Consumer Solar Kit Gets Cheaper

image

Spotted in my local hardware supermarket today was a surprisingly cheap 12v solar kit.

The 15w solid panel was packaged with a regulator / converter that had various output voltages, two led lighting solutions and a 7ah 12v battery. The 220v inverter shown in the image was not included in the kit.

The price? A reasonable €149

While the build quality didn’t look that great, this would still be a good purchase for emergency use.

The price also indicates that some mass manufacturing is starting for the consumer market now. Certainly the Summer 2011 edition of a local electronics catalogue shows way more solutions and products than just a few years ago.

Have you seen more consumer solar equipment for sale this year?
