We need a copy of your most recent power bill.
In order to know how many solar panels are required to power your home, we need to know how much power you use. On each power bill you receive from the public utility company, there is a graph that shows your electricity consumption over the last year. With that information, we can calculate how many panels you will need to power your home; the number of panels you need determines the cost, savings, tax incentives, and environmental benefits.
We will meet with you in your home.
One of our solar representatives will visit with you in your home to show you the solar design, go over the savings, tax credit, and the environmental benefits, as well as answer any questions you have.
Your roof and electrical system will be inspected to qualify your home for solar (don't worry - the inspection is free).
We comply with all municipal code requirements and will not install solar on a home that is not up to inspection standards. If your home does not qualify (most do) then we will simply tell you what needs to be fixed and give you the time you need to fix it before proceeding.
We will submit permits to the city/county, HOA, and public utility.
Don't worry, we do this part on your behalf so you don't have to lift a finger. We will go to the jurisdiction where you live and submit the construction permits for your system. We also get approval from your HOA as well as the public utility (you need their permission to net meter).
We install your system
Inspection & Activation
Once we have approval on all the permits (usually takes about a month) we will schedule your installation. Installation only takes one day (weather permitting). You will need to be home on the day of your installation, but you can just relax on the couch while we do the work.
After the system is installed, it must be inspected by the state and by the public utility. We will schedule both inspections — once your system is approved, it will be activated and you will enjoy clean electricity powered by the sun!
