Solar recommendations

Thank you for the previous thread help, a buddy of mine who works on electronics is coming over this weekend and we are going to take a look at upgrading my solar panels. I have the 1996 era factory set up, and would like to upgrade. A pair of 200-250 watt (each) panels is what I would like, I believe that would be enough that the generator wouldn't have to come on unless I needed to run the AC Or microwave/tool.

Since its my home I'll buy qualiy, was just wanting to hear about good and bad experiences/brands.
Thank you.

YOU DON'T DRILL THE ROOF!

If you read their installation instructions, they (and I) use their proprietary mounting feet with 3M VHB tape ONLY!. When your roof surface is properly prepared, the tape will not budge once cured in place.

I have been using and installing these panels for 8 years and have never had one lift or move. NO HOLES!!!!!!
