John Kimball, President of Sun Electronics said that “most of the manufacturers, installers and re-sellers are selling their expensive panels by miss-informing people about so called ‘low-cost’
Fortunately for most Americans electricity costs per kilowatt hour are very low but because of this, without massive governmental financial incentives, the solar industry could not survive. This is far from the case in certain regions such as the Caribbean Islands, where utility costs have sky rocketed over the last 5 years and power outages are frequent. For 25 years Sun Electronics has serviced these regions and designed off-grid applications where solar electric systems are cost effective and do not need financial incentives.
Kimball, who has been in the solar industry for over 35 years, believes that solar power should be affordable and said “ low-cost solar panels offer poor, middle and upper class citizens a great opportunity to go solar and become legitimate, intelligent, energy independent homeowners. ” The way the market stands, solar is not cost-effective for everyone, but if you are paying 25 cents per kilowatt hour or more, then you stand to make great gains from having your own solar energy system. Purchasing lower grade modules will minimize your initial investment costs, enable you to have more powerful systems and still deliver long term reliable power for 30 to 40 years.
Despite the positive results that tens of thousands of customers have seen from “low-grade B” panels, a surplus of false information continues to circulate around, and many consumers are being misled into purchasing the more expensive solar panels at 25% to 40% higher cost that put out the same amount of energy.
