Solar Boulevard

Would anybody have any experience with a company by the name of Solar Boulevard and in particular the solar panels they sell branded Solar Cynergy.

They sell a 140 watt panel at a very reasonable price, just would like to know if they are of quality

Re: Solar Boulevard

I bought two Solar Cynergy panels from them back in 2008 for our Westerly. We don't own the boat anymore, so I cannot comment on how they have fared long-term. I will say the build quality then (maybe different now) was good, but not great. The frames were not quite as robust as those from Kyocera. Overall, I was pleased with the value.

Re: Solar Boulevard

I've bought several makes of panels from them. I have no reservation about them as a company and will continue to purchase from them. For the panels, SB seems to be dealing in whatever brand of Chinese, Korean, etc panels that brings the price down to attractive levels. They worked through the whole embargo thing intent on bringing the costs down. All the brands seem to be equal in build quality and SB is very good about customer support. They get well below $1/watt and I've yet to see any that I didn't think would hold up.

Re: Solar Boulevard

We purhased a 120 from them in 2008.
Back then it was $300.i
Last time I looked it was $175.
It's still working to spec on my boat's stern arch.

We also purchased our home's Enphase grid intertie from them.
