AstroPower Inc. (Newark, DE) and Home Depot have announced that AstroPower’s residential solar electric power systems are now being sold through select Home Depot stores in Delaware, New Jersey, and New York. This marks the initial East Coast expansion of the companies’ solar power program, which was established in three San Diego, CA, stores in Sept. 2001.

The solar power systems will now be featured in Home Depot stores throughout Long Island, NY, five stores in southern New Jersey, and four in Delaware. This expansion brings the total number of Home Depot locations that carry the systems to 61. These include 18 stores in greater San Diego, as well as 16 in the Los Angeles area.
