The Longest Warranty In The Industry

The solar panels that are used in these Puerto Rico Solar systems come with a 25 year factory warranty. The inverters come with a 10 year factory warranty. The longest warranties in the industry !


Before You Buy !

Click here to learn ten buying tips to use when shopping for a solar system.


Puerto Rico Solar only uses solar panels that have been manufactured with solar cells that have been cut from solid ingots of silicon.

When shopping for solar panels, always insist on solar panels that use solar cells that have been cut from a solid silicon ingot.

Many of the solar panels that are on the market that use solar cells that are not cut from solid silicon ingots may offer lower efficiencies, poorer tolerances or lesser warranties.

No thin film, ribbons, bows or strings attached.

Click Here To Learn The Eight Specifications That You Absolutely Must Compare When Shopping For A Solar System.


Simply Better Components

In an effort to be more competitive, many dealers have resorted to offering thin light duty mounting rails that require many more roof penetrations, lower cost, lightweight inverters with high frequency transformers instead of a heavy duty 60 Hertz output transformer, solar panels with poorer per Watt PTC ratings and lesser warranties and or solar panels that use cells that are not cut from a solid ingot of silicon.
 
Here at Puerto Rico Solar we never skimp on quality. Every system that we sell includes only the very best heavy duty components available on today's market.
 
And that's not just talk. In a side by side comparison we'll prove why our name brand top of the line equipment outperforms the competition hands down at a price that can't be beat.


Weight Matters

Puerto Rico Solar only uses heavy duty inverters with 60 Hertz based, copper wound output transformers for high efficiency and unbeatable durability and performance.

Copper is expensive but its time tested performance in inverters is undeniable.

Since the year 2000 We've owned and operated one of the largest most experienced factory authorized  inverter repair centers in the nation and we know the value of using a heavy duty 60 Hertz based output transformer.

 Because of our in depth knowledge concerning the design, construction and repair of inverters, we simply will not use HF (high frequency) inverters in our systems.

Before making a buying decision, better ask how much the other dealer's inverter weighs, then ask to see the inverter's specification sheet to be sure.

Many of our competitors use inverters with lower cost, HF (high frequency) output transformers.


Strong I Beam Mounting Rails

I beams have a long proven history in the construction industry. The I beam's efficient load bearing design lends itself perfectly for securing your investment into solar onto your roof's surface.

Great News ! For An Extremely Limited Time We Will Upgrade The U.S. Made Unirac Clicksys Mount System In This Kit To The Even Higher Strength U.S. Made, Unirac Standard SolarMount Mounting System At No Additional Cost. Offer Ends Soon.


Low Cost C Shaped Rails Without A Factory Warranty Are Not Allowed In Any Of Our Systems.

The C shaped rail that many other dealers offer provides a flimsier design and don't even come with a factory warranty. To prove our point ask your dealer to provide a sample of their U shaped mounting rail. Lay the sample on its side and simply stand on it.

Note what happens to this rail. Next try the same thing with a ClickSys I beam rail from Unirac and you'll know right away which design offers you more piece of mind.

 Because many C shaped rails use far less aluminum, the result is a flimsier design which will require many more holes drilled into your roof to provide the rigidity that is necessary to support the solar panels. Drilling more holes into your roof can increase labor costs as well as increase the risk of a leak.

Also Unirac SolarMount's taller rail provides more air flow for increased cooling. Solar electric panels work off of light not heat. Heat is a solar panel's worst enemy, the cooler a solar panels is, the more power it will produce.

Always ask your dealer to show you a sample of the mounting rails the he's going to use on your roof. ******

Important: If you've been provided with a quote with no mention of the brand or model number of the mounting system that your dealer is using, then the dealer is probably trying to sell you the cheapest available racks on the market. This is a common practice amongst less reputable  dealers. Always demand to see a full list of material including brands and models and ALWAYS ask for a copy of the mounting system's factory warranty.

Here's A Shopping Tip

Just because a company makes  a great TV or other household appliance doesn't necessarily mean that they make a great solar panel. Some of the poorest performing solar panels are made by some of the biggest names in the industry.

We'll provide you with all of the resources that you would ever need, including specification sheets from our competitors offerings, so that you can make your own educated decision about solar panel performance and compare for yourself. After all, solar panels have the potential to last 30 years or more, so even minor differences in performance can make a big difference in the long run.

The Brand New Solar Power Tax Credit Is Here !

If you've been considering solar for your home or business, it's now time to celebrate ! After nearly a year of debates and nine previous attempts, On Friday October 3rd 2008 Congress finally approved a bill that not only extends the Federal 30% tax credit for solar but also removes the $2,000.00 cap that existed on the previous residential tax credit. That's an incredible 30% with no cap for residential and commercial installations !



We're so sure that ours is the best product at the best price, that we'll beat any nationally advertised price on our same, in stock, top of the line solar system or your system is free.

In addition there's even a cash rebate of up to $4,000.00 per DC kilowatt for residential and commercial installations and $8,000.00 per DC kilowatt for government installations with a maximum of $15,000.00 or 50% or whichever is less for residential, $100,000.00 or 50% or whichever is less for commercial and $100.000.00 for government installations.


Think you might have found a lower price ?

Better take a closer look because we can pretty much guaranty that the system you found will include cheap, non name brand solar panels that are manufactured by a tiny overseas company that has a good chance of not being around in 3 or 4 years to honor their 25 year warranty. Or even "A Series" factory defective "B" solar panels that are coming out of Florida that use lower cost String Ribbon technology. Or solar panels with less than 25 year warranties. Or lower efficiency Canadian UMG solar panels. Or low cost mounting racks that are made from much thinner aluminum. Or an inverter that uses lower cost high frequency technology. And just wait till you get a load of that other dealer's shipping cost.

At Puerto Rico Solar, We Offer Only The Finest Name Brand Equipment On The Market.

We are ardent in our belief that the more industry documented facts that we can provide you with that are free of all the sales gimmicks, half truths and confusing double talk that is beginning to become rampant in our industry, the more rewarding and enduring your investment into solar will be.

Only The Finest Available Products

Ask any alternative energy engineer, installer or dealer and they'll all tell you the same thing. With more than 750,000 Sunny Boy inverters sold and operating worldwide "The Sunny Boy SB3000US' proven technology makes this unit one of the best grid intertie inverters available on today's market." Like a fine German crafted sports car, the SB3000US is engineered and built in Germany, the hotbed of the worlds finest renewable energy technology. We've taken SB3000US' unbeatable German craftsmanship and reliability a step further by adding one of the world's highest performance solar panels available.

When it comes to purchasing a solar system for your home or business it is crucial that you take a very close look at the solar panels that the dealer is offering you. After all, solar panels are the workhorse of any solar system. Far too many consumers simply purchase what ever it is that a dealer happens to have available without even looking at a specification sheet. Performance that is lacking by just a few percentage points or an inferior warranty can make all the difference in the world over the expected life of a solar panel.

With more than nine years of experience operating our own state of the art, in-house solar repair center, we know what technologies perform well in the real world and what technologies do not.

 Over the years, we've seen expensive, name brand, solar panels fail only after a few months worth of use. We've even seen popular U.S. made solar panels fail soon after the manufacturer closed its doors leaving its customers with no warranty.

This is why it is important that you choose a solar panel manufacturer that is well established in the industry and has the financial strength to be there in the event that a warranty claim arises. This is exactly why we chose Suntech for our Platinum series solar systems.

 

Suntech knows how important quality is to its customers and has implemented a tiered, multi-step approach to quality control that follows the production of its solar products from inception to completion. At Suntech every quality control officer is given ownership of individual production processes to ensure responsible management. Standard Operating Procedures are strictly adhered to and a key focus of each supervisor.

 At each level of quality control there is a redundant series of inspections by multiple qualified QC professionals ensuring that each product meets their stringent, internal expectations of quality.

When it comes to performance, reliability, quality and value, absolutely no other brand tops Suntech.

Thin might be in when it comes to waistlines and the latest HDTV sets but when it comes to securing the bulk of your investment to the roof of your home you want the strongest mounting system made out of the thickest aircraft grade aluminum that money can buy. The engineers at UniRac understand this premise and we do too so we've added the finest mounting rack systems available today. The UniRac SolarMount system is unsurpassed in quality and durability, rated to withstand 120 miles per hour wind speeds, UniRac SolarMounts are engineered to last a lifetime.

Finally we top off our systems with the best price that you'll find anywhere. In fact, we're so sure that ours is the best deal available, that we'll beat any nationally advertised price on our same, in stock, top of the line systems or your system is free.

Unlike other dealers that will sell you a barebones system, our premium quality kits include everything you see listed above.
