Cheap Solar Panels


Buyers often feel the need to look for cheap solar panels when the cash is limited in hand. But my friend there are various sources available from which you can get solar panels at a really cheap price or you will get them for free. We often forget to look for them where they are most likely to be found.


Here are some of the options which may kick start your search


  • The most obvious option is to look for any products listed on Amazon or eBay. Both websites are buzzing with such type of activity. You can simply find out a cheap solar panel from the comfort of your home.

    The drawback for this is you cannot check the physical condition of the solar panel itself, whether it is generating electricity or not. Buying from a trusted or a known seller will be a suitable option if you choose this route.


  • Another place which you need to stopover for getting Solar Panels at really cheap prices is the local secondhand market. Visiting a secondhand market can be a better option as you get to see the solar panel for yourself.

    You can verify the condition of the panel check if it generates voltage at its output, check for the continuity of the cell connections and based on that you can decide to buy a panel in particular. You may get a fairly good deal, saving hundreds or even thousands of your hard earned cash.


  • A place where you can find them is at a recycling company. That company’s scrap yard may be worth visiting. Who knows you might find a deal so great that you even get your solar panels for free. You will need to check out the scrap yard so that you can find the best solar panels which suit your needs.


A Gentle Reminder

Such types of solar panels have a drawback of lesser efficiency as they are pre used. Typically they are discarded because they generate less amount of power. Physical condition of the panels may not be the way you think it has to be. Special attention must be paid at the metal contacts, because without them the solar panels are useless.

Any physical damage, cracks or chips further add up to the reduced efficiency. These panels will not produce electricity compared to a brand new panel, but hey you can get it really cheap or if you are lucky you may even get solar panels for free. Sounds like a good option isn’t it!

Enjoy your search for cheap solar panels and if you find what you wanted, kindly share your story with others, just as an inspiration.
