What is the difference between a Solar Panel Broker and Sunelec?

Basically speaking:

The majority of them don’t stock any products or have a warehouse.They have no shipping facility or packing and shipping experience.

They have no shipping facility or packing and shipping experience.

They don’t have a large comprehensive sales, design, shipping, and warehousing team. Some are just one or two people working at home.

Most don’t know how to engineer, design or size PV systems.

They don’t have much knowledge about B.O.S, mounting systems, inverters, etc, etc.

They don’t employ NABCEP certified Engineers.

They don’t do installations.

They haven’t been in the PV industry 45 years, since 1973.

They only have one office location.

They don’t have 13 warehouses to save tons of time and money for Domestic and International Shipping for their customers (which by the way, is totally out of control. Shipping rates have skyrocketed because of, get this? .. shipping brokers! They’re adding 25% to shipping costs and they do absolutely nothing to help anybody but themselves!)

They don’t offer much else, other than solar panels. They don’t carry extensive inventories of inverters, mounting racks, batteries, charge controllers, solar water heaters, water pumps, cable, wire, hardware, 12 volt appliances, refrigerators, lighting, Honda and Diesel generators, etc., etc. And they aren’t authorized distributors for the majority of major PV products, nor do they know much about any of them.

I don’t have anything against PV brokers; many are friends of mine. (Can’t say so much for shipping brokers, except for my friends Bruce and Gyro.) However, we will always tell people who, what, why, when where and how we do all the good stuff we do, as everyone in business should. It’s a dog eat dog world out there.

May the best solar team win. Let the competition continue. Break a leg, make it happen now! Feel the power, see the light, like crystal clear, cool, clean water drenching your body, ever lasting, life, your SUNPOWER OUR SUN ☀️ EVERYONE’S SUN FEELIN’ GOOD, FEELIN’ HAPPY TONIGHT!

THE WORLD is full of sunlight!

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
