Why are your solar panels priced at more than double what they should otherwise be priced at

This question is from 1,000-Watt Expandable Monocrystalline PV Grid-Tied Solar Power Kit-DISCONTINUED

example: your 1000 watt kit (at $2800) includes the 4 enphase inverters and 4 250 panels: each pair cost about $750, when you subtract the cost of the inverter (apx 140) each panel is easily double what they should be priced at?

I like the idea of the convenience and free shipping to a local store but the cost doesn't make up for the difference. If you want my business for this product, you need to price them comparable to industry norms.

Answer: 
Greetings Todd!
I think your analysis of the pricing is a little off. Normally micro-inverters sell for $1/W or a little less.
While you can buy solar panels cheaper, they usually require shipping - which would put them @ more expensive that a trip to Home Depot.

Can I use this system as a backup battery to power essentials in a storm outage?

This question is from 1,000-Watt Expandable Monocrystalline PV Grid-Tied Solar Power Kit-DISCONTINUED
Asked by
Rosanne
Ashland, Virginia 23005
October 1, 2013
I would want to power the TV, frig, certain lights, and the ignition for the gas heat in case the electricity goes out. I have an electric/solar water heater, so I wouldn't need it to cover the hot water. I would also like the system to be tied into the electrical system at my home in good weather. I have a roof with no shade and a good angle. I think I have enough room for your 4 panels, 1,000 watt system, Model # GS-1000-KIT
Internet # 203080159. What else must I buy for a complete installation?

I'd have a surge protector before the computer regardless, but would the system, in ideal sunny situations, be able to handle it?

Answer: 
Desktop is about 180-250w plus monitor 24 inch max 100w with totaling 350w would be enough only when you use off grid with a battery backup system. I already explained differences. Grid system is not backup system it is to reduce you bill for electricity. Grid Tie Inverter cut off supply when gris is off due to anti-island safety.

Hi Alex,
Thank you for your interest in Grape Solar products.
Before I can answer your main question, it is important to understand that there are three main types of solar systems:
1. Grid-Tied - This is the most common type of residential system (the GS-1000-KIT is a Grid-tied system). These systems sell the electricity they make back to the utility for a credit on your electricity bill and do not operate when the grid is down.
2. Grid-Interactive - These systems are excellent for providing back-up power when the grid is down. They contain a battery bank that is charged by your solar system. Any excess electricity that you generate beyond what it takes to charge your batteries is sold back to the utility for a credit on your electricity bill. These systems will continue to charge your batteries when the grid is down and provide a certain amount of back-up power.
3. Off-Grid - These systems are completely separate from the grid and are most commonly found on RV's, Boats, Cabins, etc.
The 1000-watt kit is a grid-tie system and as such it would not power your computer directly. Instead, it is going to produce power that you sell back to the utility for credits on your utility bill and off-set the power that your computer system is using. It shouldn't have any problem producing enough power to completely off-set your computer system usage. Read Less

It is by installation capacity. You will be able to make at max condition 1000w only in perfect sunny day and when all equipment runs at 100% capacity. Which is not posible in practical condition.

1,000 Watts refers to the combined name plate value of the solar panels which is determined in a lab under standardized test conditions. The actual production of the system is going to vary based on geographic location, installation angle, azimuth and other site specific variables.
