Solar panel system installation: what to expect

If you’re considering installing a solar panel system at home, you may be wondering what happens during the installation process and what you can expect. More people are opting for home solar systems now because they want to break free from conventional energy, reduce their environmental footprint, and lower their monthly energy costs. 

In this article, we’ll discuss each step of the installation process from start to finish. If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact our team today – they’ll be happy to help.

Step #1: Install Solar Panel Mounts

The first step is installing solar panel mounts. These pieces are affixed to your roof, and then your solar panels are affixed to the mounts. Your solar installer will inspect your roof to determine what type of mounts will work best, and then they’ll place them in the ideal position for maximum sun exposure. While it’s true that solar panels generate energy on cloudy days, you want your solar panels to be in the best position possible to absorb as much sunlight as they can, hency why it’s so important to properly place the mounts. 

Step #2: Install the Solar Panels

Once the mounts are firmly in place, it’s time to attach the solar panels to the mounts. Your solar installer will ensure the panels are properly attached to the mounts and that they’re angled correctly. It’s important that your solar panels are securely affixed to the mounts.

Step #3: Wire the Solar Panels

After your solar panels have been secured to the mounts, you’ll need to install the electrical wiring. Turn off your home’s power supply before this step. 

Step #4: Install Solar Inverter and Consumer Unit

The solar inverter is a crucial part of the home solar system. It converts sunlight into the energy used to power your home. Solar inverters are usually placed near the main solar panel, and we recommend they be kept in a cool place away from direct sunlight. 

The solar inverter will need to be connected to the consumer unit, which is your fuse board, in order to generate electricity. 

Step #5: Start and Test Solar Panels

You’re now ready to turn your power back on and let your solar panels get to work. Once your home solar system is up and running you can install an app on your phone that allows you to monitor your electricity usage in real time.

Are you a small business owner who is considering investing in solar power for your company? Solar panel systems have greatly increased in popularity among homeowners across the country, and many business owners are also investing in solar panels in order to run their businesses using completely clean, renewable energy from the sun. In this article, our team will discuss the benefits and cost factors of choosing solar power for your small business. 

Benefits of Solar Energy for Small Businesses

  • Decrease your monthly energy bills. Keeping your air conditioning and heating systems pumping year round, as well as your lights on, results in big monthly electricity costs. After the initial cost of installation, you’ll quickly see your energy bills decrease without seeing any interruptions in performance. 
  • Tax credits. The Federal Government offers a 26% rebate towards the overall cost of your solar system. So if the total cost of your solar system installation is $20,000, you are eligible for a $5,200 tax credit. 
  • Reduce your carbon footprint. We all have a role to play in reducing pollution, reducing carbon emissions, and making more environmentally friendly choices. Solar power is an entirely free, clean, and renewable energy source to take advantage of. 

Solar power gives you a great return on investment

The sooner you pay off the installation cost of your solar system, the sooner you’ll begin to see a return on investment (ROI). In fact, for small business owners who have solar panels, it’s typical to see a double-digit ROI for their solar system – these valuable savings are incredibly important for small businesses operating on smaller margins than large corporations. 

Solar power reduces your business operating costs

How many times has your HVAC system broken down, leaving your business without air conditioning or heating? In addition to saving money on regular monthly energy bills, solar panels also eliminate the need for expensive upgrades on your HVAC systems and emergency repair costs. 

How Much Does Solar Cost for Businesses?

The cost of installing a solar system for your business will be determined by several factors:

  • The energy demands of your small business
  • The make and model of solar panels you choose
  • The type of roof you have 

Our team will be happy to discuss these details and provide you with an accurate estimate.
