Solar Panel Installation
You’ve done the research and decided to reap the benefits of solar energy. Now that you’re ready to have solar panels installed on your home, you may be hoping to save time and money by doing the work yourself. Yet due to the complexity of permitting and installation, most homeowners who take this route soon see why solar panel installation is a job best left to the professionals at Vision Solar. When you trust our professional installers to handle your project, your home will soon be powered by green, renewable energy from the sun without the hassle of DIY.
Comprehensive Home Assessment
Scheduling a comprehensive home assessment is the first necessary step for any solar panel installation with Vision Solar. During the assessment, one of our team members will evaluate your home’s size and structure to determine where the system should be installed and whether your roof can support the weight of the system. We’ll also measure the amount of sunlight the home receives to ensure you choose the right type of solar panels and a system that is large enough to meet your home’s electrical demands. Should you need to connect to a local utility company’s grid, we’ll take those details into account as well before beginning installation.
Selecting Your Solar Panels
After your home and roof have been inspected, we’ll work with you to choose the best type of solar panels for your home and determine how many are needed. Vision Solar offers monocrystalline silicon, polycrystalline silicon, and thin film options, and each has specific benefits for homeowners. The best choice for your home depends on its size and location, as well as your budget. Your home evaluation will reveal which panel type will deliver the most efficient performance and greatest energy savings.
Permitting and Installation
As with any construction project, you’ll need to secure the proper permits from the jurisdiction in which you reside. If you’re a member of a homeowners’ association, they will be able to assist. However, when you work with Vision Solar, we handle all aspects of permitting to speed the installation process. Our extensive work for homeowners in Pennsylvania and New Jersey ensures that we are well-versed in each city’s requirements and the permits needed before installation may begin.
After receiving the green light from your municipality and homeowners’ association, we will install your solar panels on the ground or roof, depending on the results of the initial assessment. Our highly efficient installation process will be completed within a 24-hour window, so you can begin using greener energy and saving on electricity as soon as possible.
Finally, your utility provider must connect your system to its power grid and set up a bidirectional meter. At this point, a final inspection will be performed to ensure that all work has been properly completed and you have everything needed to draw energy from the sun with your solar panel system.
