Re: Voyaging on $500 per month
Keep in mind that shopping by price alone has leaves out the better quality panels. I wouldn't buy a built to a price Chinese panel nor a controller from any except an established company like Genasun, Outback, Morningstar, or Blue Sky.
You do get what you pay for. I know people with good panels that are more than a decade ole from Kyocera, Siemens, Sharp and others that are still performing as designed. How many cheap panels will be doing that after 5 or 10 years.
