2. Make Your Decision, Sign a Contract, and Begin Final Review

When you are ready to move forward with a solar PV system design, it is time to sign a contract and pay your 10% down payment—triggering the review process.

Review Process

Schedule In-Person Site Assessment

With the remote processes completed part of the review process is to assess your home or business’s electrical setup. At the scheduled site assessment we take pictures on the ground of your potential equipment locations, conduit runs, and electrical panels. We encourage you to be there to ask questions and learn more about how solar will be connected to your site.

Conduct Drone Flight

With our FAA Part 107 Certified Drone Pilot taking pictures to create a to-scale three-dimensional model of your home using Scanifly’s 3D modeling software.

This step is weather dependent and may be conducted at another time than the in-person assessment when the weather cooperates, which can be done with no supervision or time taken off of you.

Review Site Assessment Photos and 3D Model

After the site assessment is complete, our office will review the information gathered from your site. Here, we will double-check the solar array design to ensure it will fit or needs adjustment due to roof obstructions or dimension constraints. Assess and communicate our interconnection method, where your solar PV energy will save you money! If there are no issues, we can move on to the next step.

3. Schedule Your Installation Date

Once the review process is complete, you will pay 60% of the deposit to get on our installation schedule. In this step, we will also begin creating the documents associated with your project such as the single-line and site plan.

4. Installing your solar PV system and Passing Inspection

Our journeyman electrician needs access to the site’s main electric breaker panel.
