Frequently Asked Questions
How Much Does It Cost A Factory To Make A Solar Panel?
Is It Really Necessary To Make Solar Panels That Expensive?
First Solar recently announced that their costs to produce panels dropped below $1 per watt. I don't know how much of that is accounting tricks. Of course, that doesn't mean that they would sell panels for that price - any capitalistic company is expected to drive the price up to what the market will bear.
Crystalline silicon panel producers are coming in at about $2.50/watt right now for the best of them. But again, the selling price is what the market will bear.

Solar Powered Hot Water Heat?
I Would Like To Power My Hot Water From Solar Power. I Have The Old Base Board Hot Water Heated Radiation Heat In My Home. How Can I Power 100% Of My Hot Water Heat Bill By Solar Power Alone? And What About Tax Credits?
you should not do this period. im a solar tech, and we get customers who want to do 100% solar and its just not feasible. the panels simply cant keep up with the boiler, and you must pump some serious heat into those pipes in your baseboards to feel the heat. your better off getting a high eff. boiler to replace the (kerosene one?) old boiler. if you want to go solar, and you have enough space for storage, get a 2 collector system for you domestic hot water(2 col. based on 3-4 people). we install these systems for about 8 grand. remember, one collector is good to heat 50 gal of water per day. think about it, dont waste your money.
