I'm near an area where there is a good bit of solar turnover (someone
buys a house with solar installed and doesn't want it - maybe the wife
thinks the panels are "ugly" - or someone discovers a year or two in
that the high end of the promised solar power doesn't happen all
year). The year or two old removed panels (typically 250W 960 cell]
or 300W [72 cell]) go for $.40 - $.60/watt (no shipping because I'm
close enough to drive my truck). Some of these are excellent panels -
I have a couple of 250W Jinko that actually deliver 235W in full sun
(that's 94% of rated wattage after any losses in the wiring or the
MPPT controller). I paid around $25-$50 each for those panels but
the measured output makes them a very good buy when new 100W panels
are in the $00-$40 range on Ebay.
