Re: Wind or Sun

I finally talked to a Sun Power rep. They ONLY sell through integrator electrical installers. They will send a "team" to inspect your application etc. Read that as they DO NOT sell panels. To utilize their stuff you must pay an integrator big bucks for the priviledge and the installation. That also means they will only service your problems in Tim-buc-to through appointment with one of these guys. In my business, we call that 'money left on the table'. Remember their big come-on add a while back with the totally solar powered mega-yacht? They are NOT interested in selling solar for boats. Try SANYO NIT thin film panels at about 18 % efficiency. these were the best available panels I could find.
