Hello All, ...

I'm Christopher and I'm collecting old solar pabels.

I'm looking for an ARCO, Photowatt and a GE solar panels.

If you are selling any, call or text me at 909-609-5437 or email me direct at [email protected]

Thanks everyone!

Christopher

    Christopher,

    Just out of curiosity (I do not have any used panels available--Not in business), why do you want them? Are you trying to match/repair older installations?

    Hi Bill, ...

    I own a home Improvement company in Upland CA and in one of my offices (Commercial Division) I have hung new and old solar panels on the wall and I thought would be real cool to hang a few from the past.

    I first start my renewable energy industry path back in 1993 when I started as an off-grid guru.

    Its would provide a great conversation piece with a potential customer.

    I like being unique if you will ... lol

    Christopher,

    Just to be clear--I do not have any of these panels (and I am not in the solar business). These are pictures our members have posted over the last few years.

    Take care,

    Roofing companies frequently remove old panels with new roof. They just want to get rid of them it seems.

    Wow ... that's a bummer because they can still be used.

    Thats how Denver solar companies get free panels. I'm often amazed and chagrined by how wasteful people are. A humble person could scratch a living by "dumpster diving". Last year I scored two red steel 5 gallon fuel containers that were being tossed. Those things cost $45 and last for decades with decent treatment. But who likes looking at trash? I was walking the dog. 

    Had a wealthy room mate who liked to toss my expensive triple chrome plated porcelain handled Mikasa silverware. He called me "petty" when I confronted him about it. Said they were "plastic". Shoot - sometimes I reuse plastic dinner ware. Though thriftiness can lead to excessive stuff - another problem in the eyes of most.
