Solara Solar Panels Review

Solara Solar Panels are one of the better quality solar panels available in the market.However they are quite expensive compared to the normal solar panels.They come at a high premium of around 3-10 pounds /watt compared to normal solar panels which are selling in the international market for $1.-1.3/watt.Though for specialist uses in marine conditions,the pricing premium is justified it seems too high for normal off grid systems where they provide not much extra benefit compared to their 3-4x times normal pricing.Solara Sells Solar Panels in 3 Series of S,K and M.Solara sells solar panels using both Thin Film Technology as well as normal Silicon Technology.They have semi flexible solar panels as well as rigid solar panels for marine,RV as well as home uses.Solara also sells a complete system kit with inverters,batteries,cabling and solar installation training instructions.
