I could not tell you anything about it as there are no specs listed other than 60 watt which I seriously doubt because thin film flexible panels typically are around 5 to 9% efficient. So what that means is for each square meter of surface area one would expect about 50 to 90 watts max power

Other than that I say pass as it is a rip-off because he is wanting USD $6.76/watt. I can build you a whole grid tied system for your house for less money than that with a profit. Flexible panels should cost around $2 or less per watt.

Where in NTX are you referring too? RE is not popular in TX because energy prices are extremely low, no NET METERING LAWS, or state incentives except on the Left Coast Island of Austin TX. Most utilites in TX will only pay wholesale prices for excess, and many will not even allow a GTI sytsem to be connected.

Most of the equipment is through installers in NTX but there are a few suppliers in Dallas area.

As for DIY panels I strongly recommend you do not try to do this. As they will fail in a very short time and with prices in the collapsing market you can buy factory panels at less cost and they come with warranties. DIY panels cannot be used in any code compliant installations or qualify for FED tax credits. You will want UL or ETL listed panels...

I bought mine from simpleray.com. They have flat rate shipping of $149. They are out of state so you don't have sales tax. I am in Denton so they give me $3/AC Watt rebate. Working on my second batch of 5KW now
