I would imagine so. There is a well regarded solar shop in Arizona (someone help me here) and, like buying tires in the US, you probably won't get noticed driving back across the boarder with panels on the roof.

Why is it cheaper in US? Latest residential panels I looked at were Canadian!

There is a wholesaler in BC that will sell you a complete engineered kit for your unit.
I bought mine from a company in Quebec that had similar kits. My 200 watt kit has been great for the past 3 years.
It was much cheaper then the US kits for me.
Do a search on EBay.
