So you’ve finally decided to try solar energy. What happens next? Solar panel installation generally involves several steps. SeeMore Solar is here to give you a general understanding of what happens during the process. We are Cape Coral, Florida‘s trusted solar company, and have performed several solar installations in the area for over 45 years.

Here’s what you can expect during your solar panel installation with SeeMore Solar:

1. Initial Consultation

This usually involves discussing your energy needs, looking at your energy usage, and understanding your goals for going solar. SeeMore Solar will provide a quote or estimate for the proposed system at this stage. You can get one NOW by calling (239) 243-9191.

2. Site Assessment or Survey

Before the installation can begin, a professional or project coordinator from SeeMore Solar will visit your home to assess the roof condition, sun exposure, and any potential issues that might affect the installation or performance of the panels.

3. Design and Engineering

Based on the site assessment, the system will be designed to suit your home and energy needs. The layout of the panels, the choice of the inverter, and other system components will be decided. This step will also determine if additional work is required.

4. Permits and Paperwork

SeeMore Solar will handle the necessary permits and paperwork required by your local government and utility company. This might also include applying for any applicable solar incentives or rebates. Depending on where you live, permitting can take a month or longer.

5. Installation

After the approval of the project’s permits, the installation process begins. The physical installation of solar panels typically takes one to three days, depending on the size of the system. This includes installing the mounts for the panels, attaching the panels, and installing the inverter and wiring.

6. Inspection and Interconnection

After the installation, an inspection will usually be conducted by local officials to ensure the system complies with all codes and regulations. Your utility company will also need to give approval before the system can be connected to the grid. This step is crucial for systems that are eligible for net metering.

7. System Turn-On

Once inspections are passed and all the necessary approvals are in place, your system can be turned on. You’ll start generating your own solar power, reducing or even eliminating your electricity bills.

8. Monitoring and Maintenance

Most solar installers will provide a monitoring system that allows you to track your solar system’s performance. You can see how much power you’re generating and using. Maintenance needs for solar panels are generally low, but it’s good to keep an eye on the system performance to make sure everything is working as it should.

Remember that each installation will be unique, so the exact process may vary. It’s also important to note that while the installation itself can be quite quick, the entire process from consultation to system turn-on can take several weeks or even a few months due to the time needed for design, permitting, and inspections.
