What to Expect When Installing Commercial Solar

The installation of commercial solar panels is a complicated process. This blog post will walk you through the steps to take before, during, and after installing your new solar system. 

The first step in installing your new solar system is understanding what type of inverter to use with your particular brand and model of the panel. You also need to know how much wattage you need for your home or business so that you can get an idea of which size array would be best suited for your needs. To find this out, you must have access to electricity usage records from previous years to ensure we’re not oversizing the system for your needs and wasting precious space on the roof with excess panels. 

Project Management

Solar systems are becoming increasingly popular and for a good reason. Your solar company knows the ins and outs of a system, including what utilities expect when installing it. Once you contract your services with us, we Will inform you whom to contact at all times. This process includes their project manager (who manages construction) working closely with an interconnection coordinator (whose job is technical equipment).

The Process of Installing Commercial Solar

What would life be like without electricity? – Would the lights turn on if you flipped a switch in your home or take too long before coming back on. What about charging our cell phones and laptops? We must create renewable energy sources because of all these conveniences. The process behind solar panels is complicated. But we do it so often now with detailed documentation from project managers who have studied this field for years. They need to learn how each region has different rules when connecting them to the grid.

First Process

To maximize the efficiency of your solar production, we will need as much information about you and your system before installation. Doing this research means looking at everything from underground cables to fuses to decide where best to install our project.

Second Process

Ever wonder how a giant, industrial-looking solar farm pops up in the middle of nowhere? That’s because they can be complicated to get approved. With building permits, city permits, state permitting, and more – it depends on location. In some cases, though, utilities will need to change wiring or other equipment at their own expense if compatibility purposes require them. If your project is vast, you might also require an additional grid integration study which could take months but give us great insight into what needs to happen next!

Third Process

Once construction starts, the project manager is mainly in charge. They will be responsible for overseeing all aspects of the installation, including ensuring that delivery and installation go smoothly, checking with government inspectors to ensure everything meets their requirements, and taking care of any last-minute adjustments as they arise.

Fourth Process

Your solar project has reached its final stage of operation! After the following inspection, the project manager will request permission to operate (referred to as a “PTO”) from the utility. The utility will respond with a final check. With their sign-off, you’ll be ready to flip that switch and start producing sustainable energy like never before. But don’t forget there is still work left for your team – after all this time invested in planning and building out your system, they want things running smoothly now more than ever! So, for just two weeks post turn on the day, our experts are by your side, making sure everything works so you can focus on what matters most: taking care of business while being environmentally friendly.
