Where to buy Solar Panels ? Best Prices & Quality

A question that comes up every day in the "Living off the Grid" Facebook Group is where is the best place to buy Solar Panels ... so I'm going to start a list here on the Group blog and will update often. You can also include your preferred place to buy Solar panels in the Comments below and I will add to the list.


1. The Top place I see Recommended by Group Members so far is:
They list them by cost per watt ...
They have discounted Solar Panels you can buy by the palett (25) as low as .77 cents per watt.
So the more you buy the lower the price.  They currently have Free Freight February going on.

2. Home Depot will have sales on Solar panels that brings the cost down to $1 per watt and will offer Free Shipping. (Watch for Sales)

3. Renogy is often mentioned in the Group. I know that sells these and includes Free Shipping:   Renogy 100W Polycrystalline Photovoltaic $126 with Free Shipping (Watch for Sales)\

4. Fabtech has new and used panels for as low as .37 per watt.  300W+ Mono Solar Laminates from US manufacturer


1. Solacity  in Kemptville Ontario has a 260 watt solar panel for $202 CDN which works out to 77 cents CDN per watt or 54 cents US$ per watt  ...

2. where they have panels that are manufactured in Ontario and sell for $1 per watt (Shipping is $133.64 )

3. Many people starting out will also buy solar panels at Canadian Tire whenever there is a sale. Regular prices are very high.

Here is a Website that lists the Best Prices on Solar Panels:

Currently: Canadian Solar CS6X-320P is listed at the lowest Cost per panel at $0.51 per watt

  18. If you decided to go off-grid, you should build your own solar panels.
    You know that you can buy very cheap solar cells from the market (a dozen for a few bucks), so watch an online tutorial on how to build your PV solar panels and you save a pretty impressive amount of cash for you.
    In addition, if you build your own solar panel system, you will be able to provide a professional maintenance service for your system, because you were the person that built the system.
