    A good place to buy solar panels is Signature Solar from what I hear, although I’ve never purchased any from them. Their prices seem reasonable and they carry an assortment of wattages / types. Next time I purchase panels, I’m extremely likely to go there. They are located here in Texas, only about a 3 hour drive for me to go pick them up and save the shipping cost.

    I have been very happy with my Renogy panels some are over ten years old and some are over five years old.

    I have to agree with Signature Solar in Texas. I buy a lot of materials from them for the systems I install. I would recommend them to anyone.

    Anyone have suggestions for where to buy Solar air collectors for heating?

    Yes I know I could string some tin cans together, but my wife will not except that as a solution.

    Sol-Ark is a great company. I believe they are in Texas, but they ship. They have provided systems to the Mission Field for a long time. They sell EMP hardened systems as well as panels, batteries, etc.

    For just a onesies or twosies panel system, I’ve bought the 200ish-watt “NewPowa” ones from Amazon. Considering they are less than a dollar a watt, including free delivery with Prime, not bad.

    For a larger system, I went to Santan Solar for used ones. Just have to know how much wattage you want, and your max volts for the charge controller, and then see what they have that you can get, hoping all are matching. I’ve paid as low as $60 for a 200+ watt panel (so about $30/watt), however, there is shipping, so it makes sense mostly when you can do a pallet or close to a pallet at a time.

    Remember, the larger and higher voltage panels can be quite a bit bigger, and being on a pallet you’ll need something with forklift-type forks to move (or maybe a trailer you can back up to the truck if they have a lift gate.

    If I rate the panels at 230W each below, x 20 = 4600W, cost $2000 delivered, that’s about $0.434/watt.

    Santan Solar sells Tested Used Panels, they are in Arizona. I have bought panels from Continuous Resources and Rich Solar and they were delivered with no issues.
