How to Proceed With Solar Panel Installation

There are five main steps that your selected solar company is likely to follow: Planning, engineering site visit, permitting, documentation and ordering equipment. The first three steps will always be taken by your local authority. The exception to this would be if you were considering a large commercial application where the local authority would likely have preferred that you not proceed with the project. This would be particularly true for large industrial applications such as car washing or large manufacturing plants. For more details about solar panel, click here:

Before you can start with the planning stage of your solar energy system installation, you need to determine where you wish to locate the panels once the site has been defined. Your engineer will then give you a detailed site map. This map will include precise directions to the surface on which to position your panels. This allows the installation crew to simply work from the proposed location on the map without having to navigate around obstacles or to seek permission from local land owners. If you are installing solar panels on a large commercial property, it may also be required by law to seek the consent of the property owner before proceeding.

Next, your  BRS panels will need to be strategically placed on the roof. As with any electrical installation process the installation crew will need to carefully consider the structure of your roof. A professional installation company will be able to assist you in determining the best configuration and location of your panels for maximum energy production. Depending upon the type of roof you have your installation may be limited in terms of the types of materials you can use and whether or not you can incorporate any type of solar heating system into the installation process. Be sure to discuss these important issues with your roofing contractor during your initial consultation. The engineer will be able to assist you in determining the best configuration based upon the roof type and on your level of expertise and skill.

Depending upon your location in the final solar panel installation location will vary somewhat. Some states require that you locate the system on the south or west side of your house while other states do not have this requirement. Again, the engineer will be able to give you the best advice based upon your location and on your level of expertise. You may decide that you prefer to place your solar panel system on the west or south side of your home.

A final consideration for any solar panel installation is the types of hardware that you will need. Your chosen installation company should be able to provide you with solar voltage converters and solar battery chargers to help you maximize your solar power production. Make sure you choose equipment that works well together so you can maximize both your electric savings and your overall energy production from solar energy.
Your final consideration in the solar panel installation process is the warranty offered by your solar contractor. The longer the warranty offered the better. This allows you to return the product in the event that it does not work as it was supposed to. If you are unsure about which warranties to look for ask your solar contractor for their recommendation. Check out this related post to get more enlightened on the topic:
