Unpredictable Supply Chains May Cause Shipping Delays

Unpredictable Supply Chains May Cause Shipping Delays


As Backwoods Solar continues to forge ahead through these uncertain times, we are starting to see the effects of COVID-19 ripple through the industry, causing longer lead times and shortages of some products. Many of our suppliers are experiencing strained supply chains and/or reduced staff, sometimes creating delays in production and delivery. Reduced supply of steel and aluminum have created longer lead times for some models of roof, ground and post mounts for solar modules, while high demand and limited staffing have increased lead times on many popular refrigerator and freezer models. In addition, battery distributors have less stock on hand of many popular brands and models, causing delays in delivery. We are also seeing shortages of several electrical components, including the popular Xantrex C60 Charge Controllers, which are backordered through September 2020.

Backwoods Solar is working hard to ensure we are able to weather all supply chain fluctuations in the coming months, and we continue to be confident that we can provide you with the equipment to meet your needs. We do not anticipate any products becoming completely unavailable and we have increased our stocking levels of frequently used items in our electrical system designs to ensure we have the right components for you. We strive to keep our customers informed of any delays so that you have the information you need to make informed decisions during the design process.

Special Pricing On Custom
Midnite Classic 250 OEM Build

Midnite Classic 250 Charge Controller (Specia OEM Buildl)Backwoods Solar has acquired a limited supply of special OEM custom built Midnite Classic 250 Charge Controllers at a very special price. These units differ from the standard Classic 250 build in a few respects. They have no Aux ports, no speaker, no Arc Fault and no stacking jacks. This means they will not work with the Midnite Solar Wiz Bang JR battery monitor kit. However, they do come with the battery temp sensor and have the standard networking and programming functions. These controllers are solar only and not meant for use in micro-hydro and/or wind power applications.

Normal retail price for the standard Classis MPPT 250 controller is $825 but you can get this custom build controller for just $550. Click here for more information and to place your order.Supply is limited and pricing applies to stock on hand.
