I'm planning on installing solar panels (total ~300 watts) on my boat this spring. I've found a lot of online solar vendors whose panel prices are very attractive - until the cost of shipping is calculated. I’d like to buy locally somewhere in the Baltimore/Annapolis area and will install myself. Searches reveal a lot of companies geared toward installing residential rooftop systems and it’s hard to discern which, if any, of them sell panels and other solar equipment direct to the consumer. I'd appreciate hearing from anyone who’s had good luck buying locally.
