Want Solar? Head to Sam's Club

Getting a solar system installed on your house is decidedly complicated. There is no centralized system, only contractors who you may or may not be able to cialis pfizer online trust. Prices for installation vary wildly, as do prices for the modules themselves.

{digg}{/digg}But in California, where things are getting a bit more consolidated and simplified, one retailer is buy tramadol online saturday delivery trying to make solar easy. And it's Wal-Mart. Or, Sam's Club in nine California stores: Corona, Murrieta, Glendora, Ontario, La Habra, Chino, Long Beach, Fountain Valley, and Torrance.

The solar kiosks will hook consumers up with established solar sellers and installers including Borrego Solar and BP Solar. The kiosks also offer $100 off every kilowatt of installed solar power. Honestly, that's not very much, considering a kilowatt of installed solar can cost up to $10,000, but Sam's Club members expect savings they will have!

Borrego, however, is intent on selling the future savings of the system. According to them, a $35k system will save homeowners $96k over the life of we like it cialis from india the panels. I'm not arguing with their data (at least in California) but that's a big pill to swallow for a lot of folks. But exposing people to the potential benefits of solar is apparently half the battle.

We imagine that Wal-Mart gets some commission on sales that come through the only today cheapest prices for levitra Sam's Club kiosks, but the image it gives them may be more important in the end. But if these things will make it simpler and more common for Californians to buy personal home solar systems, we certainly aren't going to complain.

That's awesome. Making solar available to everyone in a common place like Sam's Club is great. You don't have to go to some really expensive high end mechanical engineering company to buy a system. I wonder how they are going to handle the installation of these, as it's not trivial. It would be interesting to see a DIY kit.

To meet code, you need a certified electrician connecting the inverter to viagra paypal the grid.

I'm sure you can DIY. It's not that hard. But a place like Sam's Club wouldn't want the liability.
Goes Great With a Tesla Roadster

I wouldn't go with the economic motivation for solar...the savings just aren't there yet. But for those who want to make an ecological statement regardless of the cost, solar is the female cialis pills way to go. Get a solar panel to recharge your Tesla roadster and you can have a truly zero-emission vehicle!

That's great that solar is becoming readily available. Despite the high price point, which will keep the majority of consumers from purchasing the product, the ones who do only best offers generic cialis sale purchase are making a great investment for a healthier earth in the future.

Sams Club has been around for a long time and levitra 10 mg is very trusted.

It would be nice if they could do this elsewhere. definitely be helpful to the people that want o try this but don't really have a place to go for it in other states.
Fantastic News!

IKEA also has plans to start selling solar panels.

The price isn't a huge concern, it's gotta start somewhere and it's only going to drop.

Solar voltaic energry is not economicallly feasible at current prices. The cost of a system, that you install yourself, after tax rebates, costs enough that the cheap viagra order online 5% interest you lose by spending the money rather then investing it will never be recovered let alone any of buy branded levitra your investment. The cost of a self installed system, that produces 1KW, is about $6000. Do the math. Figure out how much electricity it would produce monthly, See how much that saves you and then compare it to what you would gain from investing your $6000 in a 5% CD. Where I live I could get $2500 in tax rebates but even the loss of income on we like it natural cialis pills a $3500 investment, at 5%, is not recovered by the original levitra electricity it would generate. A 1KW system would only save me about $11.20/month at current rates. When 225 watt solar panels cost under $100 solar will be feasible but not at $600-$800 for used and $1100 for new.
When will this happen in SC?

This is great news! I am full of admiration for Wal-Mart and Sam's Club - they seem to have their finger on the pulse of the clued-up customer. By promoting solar in their stores, they are creating a huge awareness and hopefully, a huge demand.

This is the only way we can bring down the exorbitant price of solar panels.

As always, California is 1st. When do you think this will trickle down to Sam's Clubs in SC?
Control power costs

With the cost of these solar systems being so high it is canadian healthcare cheaper to make a direct connection to the grid, thereby obtaining the cost benefit of unmetered power for just the price of strong alligator clips and rubber boots.
Great step

As the article states, Sam's Club won't doing any installation work or even selling system components to their customers. In essence, Sam's is just brokering the deal. I can't see any problem with this idea as qualified installers are doing the cialis professional 100 mg work for the going rate plus the homeowner will actually own the system unlike with some of the PPA companies out there.
Coming of how to buy levitra an age

I also just read in The Mother Earth News that Home Depot is also carrying small pv panels such that you could use to power a farm gate. They also do consultations on home systems. I think it is just a few years away for every one. Consumer demand will be the driving force.
economically feasible???

considering energy is going to be only more and more expensive as fossil fuels are phased out and just try! order viagra canada the dollar is becoming less and less of value you can keep your cds and bonds i think home energy production may be a much greater asset. and anyone working at a 5% return on an investment is in a losing battle with inflation right now.
Both Sam's Club and Ikea Need To Conside
written by EcoConnoissuer, August 23, 2008
My wife and I are using Envision’s flat-pack products, the LIfeTree™ and LIfeShade™ products on our PA property because:

-these are flat-pack options (solar in a box)
-they offer a nice backyard feature and provide shade without messing up your roof
-the price point is lower than almost any roof install ($15,500 for the LifeShade™ and $16,500 for the LIfeTree™)
-they use the latest technology micro-inverters so you don’t need equipment at your meter, it’s just an AC line that any electrician can connect
-the micro-inverters come with an online system that tracks the production of clean energy graphically (great education tool for the kids!)

Look carefully at the "solar calculator" on Borregos website! For example if you select $100/mo, x 12mo x 25 yr. you get $30,000, not $87,727 which they say as your cost. Obviously they are factoring some inflation of energy prices, but nowhere mention that, or what factor it is. The numbers are NOT so nice when you figure in the CURRENT savings at $30,000, vs. current cost of $26,900. I find most of these "calculators" end up with fluff, and the tree hugging promise of all the CO2 you're reducing, etc. While no doubt true, the economics are at this time more snake oil than reality.

Great Marketing

I think if more retailers are carrying solar it can only benefit the public. Educating family's about a better/cleaner technology to viagra rx power their home will only make it more likely for them to purchase solar in the future.
Not a new idea

REC Solar has been selling residential and commercial PV installs thorough COSTCO for over two years now. This is not a new idea.
