The installation process for solar panels typically involves several steps, including a consultation and assessment, design and permitting, installation, and final inspection. The time it takes to complete the process can vary depending on the size and complexity of the installation, but a typical residential installation can be completed in a few days. A commercial installation may take longer.
During the consultation and assessment phase, the solar installer, like ZEN Energy, will evaluate your property and determine the best solar panel system for your needs. They will also provide you with an estimate of the installation cost and expected performance.
Once you have agreed to move forward with the installation, the installer will obtain any necessary permits and begin the installation process. This involves mounting the panels on your roof or on a ground-mounted structure, wiring the panels and connecting them to an inverter and battery storage, if applicable.
Once the installation is complete, the system will undergo a final inspection to ensure it meets all local building and safety codes. The installer will also walk you through the operation of the system and answer any questions you may have.
