We currently operate using one single 260 watt solar panel to power our work but have room for several (if not many) more on our 8' x 35' roof.
Our solar setup would ideally consist of four total panels totaling 1kw (1040w) which would allow for peak charge in almost any type of weather during any season, even when the sun's angle of inclination is most severe in the winter months. With our current configuration, we can easily add these panels one by one.
There are plenty of solar panels available used and with funding we will pursue a local option on Craigslist and/or through a solar installer looking to liquidate panels which no longer meet the specs of federal/state incentives which is how we came across the panel we currently have.
Using exclusively alternative energy in our media work, as well as in our small-scale manufacturing, is a cornerstone of our mission. It is typical in the used market for solar to spend approximately $1 per watt of panel capacity which is the basis for this Community Wishlist item being $300 per unit.
