Solar Panels

Familiarize yourself with what the process of getting solar panels installs looks like so you know what to expect.

There’s a lot of mystery around solar panels for the everyday consumer and homeowner and that’s something we hope to help change. In fact, the solar installation process—especially when guided by an experienced expert in the field—isn’t as overwhelming or complex as you may think. In fact, it’s not all that dissimilar from other major investments that homeowners may make, like installing a new deck or building a home addition. Let’s take a look at what the steps of getting new solar panels installed looks like.   

Getting on the Same Page

First, you need to find someone whose work ethic and experience aligns with what you need. Finding the right solar panel installer isn’t always easy, but if you do the right research, you can rest easy knowing that they will help walk you through the rest of the process. Next, it’s time to get an estimate—which of course all depends on the condition of your roof, the geographic location of your home, your average utility bills, and other factors.  

Evaluating the Property

At this point, it’s time for the installer to come check out your property. This allows them to figure out what equipment you may need and also take into account the state of your property: your roof, attic, and electrical system all need to be checked to ensure that a solar system will work for you. They also use this time to determine where your hardware will actually get mounted.

Prepping For Installing

Once your installer has all their measurements and information they need, they can now create a design plan which details how many solar panels you need, where they will be placed, and all the electrical details that need to be sorted. It’s also during this phase that they figure out what permits are needed and make sure everything is up to code with your locality.

Actual Installation

Your patience has paid off! Now it’s time for the installer to get to work putting the panels in place. This is where you kick back and watch them do their job. Installation is typically done within a week, but this depends on the size and complexity of your system and whether or not you need any additional roofing work done.
