The Solar Installation Process

How are Solar Panels Installed?

Before you consider installing solar panels on your home or commercial property, it is a good idea to be familiar with the general solar panel installation process. The average solar system takes approximately 12 weeks to complete from the initial contract to installation completion. Below we have laid out the general steps involved when installing solar power.

Step #1: Evaluate Your Property

The first step is to evaluate whether your property is suitable for solar power. South-facing roofs are ideal, but results can still be achieved with less ideally situated roofs as well. Our engineers will determine how much sunlight your roof would be likely to capture with a solar system and help you determine whether your roof will qualify for rebates and tax credits.

Step #2: Choose the Right Solar System

Next, we will help you determine how powerful of a system would be needed to power your property and go over how the project will be financed, including zero-down options and other financing/purchasing options for qualified customers.

Step #3: Design & Install Your Solar Panels

After you sign your contract, your unique system design will be given to our engineers. Then, we will begin taking care of all of the permitting and rebate paperwork associated with your project. Once the rebate is approved and all permits are received, we can order the materials for your project and prepare for installation. Installation typically takes around three days to complete.

Step #4: Final Inspection

After completion of the installation, we will schedule a final inspection of your property with your local governing body. We will also submit final paperwork to your electric company.
