Default Grape Solar 100w Panels at Home Depot, 32% OFF

Home Depot has the Grape Solar 100w panels (GS-Star-100w) on sale for $99 shipped, through the end of October.

https://homedepot.app.link/BAmTGx1z5G

Going to talk to Hein about getting a mounting setup for these panels. It's real close if two or three panels can fit if you have a rear MaxxAir fan installed.

Nope, with the MaxxAir only two of these panels will fit. Poop.

Not sure where you have your Maxxair mounted; I have three Renogy panels...

Yep, used mobile home elastomeric paint. Figured it would cut down on the heat during the summer; I have no real comparison, but the roof has ceiling has been not very hot so far for two separate months in the desert (Burning Man). It was about $30 a gallon, figured it was worth a shot. I didn't do any real prep before painting, just a wash. I applied too late in the day and so had some bubbles from overnight dew, but other than that, it's been good. I also brushed it on thick around the MaxxAir to keep leaks away.

It also looks really dirty on that pic... just noticed.

Are the Grape 100w panels decent? I am thinking about getting 2 or 3. I believe they have bypass diodes, which I guess is a good feature. I don't know much about solar panels......

They are thought to be one of the higher quality panel makers.

From what I have gathered, they are upper midline panels. The big deal is that they sell direct for DIY projects, unlike a company like Panasonic that only sells wholesale to installers.

Grape Solar has a monocrystalline, 180w, made in the USA, panel that is tempting. And two could be easily fitted with the rear MaxxAir installed.
