Step 2: The Home and Site Evaluation

When site evaluation process begins, solar installer will evaluate the best solar panels, inverter system, charge controller and other components that will suit your installation.

In the solar power system design phase, the solar installer will evaluate your home to determine the best solar panels, inverter, racking and other components.

It is best advisable to get an installer company that sells, repair a specific brand of solar components so that when installing, the company can do all installation and when little fault is developed, they will resolve it themselves.

As part of the evaluation, your solar installer will make an appointment to inspect your attic, your roof and your home’s electrical system. He will determine the best location to mount the hardware that runs your system (often in your garage or another unobtrusive area). During the inspection, the installer will evaluate your property to ensure that the installation is code compliant and will recommend upgrades if required. For example, if you have an older home, your electrical panel may need to be updated, or when inspecting your attic or roofing, the installer may discover issues that require repair before your system is installed.

Step 3: Solar Power System Design and Implementation

Once all of the information and measurements have been gathered in Step 2, the solar installer will create a solar power system design plan.  The plan will include the number of panels and where they’ll be placed on your roof, the wiring of the solar panel system and how it will be interconnected with the utility.

These days, typical solar installations can be completed as quickly as in one to three days, depending on the size of your system.

After the solar panels are attached to the roof and the related electrical and monitoring equipment is mounted, the installer will clean up the work area and begin the last phase.

Step 5: Inspection and Interconnection

Inspecting your solar installation is paramount to ensure that the installation process went fine without any hitch. The Installer goes through the process of the installation from the beginning to ensures the connection of the solar panels are rightly connected to the charge controller, then to the battery, then to the inverter system to avoid electrical accidental outrage.
