• Best photovoltaic location
• Obstacles (if any shading)
• Size of the central electrical panel inside the household
• Places suitable for installation of the electrical elements
• State of the Rooftop (structurally sound or not)
• Square footage suitable for positioning module
To assess your home, the executives from a solar company will take a note of the following points:
• Overall roof size
• Slope angle
• Chimney and vents
• Compass orientation of the rooftop slope
• Roof thickness
• Strong trees or other blockages in or around the residential property
Documentation and permits
Like every significant financial move, there is a lot of documentation involved with rooftop solar panels for the house. For on-grid networks, permits are needed, when you would like to opt for net metering or gross metering. Typically, permits differ from state to state and depend on the form and scale of construction of solar panels.
Global Solar Energy takes care of all the documentation processes making it hassle-free for customers.
Regardless, it is still a smart thing to know and understand what is happening with your solar power plant.
Solar Panels: The solar developer will begin by preparing the rooftop. It would make sure that the panels are fixed correctly. Installation on the roof is not applicable or desired, the solar panels could also be mounted on the ground. You just need to make sure that there are no objects blocking access to the sun.
Electrical Wiring: The solar company then installs electrical wiring, which would connect to your electrical panel and main power system.
After that, the solar inverter must be connected to the system. It is typically installed near the main panel and it could be both indoors and outdoors. Inverters are more efficient if kept in a cooler place.
If the inverter is outdoors, it should be kept out from the afternoon sun. If it is installed indoors, the garage or utility room are usually the best places, since they stay cool for most of the year and have ventilation.
The final step is to switch the power on and test the newly installed solar panel system. After that, the solar panel installation process is completed.
