Hi Jeff,

This is the email that Emcore answered to me.

EMCORE does offer mechanical/visual (MV) bare solar cells (MV cells are not
available in SCA's).  MV solar cells have mechanical anomalies or
discoloration that make them unusable for space. MV solar cells have an
efficiency typically greater than 25% at AM0 and 28°C.

*Price *

EMCORE offers MV cells for $50.00 (USD) each with a minimum order quantity
of 150 cells.

*Terms and Conditions*

EMCORE’s MV cells are offered on an “as available, first come, first serve”
basis.  EMCORE’s standard terms and conditions for MV cells are as follows:
1.  Parts sold on an “as is” basis with no warranty. All sales are final.
2.  Quantities offered are subject to continued inventory availability.
3.  Payment is required in advance of shipment by bank transfer or credit
4.        Customer is responsible for all shipping costs (including
insurance) from freight forwarding office.
5.        Minimum purchase price is $7,500.00 for any order.

The standars cells cost $650 (USD) aprox per cell
We are searching solar cells or non qualified solar cells for a cubesat to
make electrical test.
It is not important if they are form Emcore, Spectrolab or whatever.
We need between 6 and 12 cells.

We can not pay more than $70 (USD) per cell

Warm regards from Uruguay
Thank you very much.
