There are five major steps to a solar panel installation
ineering site visit : After discussion and your agreement over solar system installation, an engineer will come by your property to evaluate the electrical status of your home and ensure everything is compatible with your new energy system. This engineer will typically work directly for us, but could also be an independent provider contracted by us. You can expect the engineering site visit to occur soon after an agreement with us.
During the visit, the engineer will evaluate the condition of your roof to ensure that it’s structurally sound. He or she will evaluate the available area for installation, cable lengths, shadow analysis, Distribution boxes and Inverter meter box installation place etc. If you hear from us that they need to upgrade the electrical panel, it means that your new solar panels will require more amps of current and the ampere capacity of your electrical box will need to increase.
Permits and documents : As with any big financial decision, installing solar panels involves a lot of paperwork. Luckily, most of this paperwork is dealt with by us – regardless, it’s always a good idea to know what’s going on behind the scenes of your solar installation. The documents that will be required from your side will be: 2 Passport size photos, Aadhar card copy, Light bill copy, House tax reciept copy, Phone number, Email id(if any).
Ordering equipment: However, if you’re looking for advice on equipment selection, here are some things to consider. The two primary components you’ll need to evaluate for your system are solar panels and inverters. We will likely recommend a particular brand for each. Durability, efficiency and aesthetics are the primary factors most homeowners will use to compare the various brands (other than price). Be rest assured about the brands as all of them will be MNRE approved/ IEC certified/ compliant with relevent standards.
To be certain that you’ve chosen the right equipment for your system, spend some time researching microinverters vs. string inverters vs. power optimizers and look into the best-rated solar panels on the market. Evaluating your equipment options can help you feel prepared for different stages of the solar panel installation process.
Solar panel installation: The actual installation is an exciting day for every solar homeowner. We will start by prepping your roof and making sure the shingles or tiles are properly attached. Then, a base will be created to fix your solar panels. Once the structure is fixed, electrical wiring is put that will connect to your electrical panel and general power system.
After the electrical wiring is complete, Finally, your inverter(s) are connected to the panels to convert direct current (DC) energy into the alternating current (AC) energy used in homes and on the electric grid.
Approval and interconnection: The final step of going solar is “flipping the switch,” so to speak, and officially commencing to generate power from your rooftop. Before you can connect your solar panels to the electric grid, a representative from your town government will need to inspect the system and give approval. During this inspection, the representative will essentially be checking our work. He or she will verify that the electrical wiring was done correctly, the mounting was safely and sturdily attached, and the overall install meets standard electrical and roof setback codes.
