What make solar panels so expensive ?

solar panels cell


If you curious what make solar panels system becomes so expensive! here’s the reason why ! first of all, if we talk about solar panels system! there 4 parts to build good solar panels system! solar cells, charger controller, Inverter, and battery! most of this 3 parts, solar cells, inverter and charger controller have price about $100-$500 for each part! but if we talk about battery! the price would be different story! especially for battery that have big capacity such as, 1kw or 5 kilo wat!


Most of solar panels company would sell battery with high prices, such as $5000, to $25.000 so imagine if you have to spend $5000 just for battery! it mean to build the whole system, at least you will spend about $6000! but if you can find alternative solution and decrease for battery cost! then your solar panels system would less expensive! so the question is, is it possible to decrease battery price! and how to get cheap battery! is there anyway for this solution ? well, the answer actually are pretty simple! that is, if you have knowledge about battery reconditioning, and buy second use battery! for sure, you can get better price for battery and reduce battery cost!

So automatically, your panels system cost would be less expensive! 🙂 so the question is how we do that! well, for sure you have to learn more about battery! because at this moment! there is no cheap battery for the new one! most of company will give you price above $5000 average! for 5kw battery capacity, the price would be very high!


Here’s my suggestion! try to learn about how to reconditioning second use battery! and try to learn how to reconditioning old battery and how to make it like new one! if you have these kind of knowledge! then I am sure you can cut battery cost! because I am sure you can find second use battery in flea markets or same place! or even in the junkyard or what soever! buy them with dirt price! then fix that old, and reconditioning the battery! and that’s it! you can change expensive solar panels system, into cheap and affordable solar panels system!

and also to save more money try to learn  DIY solar panels installation! because labor cost are about 10% from total cost!

lowest cost per watt solar panels comparison

lowest cost per watt solar panels

The lowest cost per watt solar panels in 2017 are in California, price per watt are about $1,82! Brand Name Solarworld , Fronius USA, LLC. try to call them and ask the real price! the second place are  Massachusetts, $2.01!  Brand name LG, Solar Bridge! the 3rd place are in Arizona! Brand Name Central America.Inc Enphase Energy! the 4th and  10th places, you can see the image above!(if too small try to right click and view image)

As we already predicted, you can get lowest price not in all US state! and also not big company can give cheapest price! except LG though! but most of the company that can give lowest price are not to famous company! and also the size are not same! same only 5kw, but some company can give more than 5kw to 10kw system!  so basically you have to dig in their company information and make a call to them, and ask them does the price still, or already change! and also if you have large size, ask if them! if you can get better price! the only obstacle is if you in different states! does the price still cheap, or every state have different price! but my prediction is, if they branch, in your state! I am sure they can give same price for different states! what only matter is their company! which company and what branch! most of the time,  new company will make some promotion, or even give better price to compete with big boys!  so your jobs to get lowest is to find the company name or brand! and that’s it! you can save electricty bills for years to come! 😀

Basically bifacial solar panels works are to maximize solar panels cells to absorbs sunlight from any directions! because in that way it can increase solar cells effectivity to maximum! and with bifacial you don’t need to put solar panels cell into sunlight directions! since they already design to handle absorb from any direction!

Bifacial solar panels are good to use for people that have not many sunlight, or for some people that live place that location are not to often getting sunlight such as Alaska or maybe north pole! the point is, bifacial solar panels can do their jobs very well!

If you planning to buy bifacial solar panels, you can buy almost anywhere, ebay, amazon or what ever place! but of course the price would more expensive than regular solar cells! but do keep in mind, what make solar panels so effective sometime its not because the high prices, but sometimes its because of the situation! for example! if you live in Australia, actually you don’t need bifacial, you just need regular! but if you live in north pole! for sure, you will need this one! cause if not, you have to move solar panels to specific direction to get proper sunlight!
