At approximately 0.80$us/watt it can be the frugal choice too. How much is a 100 watt panel these days ? I'm thinking probably more than 80$us. Of course you do have to buy bus wire, etc, to make the panel, but there are plenty of plans out there for how to construct your own solar panel if you have the time.
I like the idea of making panels because you can make them to fit unusual spaces, which is perfect on a boat. How many porthole shaped panels have you seen lately ?
