Panels by cost per watt

Many stores that sell solar panels can have them filtered by the cost per watt. Theoretically this should tell you the best value. There are a few things you’ll want to factor in as well when buying solar panels.

Cost of shipping. Ive found that some stores give you a teaser price. I call it a teaser price because if you are only purchasing a couple panels you can easily end up paying just as much in shipping as the cost for the panels. One store that seams to have reasonable prices and fairly low shipping costs is www.affordable-solar.com. They are about inline with amazon as far as pricing, but when you take into account brand things change.

Brand. Lowest price doesn’t always mean the best value. Chooses brand with a good warranty and track record.
