All this is a bunch of bull. Andalay is very reliable and are leaders in the industry with many patents and great solar panels. You really must of been an idiot and not followed proper directions. Andalay is a great company with great products. Get your facts straight buddy.
Andalay panels desperate when rain gets on them. They also attract bird poop and my neighbors hear a buzzing noise at night coming from the panels seperating and vibrating.

YES, BRAD IS CORRECT THAT IT WAS ALL ABOUT MARKETING. AFTER ANDALAY DROPPED THE WESTINGHOUSE LABEL, THEY ALSO DROPPED THEIR PRICES ON THEIR AC MODULES. YES THERE WAS A DIFFICULT TRANSITION TIME A YEAR AGO WHEN IT WAS IMPOSSIBLE TO PROCURE THEIR MODULES, BUT NOW EVERYTHING SEEMS TO BE RUNNING SMOOTHLY AND SOON WE SHOULD SEE ANDALAY'S FIRST USA MADE PANELS HIT THE MARKET. WHAT DOES ANDALAY MEAN IN SPANISH ANYWAY ?

Stock plummets from 2010 - 2014

As you can see, its not been a pretty picture for investors in small cap solar stock Andalay Solar while Real Goods Solar, Inc has taken long term investors on a wild ride while SolarCity Corp debuted at the right time to catch the updraft in solar.

Anytime a company attempts to reinvent the wheel in any specific industry, the product more often than not ends up coming out egg shaped. This is the case with Andalay. The system requires product specific parts and tools that are harder to source than usual as the company's contacts are unresponsive. Aesthetically, the raking penetrations end up on the outside of the array footprint, instead of hidden underneath. Any maintenance to the array requires full removal of the system to access the problem module. Minimal installation adjustments produce a less than ideal final product. Electrical interconnections between adjacent modules do not meet manufacturer specifications for string connections (see MC4 installation manual) and ma become loose causing string faults and dangerous DC arcing that I would not want any system owner to have to worry about.

Bad review from customer.

Worst customer service after sale
By Tom Ferraro on June 13, 2014
I have these panels on my roof. 3 of them don't work any more. All of them have the paint faded on the frames and look terrible. I've tried calling and writing letters to this company and no one responds. IF YOU READ THIS REVIEW AND DO BUSINESS WITH THEM, YOU DESERVE WHAT YOU GET!!!

Does anyone know about the county's solar project? I would like to apply for a job.
