During your installation

What to expect the day of your installation

We know that deciding to go solar is a big decision for most people. We outlined our process for you so that you can understand what to expect from the first time you contact us to get a quote through when your system is up and running.

The installation

Your crew will consist of an electrician and at least one roof technician, and the installation typically takes between two and three days. (Learn how all of the components work on your solar energy system.)

On the day of your installation, the lead installer will call you to let you know the crew is on its way.

The crew will usually need to enter your house to access the electrical panel and attic or crawl space. They will want to know if it’s okay for them to use your bathroom. Because of the short duration of our installations, we typically don’t arrange for a portable toilet to be delivered to the job site, however it is an option. We may also ask your permission to leave some equipment overnight if you have a secure location like a shed or garage.

Before we arrive on site, please remove all clutter in front of your electrical panel. If you were told that the inverter will be mounted in the garage, make sure to remove all tools or shelving off the wall at the inverter location.

Meet your system

Once installation is completed, an electrician or lead installer will walk you through how your system works. Most times, this happens the day we wrap up the installation, but if you aren’t home, we will schedule another time.

During the walkthrough, we will show you all parts of your solar energy system, starting with your solar array and ending with your inverter. You will learn what to watch for, how to read your inverter, and how to manually shutdown and restart your system. Feel free to ask questions!

“Best explanations of any company we interviewed and beautiful work. We ran into a small glitch with the monitoring system and they took complete responsibility for this and worked with us until it was right–a sign of a good company not only when everything goes smoothly, but ability to manage the unexpected.”
