Solar Panel Installation Process

Solar Panel Installation Process

Solar panel installation is a significant process carried out on the roof over your head. It’s not a project to take lightly – you want to be certain you work with the most qualified installers and a company that will ensure you’re covered with strong warranties. There is no better time to go solar and with Astound Energy you can be sure you’re getting the very best.

Solar Consultation

Initially, you will be paired with one of our energy experts that will start with a meeting over the phone or at your home to ensure you are a good candidate for a solar power system. Our design team will work with you to create a solar system that achieves your goals to become more energy independent.

We then schedule a site survey with one of our licensed electricians who will check the electrical status of your home, condition of your roof, or location of your ground mount. They will examine the roofing type, the angle, shading on the roof, along with many other aspects, in order to make sure that your solar panels and/or backup battery installation are as seamless as possible.

Premier Solar Products

We have access to industry-leading solar products and backup batteries, making us your one-stop shop towards generating your own electricity. We will help you choose any add-ons you would like so that you can be sure you’re getting the best solar system to meet your energy and financial needs.

The information from your site survey is compiled into a comprehensive report for our design team to create a final design for your review. After we finalize your energy plan we will obtain the necessary permits for you so we can set up an appointment for your installation. All technicians are highly trained and certified to ensure that your solar panels and/or backup batteries are installed safely and correctly!

Solar Panel Installation

On the day of your solar panel installation, we will begin by prepping your roof to make sure the shingles or tiles are properly attached. Then we will put in electrical wiring that will connect to your home electrical panel and general power system.

Next, we install the rack mounting system that holds your solar panels together on your roof. Once we are certain it is level, safe, and secure, the panels are placed onto the racking mount system. Lastly, we connect everything required in order for your solar power system to pass the final inspection. Our teams of expert installers work very efficiently, and the majority of our solar panel installations are completed in 1-2 days.

Enjoy Solar Power

Once we finish your solar panel installation, our project coordinators will help you get your system connected to the power grid. A city inspector will need to come out and make sure that everything has been done according to code.

Once this inspection is passed, we work with your local utility company to turn on your solar panels and/or backup storage batteries. Once you are connected to the grid, you can live more comfortably and enjoy the luxuries of modern electricity without the fear of a high bill at the end of the month. Your solar panels and/or backup storage batteries will be creating clean energy for your home and community for decades to come!
