Inexpensive Kyocera Solar Panels

I just got off the phone with Solar Boulevard. I ordered two 135 Watt Kyocera panels for $175.00 each. They said that they still have 15 or so left.

Re: Inexpensive Kyocera Solar Panels

I get the impression the German and Chinese manufacturers continue to churn out panels but the European markets has gone all wobbly as governments have second thoughts on expensive refund tariffs for those who generate there own electricity at home. Result lots of panels about so the price comes down. We have also just fitted a second solar panel because the price was good enough to tempt me.

Get those inexpensive panels while you can.
This may hint to the reason they are priced so low.

U.S. orders tariffs on Chinese solar panels

Re: Inexpensive Kyocera Solar Panels

I bought two. At $1.61/watt with shipping it's pretty hard to turn that bargain away.

Ditto. I think they may be sold out now, just got off the phone with them.

Thanks to the OP for the heads up!
