Andalay PV Panels now available for do-it-yourselfers through Lowes
The Andalay panels are easier for homeowners to install because almost all of the parts and pieces are integrated into the panels themselves. In addition, Andalay states that you can add panels to your system over time as your needs increase because each panel has its own individual inverter that convert the DC power produced by the panel to the AC power needed to power your home. This means that you don't have to worry about resizing your inverter as your system size changes.
21 Lowe's shops across California now carry Anadalay PV panels and Lowe's plans to expand their Energy Centers throughout the US and Canada in 2010.
