I guess they don't stock them because not enough people buy them.
There is a kind of home appliances supermarket here in California
called Frys which stocks solar panels so they do show up in retail

More people would buy them if they stocked them.
Do you agree?
Thank you for the info, but in South Carolina can I get Frys to ship to me?

Yes certainly, though stocking them doesn't mean that they'll sell in

There was a major US maker of panels that did a deal with Home Depot
maybe 5 years ago. They stocked them and they never sold, end of deal.

Were they actually in the store?
I never saw them in the Home Depot in my town.
Do you mean they put up display panels and had them available by order with
one model in the store?
I just don't belive that solar panels wouldn't sell if they had 100 of them
in the store.
Looks like some protectionism going on to me.
