On prices of solar panels...PANIC. NOW. Congress has just made some noises about a probable 30% tariff on Chinese solar cells and panels because of Chinese government subsidized dumping on their prices, so we can all expect to see the cheap Chinese panels go up fully 1/3 in price in the immediate future, once the tariff is applied or in anticipation of it.
Thanks for the heads-up on this!
