Does anyone have a good list for online retailers for the US?

Looking for full size solar panels and not smaller stuff.

I've found shop.signaturesolar.us and santansolar.com from Will's videos.

Thanks.

I recommend signature for all growatt hardware, and santan for solar panels. If you get damaged panels santan will ship you replacements free of charge.

Look at San Tan Solar, in AZ and opening another store. Decent prices, excellent if you can pick up and avoid freight.

Personally purchased from the first 3. The first 2 are old timers (in business for at least 10 years).

Also check craigslist. I was shocked to see someone not too far from me who must be buying large quantities of panels and sells them by the pallet for very reasonable prices.

Echoing what rmaddy said above, I went with CEDGreenTech. They have a store local to me. I was happy with the price, got them the same day and they were perfect.

Thanks for all the replies.

I'm in the MidWest and don't have any stores nearby that I'm aware of (SignatureSolar might be the closest at a 5 hour drive).

Looking at 400-500 watt panels for a possible future system.

If you order by the pallet then shipping isn't too terrible.. about the price of one of those panels.

There are people local to me who also sell them in small to huge quantities but I think they are all used panels. Seems the solar companies swamp them every few years and these people resell them.

I sell new 325 watts solar panels
Twenty or more $110.
I could ship pallets across the country on freight, usually cheaper to just ship them to a trucking station near you, aprox. $400 to many states.
Two pallets or more $105, three pallets or more $100.
I may have another order on the midwest and do the delivery on my trailer for a cheaper fee. Send me a private message if you are interested. 400-500w are still pricey per watt, unless you have limited space.
thank you

altestore.com I have bought a few things from them, they have some good options.
I've purchased many things from alte over the last 3 years - 24 panels, midnite classic 150s, midnite combiner boxes, lightning arrestors. The only downside is they're on East Coast of US I'm on West Coast and shipping for large items such as panels, ironride 14ft rails is an extra couple of hundred. You want to buy freight items as near to you as you can.

I've also purchased 44 used panels from ebay "Santan solar" with good results - https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2380057.m570.l1313&_nkw=santan+solar&_sacat=0 I know that @Will has purchased from them as well per his youtubes.

I just called my "local" CED Greentech and they said they don't sell to individuals :( Not sure if each location has different policies or what?

Out of curiosity, which location is that? I know the Orlando, FL (based on a forum user in another thread) and Denver, CO (what I used) locations have no problem selling low volume to individuals.

Maybe call the retail friendly stores for purchase and pick up and the non-retail friendly store instead?

Go to your local taxing authority, get a certificate, ala, you are a business. I was in MN....easy peasy. Get an EIN from the feds, ala you are a business.
