We are not looking for reviews of Sunelec here on the forum. Like any business, there will be happy and unhappy customers out there. None of us moderators here have any insight into solar retailing other than to understand that running a business is difficult work. And not every customer is "always right".
On average, from what I have read here over the years, Sunelec appears to have way more successful transactions than not. And, unfortunately, the unhappy transactions seem to gather the most attention.
You resold Sunelec panels?

Yep, $1.50 a watt delivered. I wish I had the money to buy a container load at that price. As soon as the tariffs kicks in if the trade embargo on China solar panels passes, Solar World, the only American company not loosing money on solar panel manufacturing will kick the market price up to around $2.50 a watt. PV installations will come to a screeching halt for the middle class without government incentives. My little endeavor will be 3 installs, and will get Wind-Sun some and others some American business.

Finally arrived, and in good condition. I'd ordered a full pallet on the 2nd day of the big sale, and had my card charged for product and shipping, long before either occurred. I'd say they had not planned for the flood of interest the sale stirred up.
Panels were very solidly packed, on a oversize pallet, with a 3/4" plywood on the bottom, and top, all strapped together, likely an evergreen factory job. But it was a hair-raising ride, waiting for them, as communication was scant, and in pidgin english.

IMHO, I think the current prices are not going to stick. There is a lots of production capacity and warhouses full of inventory but not enough buyers currently. Usually these types of supply/demand issue have a three year cycle. At some point enouhg supplier go out of business and the remaining ones raise their prices to cover their costs. I expect the new hihg FIT in Japan may drain some excess capacity but there is still a worldwide glut and cheap natural gas in the US is going to impact the really big projects that might drive up demand

I think the prices will last in fact I think they will get cheaper. $1 or less a watt is what is an average price now a days. I've seen them as low as 63 cents a watt, but that requires buying a palette, not just half a dozen.
