Not a lot of current posts on solar according to my search. Did I miss the correct forum?
Costco has an array of 4 panels (60W) plus a frame, regulator and inverter for sale. Actually not "sale" - just their regular summer price of $270. This is about $100 more then a similar offer from Harbor Freight but most people have said not to bother with that one.

So how about Costco's offer - anyone use it? Is the regulator RF noisy?

Thank you and 73,
Paul

Are the panels amorphous or crystaline. I would never buy the amorphous because of the declining output over time.

If those 4 panel 60 watt systems were by SunForce, then Sam's Club was clearing them at $99 last week.  Was.  Hard to believe, but there were none of them left in the Palmdale Sams Club by the time I got there.  A discontinued item, according to the department head, so there will be no more.
