When you are ready for your new solar panel system, you only need to select the installer and they will do the rest. Prior to your installation a technician from the installation company will measure your roof and adjust any obstructions that could prohibit the full advantage of the sun using a rooftop aerial software. During this initial inspection, your electric panel and meter will also be inspected to determine whether it needs upgrading or if it will sufficiently handle the new additions.
Permits and tax credit
An installation company will also get the needed permits from local agencies and you will need to sign for solar renewable energy certificates and federal investment tax credit. An actual installation takes between one and three days depending on roofing materials and the solar system. The process will start by ensuring the racking equipment is sound and capable of holding your solar panels in place.
The new wiring for solar is the first step, which is followed by the racking equipment, thereafter, the panels themselves. The solar panels will then be connected to the power controllers or the inverter.
The final step is an interconnection as well as getting the necessary approval. Your new system cannot go online and provide sun energy until local officials approved it. The inspection must be conducted to ensure the solar system was installed according to the code of conduct, appropriately and safely.
Inspectors will sign off on the installation before the switch is flipped and solar energy is powering your home. When you make use of Solaredge to maximize the use of renewable energy, it will be wall-mounted which is easily done by one or two technicians. Variously sized inverters are used ranging from 50kw and up to 100kw.
It will be activated and configured and easily set up by the installer. You will be able to monitor the system via a smartphone or PC with a Solaredge App that tells you the exact power or lack thereof of individual components.
