06 May Solar Panel Installation: The Process
All across the country, rooftop solar installations have increased over the years and continue to grow rapidly. Through the use of solar arrays, you can utilize clean energy, and at the same time, cut down on your electricity bills each month. If you are thinking about making the switch to powering your home or business with clean, renewable energy, here are the steps to getting solar panels installed for your home or business.
The Solar Installation Process
The Roof Test
The first thing you will need to have is a proposal which includes the layout of the solar array on your rooftop, along with estimated production of the solar array and the associated costs. An engineer will evaluate your home or business to determine if your residence is suitable for solar production. A solar array layout will also help determine possible shading on your rooftop, as this will give a good idea how much electricity your solar panels will be able to generate. To qualify for NV Energy rebates, you need to have a rooftop suitable for solar panels. Once you pass your roofing tests, we will sit down with you to determine the size of the solar array best for your home or business.
Laying the Groundwork
Before anyone installs solar panels on your roofs, a site inspection is needed to identify obstacles and potential problems on your rooftop. After the site verification is completed, the next step is to do the engineering and permitting paperwork, as well as filing for the netmetering application.
Installing the Panels
This next step is the quickest step in the process: installing the solar panels onto your home or business roofs (depending on the size of your solar arrays). The mounting frames are put into place on the roof and anchored into the optimal position. The solar modules are then put into the frames, and the wiring is connected to both the inverter, your service panel and battery storage system if you have chosen to install one.
Checking the Systems
After all the installations, the last step is to check the work and set up the monitoring account for your solar array. Once everything is cleared, your installation is complete and ready to power your home with clean, renewable energy. Because there are no moving parts, maintenance is relatively simple. We recommend you get your solar panels cleaned once a year.
