Transitioning to power from solar panels is an exciting step for homeowners. There are several steps in the process which ensure the homeowner gets a safe and reliable installation.

The process outlined below begins from the point of having an installer chosen. We suggest looking around and gathering more than one quote to be sure you are getting a fair offer. Our solar online shop allows you to do this easily by providing you with a system quote complete with installation costs. Once you have chosen your system the excitement really begins!

The Site Evaluation

During the site evaluation the installer comes to your home to verify the planned system design. (For our process, if the scope of work has changed, the initial contract is void and amendments are made). The installer will check the roof and attic, the electrical setup, and battery placement (if applicable).

System Design Approval

At this point, results of the site evaluation have come back and any changes needed are now to be approved. If there were changes from the original design, the homeowner may now review those changes and give feedback, or approve the final design before it’s sent for permit approval. Not only the aesthetics of the design are checked, but also the electrical work and system production
