I am upgrading my solar panels and have two Kyrosera 214 Watt panels for sale. They are @ 4 years old. $150 each - Location Jacksonville Fl. Let me know if you are interested.

Ps. I am going to 300W panels.

What are the sizes of the panels.
Out of topic can you please add me to the dropbox. I have requested by email but you have not responded. Is there a way to PM in this forum.

I will measure tomorrow; however, they are what I would call 'normal' size solar panels.

If you sent me an email I did not get it. I normally send out Dropbox invites as soon as I get the request - Check your spam filter or try again.

Hi Peter,
If Carlos doesn't want them or you want to sell them to me, I'll assume they are in good condition with all functioning outputs normal.

My mom's in Jax or I can come up from Tampa to pick them up.

Peter I can only take them if the size is right around the second week of September that is when I'll be in the USA. If you need to sell them now then go ahead and sell them to KeithO.

Thanks but they are too wide for what I have planned. Good luck in selling them.

Ok so I'll take them with the assumptions stated above:
No damage, outputs normal, etc.

How can I pay you?

They work as normal solar panels. You can put an amp meter on them to look at the output. Remember there is no way to turn off solar panels except to open the circuit. You need a controller for them. I use an outback power MPPT controller and can highly recommend it.

Cash is always nice. Send me an email to first name last name jr at google's mail service and we can work out the arrangements for you to pick them up.

Carlos - you are going to have a hard time finding any high output solar cells that are less than 39" wide. That is pretty much a standard width.

I got them from Wayne's Solar. The only reason I used them is because I did not have to pay shipping. They are in Ormond Beach FL. The solar panels. The panels are a little thick 1.81". I am going to build a frame under the panel and rivet it to the sides. I will then cut the edge down to ~ 3/4" so they fit close to the bimini top. You still need to leave about 1/2" under the panel for airflow. Luckily my bimini is sloped so it will have a little bit of a chimney effect.
