  • Where To Buy Suniva Panels

    I'm interested in Suniva panels for DIY. They are closer and I want to pick them up at store. How do I know if they sell single panels? I want two solid black monos . From what I see on their website they only do installation no single panels for DIY.

    Or just a good solid black mono will do,but all we've spoken with want hundreds of dollars in freight to send them.

      Yep, one of the headwinds to DIY solar is panels can't be shipped UPS and it gets real expensive to truck just a few of them.
      Find a local dealer who can buy in large quantity wholesale and sell you just a couple retail.
      And there is nothing special about Suniva - except being somewhat USA made.
      Look on your local craigslist for used panels. PV panels last almost forever and used ones are good way to go for small DIY projects.

        Thanks for your replies. We want black on black and yes it doesn't have to be Suniva but its hard to find black on black monos in America. We are old and don't want to take risk, just living is enough at our age. So want brand new panels.

        Not real puter savey either.

          Hi daryl, we only need from 400 to 600 watts, We are buying as we can, so far we have MidNite NMKID MPPT 30 amp charge controller , Cotek SK2000W Inverter , battery monitor' Trimetric TM 2030RV, Bogart En.

          PS we just bought the charge controller and inverter at Wholesale Solar, but the shipping is over $200 'estimate' to ship from Ca. to Fl. where we live for solar panels.

            You can get the 280 watt Suniva in black from Renvu for $84 each less than Wholesale Solar according to the list price on their web sites. That's nearly enough difference to cover the shipping if you can get them to ship just two panels.

              are you looking for American made or literally in America?

              The second is trivial.
              Canadian Solar make BoB, Trina make BoB, Suniva, Solarworld, etc. etc. etc.
              What you want to do is look for a local distributor near to you either for Allied or Soligent or one of the many other Solar distributors.

                Thanks Grickard, sounds too good to be true but I'll check it out. I looked and talked to so many who only want to sell the whole system. And thanks for the info.

                  Not really, just lookign for one more local and that is black and mono. I already have a battery place that is about 100 miles where we bought the trojans for solar but ended up on hubbys golf cart. So we know where to get the batteries,

                    Went to Canadian Solar, they only sell minimum of 4 bob panels. Have been checking out local places for past few days. Suniva wants to sell a pallet and gave Backwoods Solar phone number. Went to website seemed expensive.

                      You need to go to a distributor not a manufacturer. Canadian solar is a manufacturer. Soligent, allied, wholesale solar, etc are distributors.

                        Sunelec. is a large solar dealer in Fla. You might look them up online. They have some rock bottom pricing and might have what you need.

                            Been talking to them for awhile now and ironic he called me yesterday after you posted this. Sunelec seems like the place. Will let yall know soon as we decide for sure. I want to see the panel before I buy them. Trip to Gainesville is in the plan.
