Timeline & Expectations
This step we are simply evaluating your project based on a number of factors; energy consumption, geographic location, roof type, etc. It is important to provide our specialist with all the information in our contact form to properly build your assessment.
Once completed we will send over the information for your review!
Critical Information :
- Recent energy/utility bill ( last 3 months )
- Approximate age and type (shingle, tile, slate) of your roof.
One of our solar specialists will touch base after sending the initial assessment. Our goal is to discuss your needs and answer any questions you may have about the project.
To get the most out of your consultation:
- Review the initial assessment in detail.
- Prepare questions!
- Allocate 15 - 30 minutes to discuss you needs in detail.
After your initial consultation, we’ll schedule an in-person appointment. Your solar specialist will connect with you to review your customized solar options and answer any questions. They'll also provide you with potential electricity bill savings. We'll then work with you to propose a custom plan that'll best fit your home.
Once you've agreed to move forward, we'll schedule a time for one of our site assessors to meet you at your home, where we’ll take a deeper dive into evaluating your home. During the assessment, they’ll evaluate your roof and begin taking measurements to create your custom plan.
After your assessment, our design team will create your system design. We’ll work with you to finalize the design documents and ensure a solar solution that’s built for your home’s needs. Once we’ve engineered an efficient system for your home, we’ll send you the final system and drawings for approval.
Now that your design is ready, we’ll coordinate with your local municipality to get approval. You won’t have to do anything during this step, because our team will prepare and submit all of the paperwork. Due to the approval process being in the hands of the local municipality, this step could take some time. We’ll let you know as soon as everything is approved so that we can schedule the installation.
Now that your permitting is approved and paperwork has been signed, our team will get to work on your solar installation. The process takes about 1 – 3 days. We’ll coordinate with you to determine a schedule for delivering equipment and completing your home’s installation. Our installers will need access to your home and breaker boxes, so we ask that you’re there during the first two days.
After the installation, we’ll work with your utility to make sure the system complies with energy standards and is grid-connected. The inspection will also help us ensure long-term quality and performance from the system. We’ll let you know when the municipality inspection will take place.
We’ll do the heavy lifting by applying for permission to operate from your local utility. Once approved, we’ll call or email you and provide instructions on activating your system. Review the instructions and start generating solar power at your home. Now your system is live and ready to harness the power of the sun.
We monitor and maintain your solar panels for you, and offer an included-warranty at no extra cost to you.
Share your solar experience with your family, friends and neighbors so that they, too, can harness the power of the sun. Then sit back, relax and refer others.
