Free In-Home consultation and Proposal

We are a certified solar installer for SunPower. With that in mind, we can assess your roof’s solar potential with a custom quote that analyzes your energy usage and your potential savings. We will ask you for some energy data from your power bill that helps give us a granular detail of whether solar is a good fit for your home.

Our proposals include the expected design and layout of the solar panels on your roof. These designs focus on maximizing the value of purchasing solar panels for your home and offsetting your current energy usage. The proposal will also include the type of equipment that will be installed on your roof such as model of panel, inverters, battery storage system, and the monitoring system (if purchased).

With our site visit, we can see what other items will be needed with your solar installation. This can include upgraded electrical panels or additional work to make your solar installation go smoothly.

Before Your Installation

As you decide to move forward with your solar installation, we will work with SunPower’s solar system designers to finalize your plan and get the required materials on order. All the aspects of your system follow National Electric Code, local electrical code requirements, and fire safety requirements.

While we get a tentative start date scheduled with you, we are working on the other requirements with the power company, your city or jurisdiction, and permit applications. If you are eligible for net metering, most of our customers are if they are new solar owners, we will handle the application process to get you qualified for net metering. The application process for net metering can take up to 30 days to complete.

Depending on the scale of the solar project, some cities or jurisdictions may require additional designs and permitting. These additional steps vary depending on the city.

During Your Installation

Our solar installations typically take 2-4 days depending on the complexity of your project. The crew will consist of an electrician and at least one roof technician. Our lead installer will meet with you onsite to go over expectations and the daily plan onsite for your project.

The crew will need access to your electrical panel during the project as we are installing your battery system, as well. Many people ask if it will be too loud during the project due to us installing on the roof, there will be some noise, but it will not be as loud in comparison to getting your roof replaced. Also, if we are making any needed panel upgrades or expanding your battery system, you will experience intermittent power outages at your home as our electricians make the needed changes to your panel in the safest way possible.

We will handle the scheduling of inspections for you during the installation of your new solar panels with the permits we acquired before the start of your project. Typically, your electrical inspection will occur after our technicians have completed the installation.

Upon completion of the work, one of the installers will show you how to operate the transfer switches and the rest of the system essentials.

After Your Installation

The only inspection that is required to occur after our technicians are completed with their work is the electrical inspection. Similar to our generators, every electrical inspector interprets the required electrical code differently. Some may require changes to our work.Our office staff will work with you to get one of your installation electricians out to make the required changes and scheduled to get reinspected in a timely manner. Also, you may qualify for the federal tax credits. To learn more about the process of obtaining the federal tax credit, you can learn more here. Like your roof, your solar system will require maintenance. However, solar panel maintenance is minimal. Most solar customers choose to hose off the panels twice a year in the morning while the panels are cool to prevent cracking and damage to the panels. However, if dust, pollen, or other debris is bad, many local window and gutter cleaning companies offer this service and can perform this work. We currently do not offer a solar panel cleaning service. Still need help or are interested in getting solar added to your home?
