We should see the fourth bid today from a local contractor.
But, we are seeing some standouts in the cost/benefit idea. First, it looks like some Chinese solar panels are probably the best value per dollar. But, we can potentially buy ones made domestically for about $19.00 per panel more. That will probably end up being about $800.00 but we kind of feel it is probably worth it to buy domestic production.
On the inverter side, the Sunny Boy product line seems to be the most cost effective. We have a proposal that squeezes every watt of capability out of the SMA8000 unit. That product in made in Germany. I guess before we pull the trigger I need to review the domestic inverter companies, but I don’t think they will be competitive at this point.Mail this post
