This place seems to be a solar company. They also sell used panels

Makes me wonder, if you can get top of the line high power bifacial panels for $0.27/watt, why are we buying used panels from Santansolar for $0.10-0.25/watt? Much better to go new at these prices.

The only problem is that they're huge. The size of 2 panels.
 
Sorry, let me clarify. One of their subsidiaries sells solar panels. There's a lot of local adds for used panels for that location. I can't find the website right now
 
Just so you know, they are still making over 100% on the panels at that price. More like 200%. The manufacturers are selling below $.10/watt. If I was to venture based on their "in china" pricing, they probably are at $.05/watt in cost, and delivery to the US is only $5-6/panel, so $.01/watt, assuming they are bringing them over a container at a time.

Good to know, thanks. I guess I'll stick with my $0.10-0.20/watt used panels then
 
I believe those are so large they they can't really be delivered using a lift gate, needs to go to shipping terminal and then pickup from there or to commercial dock.
 
10.67kW Pallet - Hyundai 395W Bifacial Solar Panel ( Silver ) | Up to 470W with Bifacial Gain | HiS-S395GI | Full Pallet ( 27 ) - 10.67kW Total

These are a great deal and you can get them shipped. I wish these were around 2 years ago. I paid almost twice this amount.
The only problem with those Hyundai 395 is they bump up the voltage to nearly 50V, whereas the Hyundai 300W non bifacial are closer to 40V.

These look like a better fit still below 40V and they just bump up the amps to cover the increase in power:


Free shipping on 10 or more currently.

I thought just the same, but to my surprise liftgate service was indeed possible when delivering to a suburban residence.

That same seller on ebay has several different panel options. Indeed some good deals.

Ive been wanting to try some of these giants. If i lived nearby, id get a couple.

Santan has a good deal every now and then (like the new, not installed panels) but in my opinion their used panels are mostly garbage. Seems like buying broken windows to me.
 
Should pick up BiHiKu7N-MB-AG 655 at $175, or CS6W-540MB-AG at$150?

I'm purchasing more Victron 150/100 charge controllers and MNPV combiner boxes. The roof is completely flat, 30ft x 70ft and the panels will be mounted horizontally due to hurricanes here in Cabo San Lucas. I cannot justify more Silfab residential panels (420w at $235) even though they look nice.
 
I'm starting with 60 655's on this trip. He has raised prices since the tariff so just a heads up. My trailer is already in Santa Paula
 
How much are they now?
On eBay I'm seeing $225/panel but on Craigslist I'm seeing $250. I emailed today asking about a news article increasing tariff on Thailand and SE Asian countries. He (Brent) said that is why they raised prices!! I got lucky and paid $10,500 today (no sales tax) since I provided a Mexican address.
