My suppliers have the same problem. I have spoken to several of them about this issue, and I keep getting the same answer: they can't find them any cheaper, and in fact have to order vast quantities to keep their prices as low as they are. Apparently only certain companies are able to get solar cells at a true wholesale cost, while the rest of us, even most corporations, are stuck with prices 10 times higher than theirs. Who is holding back on cheap solar power?
