The Brand New Solar Power Tax Credit Is Here !
If you've been considering solar for your home or business, it's now time to celebrate !
After nearly a year of debates and nine previous attempts, On Friday October 3rd 2008 Congress finally approved a bill that not only extends the Federal 30% tax credit for solar but also removes the $2,000.00 cap that existed on the previous residential tax credit. The new Federal tax credit offers an incredible 30% with no cap for residential and commercial installations !
You've got to hurry though, rebates all over The U.S. Are dropping fast.
Now that the Federal Tax Credit has been extended and increased, the number of applications that are being submitted to the utilities in an attempt to beat the clock before the current rebates expire has reached record levels.
Don't make the same mistake that so many others have made. The Federal tax credit will be here for the next eight years and as long as you bring your system into service after January 1st 2009 then you'll qualify for the tax credit. Rebates however are limited and are based a first come first served basis so it is imperative that you submit your rebate application as soon as possible. Waiting even a single day to submit your rebate application can result in a reduced rebate or even the entire loss of your state's current rebate.
We're so sure that ours is the best product at the best price, that we'll beat any nationally advertised price on our same, in stock, top of the line solar system or your system is free.

The new laboratory test results are in and according to
compliant module list
that was posted on the California Energy Commission's
website on June 4th 2009
many solar panel models posted a reduction in their
PTC power ratings.
Per the new SB1 guidelines compliant module list our Mitsubishi PV-UD185MF5 185 Watt solar panel actually has a higher per Watt PTC rating than all of the following solar panels:
The Sharpâ 187 through 230 Watt panels.
The BPâ BP3210N and BP3220N solar panels.
The SolarWorldâ 165 and 175 solar panels.

Only The Finest Available Products
Ask any alternative energy engineer, installer or dealer and they'll all tell you the same thing. With more than 750,000 Sunny Boy inverters sold and operating worldwide "The Sunny Boy SB7000US' proven technology makes this unit one of the best grid intertie inverters available on today's market." Like a fine German crafted sports car, the SB7000US is engineered and built in Germany, the hotbed of the worlds finest renewable energy technology. We've taken SB7000US' unbeatable German craftsmanship and reliability a step further by adding the very finest made solar panels available.
When it comes to purchasing a solar system for your home or business it is crucial that you take a very close look at the solar panels that the dealer is offering you. After all, solar panels are the workhorse of any solar system. Far too many consumers simply purchase what ever it is that a dealer happens to have available without even looking at a specification sheet. Performance that is lacking by just a few percentage points or an inferior warranty can make all the difference in the world over the expected life of a solar panel.
With more than ten years of experience operating our own state of the art, in-house solar repair center, we know what technologies perform well in the the real world and what technologies do not.
Over the years, we've seen expensive, name brand, solar panels fail only after a few months worth of use. We've even seen popular U.S. made solar panels fail soon after the manufacturer closed its doors leaving its customers with no warranty.
This is why it is crucial that you choose a solar panel manufacturer that is well established in the industry and has the financial strength to be there if the need arises. This is exactly why we chose Mitsubishi Electric for our Diamond series solar systems.
Anyone can build a solar panel that works here on Earth, now strap that same solar panel to a rocket that subjects it to 8 Gs of bone jarring thrust and then expose it to high energy cosmic rays as well as temperatures that can soar as high as 300oC and now you have engineered a solar panel. That's exactly the type of expertise that has been perfected by Mitsubishi Electric engineers that began when they established their space satellite business more than 30 years ago.
on that experience and utilizing the latest state of the art patented
process for manufacturing multi-crystalline silicon, Mitsubishi Electric
has achieved real world efficiencies, tolerance levels
and reliability that was once thought to be impossible. And unlike other manufacturers they did it without using toxic lead in their panels.
Mitsubishi Electric is one of the oldest and most trusted names in the industry.
Finally we top off our systems with the best price that you'll find anywhere. In fact, we're so sure that ours is the best deal available, that we'll beat any nationally advertised price on our same, in stock, top of the line systems or your system is free.
Unlike other dealers that will sell you a barebones system, our premium quality kits include everything you see listed above.
This System uses solar panels that have been manufactured with solar cells that have been cut from solid ingots of silicon.
shopping for solar panels, always insist on
solar panels that use solar cells that have
been cut from a solid silicon ingot.
Many of the solar panels that are on the market that use silicon that is not cut from solid silicon ingots may offer lower efficiencies, poorer tolerances or lesser warranties.
The new lab results that are required by the California Energy Commission are out and you can see for yourself how much more rebate and PTC rated power you get when you compare the Mitsubishi® PV-UD185MF5 to the Sharp® ND-224UC1.
Over the life of this Mitsubishi system, that will mean a lot more money in your pocket !

When it comes to performance, reliability and value, nothing beats Mitsubishi Electric.
We only uses heavy duty German made inverters with 60 Hertz based, copper wound output transformers for high efficiency and unbeatable durability and performance.
Copper is expensive but its time tested performance in inverters is undeniable.
Since the year 2000 our founder has owned and operated one of the largest most experienced factory authorized inverter repair centers in the nation and we know the value of using a heavy duty 60 Hertz based output transformer.
Because of our in depth knowledge concerning the design, construction and repair of inverters, we simply will not use HF (high frequency) inverters in our systems.
Before making a buying decision, better ask how much the other dealer's inverter weighs, then ask to see the inverter's specification sheet to be sure.
Many of our competitors use inverters with lower cost, HF (high frequency) output transformers.
Compare the Sunny Boy SB7000US inverter that we offer with the Froniusâ IG Plus 7.5â that the other dealers offer:
Froniusâ IG Plus 7.5
SMA America SB7000US
CEC Weighted Efficiency/Maximum Efficiency
What more can we say, If you want a lower efficiency, lighter weight inverter that's going to give you a smaller per PTC watt rebate then those other dealers have exactly what your looking for.
Electric Brings Its Expertise In The Space Industry Down To Earth
With more than 30 years experience in the space industry, Mitsubishi Electric has consistently demonstrated the reliability of its products in the realm of outer space by standing up to exposure to high energy cosmic rays as well as temperatures that can soar as high as 300oC.
The shear severity of the environment in space defies any comparison with conditions on here on Earth.

Here's Why This Solar System Blows The Competition's Solar System Out Of The Water.
1. Mitsubishi Solar panels are known the world over for their superior quality and performance and have one of the best per Watt PTC ratings for any mono or poly solar panel on the US market.
2. You'll get a bigger per Watt rebate in many states when comparing the Mitsubishi Solar panels used in this system to many other solar panel in it's class on the market.
3. Mitsubishi Solar Panels use solar cells that are cut from a solid ingot of silicon which provide higher efficiency. Many of our competitors use less expensive, lower efficiency thin film solar panels or solar panels with cells that are not cut from a solid ingot of silicon. Mitsubishi Solar panels come with a 25 year manufacturer's warranty backed by one of the biggest names in the industry. You won't find any of the 20 year warranty solar panels that the other wholesale solar electric dealers are selling here.
4. If your dealer is trying to convince you to buy thin film solar panels and he's trying to convince you that his panels offer high efficiency, keep this mind; Given the current state of the technology, using the word thin film and the words high efficiency in the same sentence is an oxymoron or a contradiction of terms.. Silicon based thin film products are among the lowest efficiency products on the market when compared to mono-crystalline or even poly-crystalline solar panels.
5. The top of the line Sunny Boy inverter used in this system is engineered and manufactured in Germany and has a 96% efficiency for a bigger rebate in many states. You won't find the lightweight, Taiwanese made inverters that the other wholesale solar dealers are selling here.
6. The top of the line Sunny Boy inverter used in this system uses a heavy duty, 60 hz based, copper wound output transformer. Many of the inverters offered by the other dealers are manufactured in third world countries and use lower cost high frequency transformers. The manufacturer of the Sunny Boy line of inverters SMA America, has an installed base of more than 750,000 inverters.
7. The mounting racks that are included in this system are true heavier duty rated U.S. made Unirac mounting racks, not the lower cost, light duty mounting racks that require more holes to be drilled in your roof that are offered by many of our competitors.
