Good deal on made in USA solar panels.

7 - 8 years ago, solar panels were around $8 - $10 a watt.


Now you can get them for .88 cents a watt. On top of that, you can get the 30% federal tax credit as well as any incentives your state or local utility is offering on top of that.


Here's a link to see if your state has any incentives.

These look like good panels. Multi-crystalline which are some of the best and way better than that cheap film junk that wears out after a couple years. Even after 20 years, you should be getting around 90 - 95% of their original capacity.

Note: I've never used these panels personally nor have I ever dealt with this company.

I keep seeing more and more home owners installing solar panels on the roof. I've even though about it once or twice also. Maybe on my shed roof to power a pump on my pond.

Re: Good deal on made in USA solar panels.

We use solar at both our home and cabin. At our home we have gas wells which really limits how much electricity we need and we use propane in conjunction with solar for our cabin.


It's pretty sweet not having to call and argue with utility companies about how much they're raping you for.
