Best deal you’ll never make.becsuse their FRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
They were designed to be used as roof tiles.\r\n\r\nThere were some improperly installed Mc 3 connectors beteeen modules that did not get snapped tight on 3 houses out of several hundred grid tied home systems.\r\n\r\nThere was excess heat created because of space that developed between the two MC 3 interconnects that weren’t snapped tight on three houses out of approx. 500. No homes were burnt down but there was need to call the fire department in st least one case.\r\n\r\nThe systems were all taken down and replaced. The deinstalled used modules are approximately 5 years old. We do not intend to clean them. We have photographs. There are no warranties.\r\n\r\nWe had a NABCEP SOLAR CERTIFIED mechanical engineer Lek Archaria out of our Phx. Office/warehouse and Solar engineer Louis Prophete go and inspect and test samples of the modules for output. \r\n\r\nIn the settlement comments it was stated that a “remedy” could be shell claps on top of the MC3 interconnects to create double secure interconnections and we are getting these sourced and will make them available.\r\n\r\nWhy aren’t we selling them? Because of legal concerns. \r\n\r\nI could not standby and allow these 50,000 modules to be destroyed, ripped apart , shredded and dumped into a pit. I spent many months working on this project to resurrect / save them. Our recycling program is not to destroy them as they still work as stated above but rather offer to recycle/reuse them into OFFGRID LOW VOLTAGE APPLICATIONS. These applications include water pumping, small to medium residential off grid homes, third world applications and such to greatly improve living conditions.\r\n\r\nWe are aggressively looking for people and NGO’s in Haiti, the D.R, MEX. and numerous countries in Africa where we have supplied solar and back up power systems for 30 years.\r\n\r\nHowever the off grid community in the USA that I have come to know and ❤️ love over the 43 years in solar are value added consumers (independent, self dependent, highly developed solar intelligent [unlike me], many built their own homes, retired engineer types, etc etc etc who know full well what I m doing and what they are doing).\r\n\r\nMore later. \r\nJk
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
We have just begun preparing safety guidelines and the history on the modules .\r\n\r\nBe patient!
These modules are approximately 5 years old. They are only 6 volts have MC 3 connectors. We tested samples and they produce rated power . More details available able . \r\n\r\nUse them only on off grid low voltage systems! Never use them on high voltage gridconnected systems! !Before you use them, test them. A few may have have been broken by the people carelessly deinstalling them (mainly walking on them). So take the good ones and draw a bead of silicone sealant around the edge of the glass to protect against moisture. Make sure they’re dry so you don’t trap moisture inside.
We have 50,000 free solar panels .\r\nApprox. 3,000 per 40 ft. container.\r\n34 watts ea. 6 volts ea. In CA.\r\nCall John at 305-710-9645.

In the meantime, I hope you will at least be able to get the basic idea of what I’m trying to say and do.
\nI’m trying to lower the price of PV so it will be lower than the cost of utility power. And,…. and this a really big “and”, I’m trying to do that…. (begin rocky theme song) … WITHOUT sucking money from every single taxpayer in America and the majority of its utility rate payers.\n\nI have to work like 20 hrs. A day to do this. Therfooooorrrrr…. I write alot of blogs approx. 836 so far, over half of them between the hours of 1:00 and 5:00 in the morning, My eyes look like a whale’s eyes, I need a new face, It’s just too much, and it takes alot of time, to proof. My blogs have to be incredibly long blogs too, because I’m a very big bag of wind and,…. its just no fun to proof at those hours. And, as everyone knows when your as emotionaly desperate as I am to be liked, to be one of those witty, clever, honest, guys, while at the same time saying something good about solar that’s honest, making jokes, telling it like it is i.e. “without the tax credits typical solar economics totally suck, just generally wasting time (yeah, you mean like now) it’s really hard.\n\nAt those hours, in my delirium, I invent new wurds (half word / half turd), I flip a coin to check my gamer and spelin and when I proof one sentence, I just keep writing 50 more words, it’s a nightmare in a nightmare. Then I’m so wound up, I begin my pre-sleep period from 4 to 5, where I can’t sleep for an hour , finally fall asleep at 6am and dream I’m in a cave in Nogales Mexico, where I’ve just been arrested, get released, then get lost on the Mexican side, lose my passport , get sepersted from my friends, then realize I don’t have any money, water or clothes on. Oh yeah and ive wandered into the absolute worst side of town.\n\n \n\nyou try i’t! Poofing is Hrd and it’s not un. Haha ha\n\nJohn
