed. Our IT Manager was a NASA computer tech for 13 years and graduated from MIT and is President of Hack Miami who breaks into banks for Chase, provides information to the FBI and the US Armed Forces for Training our fighters for overseas. Oh and my Lawyer, he is the best Lawyer in Miami, so is my brother, Bob.

\r\n

I feel sorry for Wholesale Solar and the company who tried to steal my list anyone else who hurts or even tries to hurt Sun Electronics buy lying, stealing or otherwise. When I was younger I wanted revenge. But, somehow it just came to be unnecessary, as anyone who ever hurt us has paid dearly, and I never lifted a finger. It just happens.

\r\n

I’m a firm believer that, “God’s in Control.”  I keep my feet on the ground and my head up. I’m as honest as can be, a leveler. What I say is what I mean. In my youth I tried the other way, like many do in their teenage days, and it does not work. Honesty is the best policy.

\r\n

Everything we need is inside of us. That is what I truly believe. All the solar use, sales, profits, losses, successes and failures in life don’t matter. What matter’s, I believe, is whether you are at peace within yourself. And, if you are, you will be happy. It necessary, however, that you want to be happy

\r\n

So I will just say to anyone who is trying to save the world, its flora and fauna, and above all, its people from irreparable damage, pain and/or total destruction, don’t forget to love yourself or figure out a way to do that, because in the end it’s very important to finding satisfaction with your life (that was the whole meaning behind the Opera, “The Phantom of the Opera”, which I saw 5 times before I figured that out. It was in the song they played as they credits were rolling!

\r\n

In the end all these concepts in our minds, solarizing the power grid, being energy independent, money, jealousy, greed, envy, ego, even saving the world or being a successful thief, don’t matter. What matters is finding that place inside of your self that never changes, that will last forever, everlasting peace and happiness.

\r\n

So be it !

\r\n

Wouldn’t  it be great if the meaning of life was simply finding that truth in ourselves and that truth was happiness, just like the song “Happy” by Pharrel Williams.

Solar companies and efficiency.

There are a wide variety of solar companies from one guy and a phone to gigantic factories and project developers. They are all part of the greatest space endeavor ever, to jump to the sun for powering our fragile planet.

Frankly I like the one guy and a phone concept as it offers the best profit margin, rare in the business. Anyone can get into the industry it isnt rocket science. The most common approach is to just sell panels then inverters, batteries, charge controllers, MPPT’s and stop. Just make it available to buyers in specific areas with a small localized well maintained inventory.

I have yet to know of a factory that makes a profit, I guess they’re out there but no one seems to standout. Factories cost about $250,000,000 so the payback is quite a long time, I think. The best example of an efficient module assembly plant I ever saw was the Photowatt factory in Albuquerque. Bern Stewart hired a strikingly beautiful Mexican receptionist, an accountant, and he did everything else except for the crew that made the modules. That was it. Photowatt modules were held in high esteem and he was able to get away with charging $2.25/watt for a min. of a MW order. It was during “The Great Shortage of 2005.” Europe and the U.S. were going crazy outstripping the available supply. Even at this unbelievable price the delivery date or the end price wasn’t guaranteed !

We had a great year selling many megawatts of Photowatt and Kyocera Grade A modules as well as Grade B Schotts, Evergreen, BP and many other excellent brands of PV Modules. Back then we were making $1.00/watt profit. Nowadays people make a big sale of a MW and make $.01 or $.02 per watt. See I’m just following the crowd, not.

Anyway, everyone is noticing the bulge in the solar industry that is now occurring, New vendors are springing up everywhere in the U.S. and all of North and South America and there is no shortage of modules. The price is still dropping and in some places there is a shortage of installers.

Everyone wants a piece of the action and that’s good as long as no one gets ripped off.

That’s why I’m writing “A Homeowners Guide To Buying A Solar Electric & A Solar Water Heating System”. It’s great to have everyone jumping into solar but some people just don’t have a conscience.

jk

The Number Of Solar Panel Brokers And Dealers Is Growing Incredibly Fast, Too Fast. Sun will have to come up with some new marketing strategies.

Inventory and/or Delivery Time is King. Beware of companies that don’t have what they advertise. It’s tempting to advertise more than you can offer, I know, I’ve done it. You can understand, I got so mad at all of these PV companies, I decided, hell I’ll do it too. Yeah I just put up every logo I could find like a kid who puts decals all over his desk at home. It got old after awhile. “You can fool  some of the people all the time, but you can’t fool all the people all the time.” SUN is based on Honesty. Knowing the solar water heating  business grow the way I did, I knew that all I had to do to stand out from the competition in the PV business 27 years ago was to be honest. After all these years, I think we did just that.

Part of it is was all these companies just showing up out of the blue and lying about their available inventory to the n’th degree. It doesn’t take long to realize they don’t actually have any inventory, and in many cases now, they don’t even have a warehouse, a team, or  know anything, economics, types of systems, designing, sizing, picking out the rest of the system components, shipping, packing and handling.To them its a wire transfer and ZERO service, let alone installation and training seminars. And if you want to go see them, they don’t allow that. May of them are no more than a one man show operating out of a closet or its a small group of people located in the absolute middle of nowhere.

How will we compete with the competition in the future?  1. I doubt any of them will work till 3 am. Our whole team at SUN are devoted and passionate about Solar Energy Development Worldwide. And 2, We’re all as addicted to the solar business as one can be, I think. We’ve had a lot of difficult times. Competitors, suppliers and disgruntled employees have thrown everything they could at us over the many years, but we’re like the North Vietnamese, dug into caves in Miami, with rice paddies sprouting on our helmuts, popping up and down, dodging major problems and minor catastrophes due to our suppliers cutting us off without notice, then competing directly against us, hiring our employees, but no matter what it’s been, (and some of it’s been pretty bad, almost as bad as some of my blogs), we always bounce back. It makes us believe in the almighty. I think he likes the work we are doing.

Here are some new prices and modules we have coming for those of you who still read the blog.

455,000 MODULES NOW AVAILABLE FROM SUPPLIERS LOCATED ALL OVER CHINA, THE USA AND THE WORLD. FOR OFFSHORE USE ONLY (BECAUSE OF THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT’S PROTECTIONIST POLICIES AGAINST DUMPING – A GREAT IDEA BUT NOT FOR PV MODULES, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO SAVING OUR ENVIRONMENT.) Go to our website www.sunelec.com to see all the modules we have in our Miami, Phoenix, Jamaica and international warehouses.

THIS IS WHERE THE U.S. DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE HAS REALLLY SCREWED UP:  This is what America’s PV Industry is missing. You can get get any of these modules for 30-50% less than you what you would pay in the U.S.A. delivered for free to almost any major seaport in the world. And, No, these we don’t have in stock in the USA nor can we even sell them in the USA, why? because the Chinese Government provided more incentives than the U.S.A. Government, The DOC bureaucrats incorrectly called that dumping which ended up to be a good enough reason for the USA to restrict any further importation of them, for life. And now the USA Government’s incentive is to be ended on Jan. 1, 2016. Then what? We sit and wait for the DOC to wake up and change the policy, a policy that could create tons of jobs, help to protect the environment and create energy independence all over America like it would have done. China did nothing wrong, in fact they copied what we were doing, only better, providing financial help to their PV industry, especially their manufacturers but, with relatively no scandals like our Solyndra type robberies.

How do I manage to have the world’s lowest prices?

It’s not complicated but it is hard work. You also have to start early and finish first.

First of all you have to think cost effective. We can’t go on depending on the government, the taxpayers, to pay for everyone’s system. And, we certainly can’t count on the utiltiy companies to di it. You have to start from the bottom.

At least that’s what I do, and that’s what I did. Companies hate us because of our low than low prices. I understand that, solar energy is a powerful subject and a powerful product, generating a lot of emotion.

However, I know that until my utility bill is .40/kWhr or more. it won’t be cost effective (I’m not talking about all the other effective points about solar energy use) but just money.

First, I learned that solar panels last  40 to 50 years. The first solar panel ever made still works it’s in the Bell Lab museum . Panels hardly ever break and as long as the glass is intact they are worth their weight in gold to someone who has no power lines.

I learned this at Photowatt, the first photovoltaic factory in the United States. A French/American company. I was the first solar home specialist at Photowatt. My job was getting solar companies started to provide solar electric power to peoples off grid homes. the term was independent power, not renewable energy or , God forbid, grid tied PV systems. What a set up for conflict of interest or dependent power systems.

The trick is to buy modules that are less than perfect and perfect as well.d
