These are the best value in terms of price per watt. Lights, Phones, computer, are easy, T.V., good refrigerators, tools, are available in all but the worst conditions. With Lithium batteries you can occasionally run the big stuff like microwaves, coffee pots, induction cookstoves, hair driers, even small water heaters, the list goes on and on.

Why is this kit better than the smaller mail order solar kits?
Better price, better performance, better quality with easier installation. Bigger, UL rated industrial grade panels are much better and less expensive but are too big to ship economically. In order to combat this, mail order kits use multiple small, more expensive, low production, low power, lower quality panels, then mate them to a low cost, low performance PWM charge controller. This means lots of mounting holes in your roof and complicated, spaghetti noodled wires if you want real power. There are lots of disadvantages to mail order system in terms of power generated, line loss and complicated installation. Big panels and MPPT's are the only way to go, cheaper, easier and higher performing.
Local pickup in Portland Oregon is highly recommended. If you do need this kit shipped, it goes freight to your nearest dock. If you're on the west coast, shipping runs about $150-200, the further from Portland the more expensive. Call for quote.
