- Used solar Panels
- selling them for $160 Cad each
- Near Edmonton, Alberta,
- Seller is a truck driver and I don't think he knows much about Solar Panels.

Specs
-3%, +5% ~ Power Tolerance:
36.0 V ~ Vmpp (Rated Voltage)
8.1 A ~ Impp (Rated Current)
44.8 V ~ Voc (Open Circuit Voltage)
8.7 A ~ Isc (Short Circuit Current)
15 A ~ A (Series Fuse)
11 A ~ A (Bypass Diode)
600 V ~ Max System Voltage UL1703
1000 V ~ Max System Voltage IEC-61730
