The difference between a grade A and grade B is nothing more than minute cosmetic imperfections. The rated power and lifetime is virtually the same. We have sold tens of thousands of grade B modules over than last 20 years and practically none of them have come back or has there been any unsatisfied customers. Sun Electronics will immediately refund any customers who is not satisfied with the power performance of any grade B modules.

B.O.S SALE

 

 


 

FROM JOHN’S BLOG
My upcoming book “A Homeowner’s Guide To Buying A Residential Photovoltaic System”, is a simple and effective way to save you thousands, if not tens of thousands of dollars when buying a PV System.
I know about people being ripped off in the solar industry, In 1980 while working for Az. Governor Bruce Babbitt’s Solar Energy Commission, I produced two books, one called Tapping the Sun and the other A Gide To Solar Water Heating for Home Builders.The first one was a guide to buying a solar water heating system for home owners. At that time, PV was virtually unheard of for homes. The industry was all about solar flat plate domestic water heating. You could get a combined tax credit of 70% of the cost or up to $5,000 on the cost of a residential system (40% Federal and 30% State).
Everything was going very well in the industry.

Then, some companies started increasing the customers’ invoices in exchange for putting a small sign with the seller’s name on it in their front yard. This was done so the homeowners would get a larger tax credit than they deserved, but they would really only pay the same amount for the system since they got a good size credit for the advertising that was buried in the invoice. The company paid almost nothing for the sign of course and the extra tax credit was shared between both the company and the customer.But the biggest problem was the industry taking advantage of uneducated and elderly home owners who did not know what they need to know before spending their hard earned cash, for example:

  1. The rules and regulations of the State and/or Federal tax credits as well as Utility incentives.
  2. How to determine the normal cost of an installation.
  3. How to compare performance, warranty, system sizing and economics, between system options.
  4. How long the components of system would last.
  5. How to calculate an accurate payback period or yearly savings on their electric bill.
  6. How Certifications could provide security and safety.
  7. When is the best time to buy.
  8. How to determine the Professional Qualifications of the designer, distributor, dealer or installer.
  9. How to apply for tax credits and other incentives.
I remember when I worked there, there was this little elderly lady in Sun City who’s gas bill for her water heater was $27.00 a month. She ended up buying a solar water heating system for $6,000 dollars.Some basic rules of thumb are the cost of an installation is about $1.00/Watt not including plans and permits.
If the system is grid-tied the cost of the modules will be approximately 80% of the cost of the system.If the system uses batteries like a totally independent off-grid or a hybrid system (grid tied with back-up power), the modules will be approximately 60% of the cost of the system.
Today the approximate top brand grade “A” crystalline module efficiency varies from 13% and 21%. A 12% to 16.5% module will cost approximately $.59 and $.74/Watt. A 17% to 18.5% module will cost approximately $.75 to $.95/Watt. A 19% to 21% module will cost $.96 to $1.25/watt or more.Today the approximate top brand grade “A” thin film module efficiency varies from 8% to approximately 14% depending on the type of thin film technology. Supply and Cost is difficult to obtain. Sun Electronics offers Avancis Grade “A” at $.47/Watt and Sharp grade B at $.30/Watt.
There are many ways to save money when you purchase a PV system. After 43 years in solar, I know for a fact the fastest and safest way to save money for a solar system is to contact Sun Electronics, my company for 27 years. I’ll just leave it at that for right now, if you are interested in talking to me my cell is below.
By the way, two of the quickest ways to lose money, are:1. Lease a system.
2. Not to get separate quotes for both the installation and the system. I will explain why in my next blog.
Adam (Electrical Engineeer PV Specialist) on sabbatical in the Congo sent us a comment via drums/water buffalo/telegraph/pigeon/canoe/camel/and snailboat saying: Hey I like the blogs. My favorite picture is you at the booth in Mexico. You look like you were entertaining like 10 Mexican people. Great photo.
Also how to not get ripped off on a solar system, don’t pay for premium panels. Nobody should ever be paying over $1.00/w for panels. A 20kw system with B grade poly modules will produce 2x the power at less than half the price of a 10kW Sunpower system. Sunpower will just take less surface area, only benefit.

PHOTOGRAPHS AND VIDEOS
Please send us photographs of your solar electric PV systems. We would like to post them on our website to show people who are interested in going solar.
HELP US PROTECT SUN’S EMAIL LIST
If you have been receiving unsolicited emails from our competitors please let us know.

WE BUY GRADE B PV MODULES

If any manufacturers, developers, operation and maintenance or EPC’s have excess PV modules we are very interested in buying this type of product for off-grid low voltage applications.

Thank you
