How Long Does It Take?
Own your electricity, start saving, and protect the environment within 40–60 days from start to finish!
Every solar system is customized to the specific needs of a home. We start by determining the amount of clean electricity needed by your household. A good indicator is your historic power usage, which we can easily find on your past bills, or by calling your utility provider.
Based on your electricity requirements, the location of your house, size and type of your roof, we start composing a system that matches your needs while taking aesthetic consideration into account. We also research the best available finance options based on your credit qualifications.
DESIGNING YOUR SYSTEM
Our operations team will schedule a site-survey, during which they confirm the draft system configuration, and make adjustments to the plan as needed in real time. We will go over the entire process with you, review approval and financing timelines, and complete necessary paperwork to get started.
Within approximately one week to ten business days from the site visit, we provide you with the final plan. Depending where you live, you may be required to submit this plan to a Home Owners Association for review.
PERMITS, INSTALLATION & INSPECTIONS
Upon approval we obtain all necessary building and electrical permits, and request the utility interconnection application on your behalf. This may take anywhere from 2–5 weeks. As soon as we have the permits in hand we can schedule the installation, which will be completed in 1–2 days, depending on the size of the system. Final MySolar inspection, and the official building and electrical inspections usually take place the same day. Depending where you live, the Historic Board may request to inspect the installation or to obtain photographs. We have local professional engineers that can perform an on-site evaluation for a PE letter. After the completed inspections, the system typically goes online in less than 10 days.
