Many people are concerned that getting solar energy in Los Angeles, Ventura or Orange County is going to be a long and grueling process, but that isn’t the case. The whole process is actually rather simple and can be completed in just a few weeks from start to finish. To help you better understand how the process works and what you can expect to happen, check out the information below.
1. Site Assessment
The whole thing begins with a site assessment. One of our dedicated professionals will come out to your home and take a look at the roof to determine what it is that we are dealing with. We will then take a few measurements to get an idea of just how much space you have available for panels to be put in place. Then, we have to figure out where to put them to help maximize the power of the sun and help you save as much money as possible.
2. Getting the Plans and Permits
After the site assessment, we use the information to create the plans and submit it to the city to get the necessary permits in order to begin the installation. Every city has different requirements, so the timeframe is going to vary from one municipality to another.
3. Installation and the Final Inspection
After the city approves the permits, our team will schedule a time to come out and get one of the teams to work on installing your new solar system. Installation normally only takes a day or two at the most. Once everything is completed, a city inspector will come out and perform a final inspection and make sure everything is ready to go.
