Predictability and transparency form the foundation of our services to Durham, CT residents. We go the extra mile to ensure that our customers know exactly what they can expect in terms of product performance, service quality, and responsiveness from us. Also, by giving them a step-by-step plan, we remove any uncertainty surrounding our services.
It places our customers in a better position to plan and make decisions. So, here’s our 6-step solar power installation process for Durham residents:
- Step 1: Tentative Quote Based on Satellite Images
The decision to go solar is easy but involves a few considerations. Price, among other things, is one of the most important factors at play. Therefore, we get it out of the way as early as possible during decision-making.
Once you call us and share your interest, we gather your power needs, use satellite images to estimate your rooftop area, and develop a tentative quote for your solar system.
- Step 2: Surveyor Visit and Layout Finalization
For the next step, we’ll schedule a surveyor to visit your location and perform a site inspection. As part of their inspection, they’ll make sure that your roof is suitable for solar panel installation, and if it requires a redo, they’ll advise you accordingly.
Once they are satisfied with the inspection, they’ll present you with the installation layout and finalize it with you.
- Step 3: Permits and Documentation
The paperwork associated with solar installation often takes up as much as eight weeks, largely because of slow government processes. However, we’ll take care of everything, with minimum intervention from your side.
- Step 4: Equipment Ordering
Once we get the necessary permits for your solar installation, we’ll immediately order the equipment. This step can take up a few days, depending on equipment availability and supply chain constraints.
- Step 5: Installation
The big day is finally here. Well, it’s actually more like 2 days. We complete most solar installations in about 2 days, depending on their complexity and customization. We don’t need your presence for this step; only the access to your property.
- Step 6: Activation and Interconnection
Once all the installation is complete, there will be a final round of inspection. An inspector from your utility company will review and certify your electrical setup for interconnection with the grid, while a local government inspector will grant the final permit separately.
Then, it’s just a matter of a flip of a switch to activate your solar installation.
