Seeking 100 watt solar panel kit

I'm looking for a folding, 2 panel (for ease of storage and handling) 100 watt 12 volt solar kit (with controller). I'd appreciate comments on the real world performance from those that have such a set up, and where to find the best deal.
Thanks

There was recent posting on good deal on a folding set at Solar Blvd.

Any fair priced Canadian retailers for solar kits? Solarblvd does not ship up here. I'm my city, Edmonton. I've only seen rather pricey low watt panel kits. Not looking for huge a single 100w or dual 50w.

You might look at the ML Solar site, as I saw one one their site a couple of weeks ago. I don't know if they ship to Canada. Good luck with your project.

I wondered why Solarblvd was not answering my emails.

There are some 80w folding systems on eBay.

There is a company on Vancouver Island called www.windturbin.ca who actually do free shipping to the lower mainland so I suspect they will ship to you. Prices are pretty darn good by Canadian standards.


re the folding panels, cant tell you much about them as I have straight panels but I did notice one regular poster here who knows a fair bit about solar mentioned the folding panels would not performance wise be their first choose.

Having used google checkout too many times in the past I was careless and did not start an account with solarblvd. My apologies! I see now that I have signed up that I can have it shipped.

Go to Amazon dot com and do a search for folding solar panels. They have several but you need to pay careful attention to the customer reviews.

I recently got a set of the folding 120w panels from solarblvd. Looked like a pretty good deal for $190 delivered. Everything needed to "plug and play". I wanted the portable unit so I could use it with my van too.
