Darn, Now I need to sell my 17.7% panels and buy the new 18.5% panels!

There is no such thing as Too Much Power!

 While efficiency is always good, so far we have not seen any of all these
improvements bring prices down in the past 3 years or so. In fact, Kyocera
has raised prices on us about 6 times in the past 18 months.

But then, so have all other manufacturers - I think Sharp had about 15
increases, but we finally gave up on them.
