Your one-stop shop solar experts Sunlight is a one-stop shop for solar photovoltaic installation. This means that when you’re ready to take the first step toward renewable energy, you can leave it to us to handle every step that comes next. Our Installation Timeline: It usually takes only 1-2 days to install panels on a home, but a lot more goes into solar than just putting up panels. Here’s what we do after our preliminary site assessment:
DESIGN Our engineers design a custom system to meet your specific energy needs. Once we receive the go ahead with your project, you’ll received a welcome package with detailed information on the process and what to expect. Simultaneously, your information is sent to our design department to start the technical drawings.
PERMIT We apply for all necessary permits with your utility and jurisdiction. When the structural and electrical plans are complete, we work with local jurisdiction and utility companies to get the necessary paperwork and permits for your project.
INSTALL Our trained crew begins installing your system. When the permits are granted, our construction coordinator will reach out a schedule a time for the installers to come out to install the racking system and set the modules.
INSPECT Local jurisdiction inspects our installation to make sure it’s up to code. When the installation is complete, we coordinate a time with local jurisdiction to come out and inspect the system.
INTERCONNECT The utility company replaces the meter in your home with a new net meter. After the solar PV system passes the inspection, the utility is then notified. In a few days, they will go out to your property and install a net meter that connects the solar system to the grid.
