As someone who paid $120 for my entire 100 watt system I had to bite my tongue. However, once again, if you had to pay an electrician to install and hook it up for you it could be in that ball park.

Bad control modules might explain why some suitcase kits were not doing well at the gathering. Of the four systems I checked three were 90W and one was 130W size. Aside from component specs the basic design was the same. The second panel could be unplugged at its connector. Open circuit voltage and short circuit current were measured. In all four cases the second panel was very healthy. Juice just wasn't getting from the controller output to the battery. On that side everything was hard wired. That panel could not be checked without invasive surgery. Hopefully others who had problems can get the same product support as P&C and be happy campers again.

Just talked with my parents in Yuma and they said 70's but still cooler at night. At least we don't have snow like most of the country. This has been the coldest year by far that I can remember down here. Just getting spoiled when I expect 70's and sunshine in February. LOL!

Thanks for nominal expectation setting. North of Yuma today it's windy but warm.
