SolarTown Offers Solar Module Comparison

Thursday, October 14th, 2010

The choices for home solar panels are dizzying. If you are an installer or a DIYer, you may simply look at the price. And many of our customers are only interested in the bottom line: what is the lowest cost per watt? But there are some other critical specs that may affect your decision of which panel to purchase. We want to make your decision easier and are offering a new feature on SolarTown: Solar Module Comparison.

Ronald Reagan was once quoted as saying that, “A tree’s a tree.
