Opinions on MiaSole CIGS panels?
Good deal or not?
MiaSole model: MR-107. Someone locally is selling them, 111 Watts for $50. MiaSole went bellyup along with so many other green companies like Solyndra, so I suppose these are leftovers still in the box.
I read about some of the problems with them, such as higher mounting costs (they are frameless). Found a youtube video showing them being mounted in an angle-iron frame but it's not clear just how they are secured to the frame.
There was also something about they operate at too high a temperature. The specs say nominal operating temp 49C, which is 120F. For my location in Las Vegas, that might not be a bad thing except in winter.
