Low Cost Solar Modules Rolling In

We have been running hard for 37 years to make solar energy real (without incentives). We have found out that refurbished Inverter Chargers from Trace, Heart Interface, and Xantrex are just as reliable and far cheaper than brand new ones. We have found out that lower grade cosmetically imperfect modules are just as good as Perfect Grade A type modules and we’ve gotten their cost down more than any technological breakthrough’s ever have in the last 15 years, we think.\n\nOn Solar Modules we went from the lowest priced name brand Grade A’s to remnant A’s to cosmetically blemished A’s to Grade B’s to Grade C’s to laminates all with 20 yr. or longer warranties. (We still sell Perfect A’s). In terms of cost we went from $5.00 per watt to $.98 per watt. Now we have found the end, we think. We found sources for thousands of laminates with our 20 yr. warranty that we can sell for $.75/watt and make a decent profit. They were headed for the recycling bin even though they are brand new laminates, someone wanted the silver content. The cells look nearly perfect and there are some back skin issues, some solder defects, some chipped cells, and some don’t have J-boxes, sounds like a typical C grade module (remember the primary difference between a B and a C is that the B’s have UL or TUV, CE certification and C’s don’t, because some cells are too close), so,  just use them on low voltage systems, they all have the same identical power output as A’s.\n\nSo the the light at the end of the tunnel is, the dumpster, or the value of the silver. That’s all you have to pay for and a little for SUN. Don’t count your chickens though before they hatch and unfortunately that’s what I’m doing right now. We don’t have them in our hands yet you see, but we know where they are, Christy, my daughter, went there and looked them over. A new very good friend of ours and a extremely knowledgeable electrical engineer did the same and it looks like it’s a go so it should happen very soon. We are doing our due diligence but it all looks good. Inventory, Specs and Price are being finalized. Sounds ominous but I think it’ll happen this week, maybe not though, you might beat us to them, There is a regular flow of them, however, not as many as we thought but we have other sources for other brands now. You can send us your money now if you trust us and reserve them. They will be on the web site soon. Or you can just wait till we go broke from having bought too much. This industry is really hard to gauge. I thought we could keep up. Apparently we already bit off more than we could chew. Looks another sale is coming up. At least our suppliers are lowering their prices on all grades including C’s.\n\nLast month a guy offered us a container that had been dropped during unloading and 100% of the laminates had been broken. We wanted to ask if we could have them for free, triple coat them with clear acrylic and plastic, and offer them for off grid at $.20/watt. Wow that’s another historic price breakthrough. Now sell them for $4.00 a watt and get 30% back $1.20 a watt from the …just kidding, but did you know there are almost no rules or regulations for the Fed. rebate. You can even install them yourself and write your own installation I guess as installation is included in the incentive. Just greedy evil little thoughts or typical normal everyday thoughts for petroleum industry executives, accountants and lobbyists. They’re not that bad, I’d do it too probably if I was them.\n\nWe’ve been experimenting with repairing our modules that UPS broke over the years we have about 140 we are testing,  they make 80% of their rated power. Should last 5 to 10+ years easy. As long as you keep painting them once in a while maybe longer so you don’t have any glass particles flying around.\n\nWe have 8 containers of some real deals we got from Suntech the worlds largest Mfr. coming in this week. Some of the more interesting are 395 watt modules. Suntech calls them some weird name like fiberboard anyway they sold them to us cheap, so we bought it. (See our Suntech list on the home page)  Besides these 8 containers we have 6 more containers of SUN modules coming in from Germany (SUN SV-200 watt modules).\n\nChristy came back from Europe with news that there are MW’s of Grade B and C modules available over there. Tony returned from China today having made new strong contacts there. China is in trouble they have way too many PV factories 3000. You can only sell so many Chinese PV modules to Ontario, Italy, Israel, and Germany . The Buy American requirement Obama is really pushing now isn’t helping them either. There are MW’s of Grade B and C modules in China too. It’s bad we have purchased too much. The deals we got on Canadian Solar and Suntech and Evergreen were incredible but now what do we do with all these laminates we have available to us. Anyone want a container (300 – 230 watt) of Grade C monocrystalline laminates for around $50,000 or $.69/watt?\n\nOh yeah and for those of you who are saying “oh man there they go again buying garbage”, screw you, this is great stuff, its all about lowering the cost of Solar Panels or basically “sliding glass doors that make electricity” and helping to save our environment especially for our kids and their kids. We back up everything we sell 100%. 37 years ago when I started my business in solar no one even sold photovoltaic modules only hot water heaters, we’re not going anywhere. I know what I’m doing. If you want too buy the world’s best Solar Panels (sliding glass doors) I have a dozen brands just look at our website.(Kyocera, Sharp, BP, Evergreen, DuPont, Suntech, Canadian Solar to name a few).\n\nAnd while I’m at it, screw the certification companies and all their solar panel certifications, we may have over done buying cheap solar it but so have they in forcing their will on the world. Solar panels don’t catch fire. They are like a bunch of guys running around with badges taking payoffs and scamming the public. UL certification for sliding glass doors, yeah right.\n\nWhen an unbroken solar panel sells for the value of its silver content, don’t be a fool, buy it. That’s less than $.25/watt I think. It’s the bottom of the barrel, the light at the end of the solar tunnel, the golden fleece, slightly dirty and used but it’s still gold, we believe.\n\njk

Why is it that most people seem to want Grade A solar modules

Why is it that most people seem to want Grade A solar modules installed by licensed contractors?\n\nGrade B and C modules are exactly the same but half the cost.\n\nThe licensed contractor is the guy who took a course and who signs the paperwork but the guys below, up and on the roof are most likely illegal aliens with high school diplomas.\n\n10 years ago before there were grid connected systems there were about 500,000 solar powered homes off the grid. Today there must be several million. A vast majority of them were done with cosmetically imperfect modules and were installed by do it yourselfers.

Panel Price Survey Coming Tomorrow

We are now blocked from Wholesale Solar’s and Solarhome.com’s web site. Affordable will probably be next. Anyway we have begun preparing our survey and will publish it tomorrow. It was compiled by electrical engineering students from the U.S., Japan, France and Pakistan.\n\nWe just wanted to mention that every single one of our solar panels as well as inverters are cheaper than Wholesale Solar’s, Affordable Solar’s and Solar Home’s, ( three most heavily advertised on the internet). we think. Click this blog or our home page tomorrow to click on it.

Just What are “SUN” Modules?

98% of Sun Modules have no UL, 100% have 20 Yr. Warranties. These modules are totally safe to use on low voltage systems, 48 volts or less. Any module used for grid connected systems should have UL.

There is some confusion over negative grounding on the SUN modules with back contact cells. On low voltage systems (48 volts or less) there is no problem using them. We have never had a single problem reported. They have received nothing but high praise for their output.

We have also noticed that some competitors say things like “We never sell B grade, blemished or other inferior modules”, this is too bad because they are spreading misinformation and confusing people. They should really be saying “we don’t sell grade B or blemished modules because we can’t get them! instead of scaring people into not buying some of the best deals in the market. I worked for Photowatt, Kyocera and Photocomm for 15 years. Companies like Alternative Energy Engineering, GE Solar, Real Goods, and Evergreen sell these modules. They are some of the oldest and most respected companies in the Solar Industry.

We sell A Grade Evergreen, Kyocera, REC, BP, Solar World and others, all with certification and the same 20 to 25 year warranty. Use these for all grid connected applications.

Living in the dark

Imagine living your entire life without electricity. It’s 2009 and there are still many places where that is still the case.\nTo the delight of the 85 families who make up the village of Ahire, Maharashtra they now have electricity for the very first time thanks to Solar Panels.

Green Jobs Now

\n\nClick here for the Youtube Link\nSun Electronics International Inc. in Miami, fl was a stop in Moveon.com Green Jobs Now Campaign. Their campaign was to provide more jobs that involves renewable energy to the city of Miami. John Kimball the owner of Sun Electronics was there as well to provide information on the expanding field of solar and renewable energy.\n\nwww.sunelec.com

The Silence Before The Storm

When DOE has the solar application for the incentives the demand for systems will boom.\n\nIn Fla. when the State started the $4.00 per watt rebate nothing happened for 6 months. The public did not understand it, the industry did not know how to apply for it and those writing requirements for qualifying were like one hand fighting with the other because the regulators were either understaffed and/or unfamiliar and underpaid. Expect this with the Federal plan. But… once they finally get it together the cost of solar modules will start to increase rapidly from their current historic low.\n\nIt will be similar to what happened to Germany and Spain where the approx. $.60 per Kwh feed in tariff created tens of thousands of jobs and thousands of new companies. It also made millionaires out of people overnight and made these two countries the largest for PV in the world overtaking the U.S.\n\nIf you want to see the approximate cost for a complete system see below. We are using $7.00 per watt as the average installed cost even though we sell them for around $6.50 per watt:\n
