Possibly pink, possibly jelly. But anyhoo.... Figure 6 hrs per day of realistic generating insolation, allow for panel derating so an 85 W panel is really 100W, that's still only 0.6 kWh/day, or barely enuf to run a very efficient dorm-sized fridge. Need two at least. Always glad to learn of new suppliers, esp. cut-price ones.

Except's web site sucks rocks. I can't even bring up models, specs, or prices. Get all kinds of security certificate warnings. Get buttons for Real Goods and dating services. But no solar info. Gods preserve us from HTML idjits.

BTW: anyone who finds killer PV deals online -- *get a hard quote on shipping.* You may find a nasty $400 surprise tagged onto your panels, independent of their weight or wattage.
