Steps to the Solar Installation Process

Solar energy contractor in Utah
Professional contractors streamline the solar panel installation process in order to make switching to photovoltaic power easy. But what does the process actually involve? Here at Greenify Energy Savers, we get this question quite frequently – and understandably so, as homeowners need to know what to expect before embarking on any home improvement project. In light of this, we decided to share a guide to the solar panel installation process.

Step 1: Solar Energy Contractor Consultations

Most reputable photovoltaic contractors, including the team at Greenify Energy Savers, offer free consultations and estimates for solar energy system installation. Schedule appointments with a few different companies, then compare the price per watt (PPW) as you consider their bids.

Step 2: Solar Panel Installation Contract

After you decide which professional photovoltaic contractor you want to hire, you’ll need to sign a contract. Before you commit to the project, however, make sure the contract indicates the specific equipment to be installed and provides details on energy output, warranty terms, and financing arrangements.

Step 3: Solar Energy Adoption Paperwork

Next is obtaining the building and electrical permits we handle this paperwork but occasionally, some areas require something from the customer.

Step 4: Solar Energy System Equipment

Once the permits and paperwork are good to go, it’s time to order the solar panels and other system equipment the project requires. Professional photovoltaic contractors handle this step, but this is the point when you’ll schedule a day for your solar energy system installation.

Step 5: Solar Panel System Installation

The company you hired will complete the work without your assistance, but be prepared – installing a solar energy system can be rather noisy. And if your project is complex, it may take more than one day to complete. The installers may need to ask for your wi-fi connection information unless you opted for a cell kit to monitor your system online.

Step 6: Solar Energy Interconnection

The final step is to connect the system to the local utility grid, which requires approval from your city’s building inspector and signoff from the electricity provider. Your photovoltaic contractor will arrange for the necessary inspections and make sure everything proceeds without a hitch. After it is all complete, you will be able to monitor your system online. We will also give you all the information for tax credits for your new solar system.
