    What are the potential taxes from buying panels in the US and sending them to the DR via a shipping company.

    According to what I read, solar panels, charge controllers and inverters for solar power usage are supposed to enter duty free. A door to door shipping company can easily answer your question as of today.

    ROI in such venture is untamed IMO.

    Only a mudanza can answer that properly - my guess

    But theoretically they enter tax free

    Might be worth looking around RD and buying here instead
    Faster for sure. like tomorrow delivery maybe

    Becoming quite common , I hear --- solar panel availability

    Polycrystaline are the best. If one cell dies the others keep operating.... whereas Monocrystaline are like the old christmas tree lights ,,, if one goes out; they all go out.

    I have 4000watts of Polycrystaline on my roof for the past 4 years no real problems.

    How do you incorperate the 4000watts into your home with traditional electricity. A switch to toggle between the two?

    Charge controllers to charge batteries with DC from the panels and an inverter to convert the DC to AC for your house. Some countries allow excess power back to the grid - not sure in the DR if this is possible.

    Some people go with DC appliances as well, but that is a rare decision.

    There are pros and cons to both mono better in warm climates more eff. For less panel size failure rate is low..
