Grid-Tied Solar Kits For Your Home Arrive At Costco
Think Costco is just for gigantic boxes of macaroni and cheese or 42 lb bags of rice? Think again! Costco is now selling grid-tied solar energy kits, ranging in price from $3,599.99 for an 880Watt system all the way up to $17,999.99 for a 5060Watt system. The kits are from solar provider Grape Solar, which prides itself on being made in America with the market’s “lowest per watt pricing”, have been available over at Amazon.com for a while and have now arrived in the true mass marketplace — a warehouse store. I don’t shop at Costco because, well, I don’t need anything in bulk that is worth the price of admission, but if I was in the market today for solar panels I might just have to sign up for a membership.
