Why is this kit better than the smaller mail order solar kits?
Better performance, better efficiency, better quality with easier installation. Bigger, UL rated, top brand 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, highly variable 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 above 200 watts. There are lots of disadvantages to mail order system in terms of power generated, electrical line loss and complicated installation. Big panels and MPPT's are the only way to go, cheaper, easier and higher performing. Why install 3 or 4 small panels when you can get more power out of just one?
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.
