Solar Panel Prices will be going up!

Solar Panel Prices Expected to Rise in the US Due to New Tariffs on Chinese Panels

China Solar Projects Poised to Fuel Rebound in Panel Prices

Nice, at the cost of US jobs. Read the article. Other than perhaps US manufactures sounds like bad times ahead for solar installers and retailers.

And cost per watt is for manufacturing is 57-85 cents or so. So why does a 100 watt panel retail at $250?

We are waiting for the shoe to drop. Our solar supplier is already sourcing supplies and panels from places other than China, but there might be a delay in the supply chain and temporary shortages. Stay tuned!
