    Forget about the used market, Has anyone started importing from China
    yet? I've checked out a few web sites but don't know where to find
    them. I figure they'll start coming in about 2/3 of domestic when
    they start coming.

    Why is that ? China they can sell them for what the Market will bear , no ?

    They get more per panel in Germany and or Spain , don't have to loss money
    on the devalued dollar to boot.

    Face it panels cost what they cost (about 4.30 watt today's price) and
    nothing is happening to make this lower

    The US dollar will continue to decline relative to other currency's , other
    countries are increasing there demand and programs , the raw Silicon is in
    Shortage for the foreseeable future.

    Its not that Solar panels are expensive , it that we have become addicted to
    cheap energy. Solar won't come down in price, the other forms of energy will
    go up to show the true value in Solar , all of course is IHMO

    Solar panels are expensive because of the market experienced by the dealers.
    No product will survive with a pyrimid marketting scheme moving it. When the
    panels are sold third hand the price will drop to about half or maybe less.
    It is the foreign distributors, exporters,importers, importing agents,
    distributors, warehousers and dealers that consume most of the money.

    Can you say "exclusive rights"?

    I have been selling Suntech solar panels made in China and never had any
    issures or problems.
    Looking at a Suntech or BP or Kyocera solar panel side by side difficult to
    tell any difference.
    Biggest issue is getting stock as nearly every shipment in the larger sizes
    is sold out prior to arrival.

    Hi Solar Guppy,

    Just wanted to say that it's nice to hear, now and then, someone mention
    that "Its not that Solar panels are expensive , it that we have become
    addicted to cheap energy."

    It is so hard to get the message through!!

    Thanks for making my day a little bit brighter.

    "Cheap" and "expensive" are relative terms and only based on our
    comparisons.

    ...as are 'dumb' and 'dumber', but then I've only compared your posts against
    your posts.
