Site Visit - Solar Panel Installation

Solar energy panels are quickly becoming an alternative renewable energy source for residential and commercial buildings alike. But before you can install solar panels, there are several critical tasks that must be completed prior to installation. And during the process, certain projects that you may not necessarily think of as solar related will take place. This page looks at what typically occurs when a solar project is being implemented.

There are five main steps for a solar panel installation that most your selected solar contracting company will likely follow: Engineering site investigation. Documentation and permitting. Ordering solar equipment.

The second step in solar panel installation is the inspection of your site. Your project coordinator will survey the area for electrical and ventilation sources, water availability and soil quality. They will also inspect the potential solar access points and check for underground caves or other obstacles that could interfere with the efficiency of your photovoltaic panels. This pre-installation survey is essential to the success of your project and the safety of your residential solar panels. Your contractor can provide further information regarding soil conditions and other obstacles you might run into during the installation process. Learn more about solar panel installation here:

The third step in the solar panel installation process is the ordering of equipment. Depending on the complexity of your project, your solar contracting company may need to order, design and test solar equipment before installation begins. You'll want to choose the right equipment for your needs; solar PV panels will produce varying amounts of power depending on the amount of sunlight received. Your solar panel installation company should be able to help you determine exactly which equipment you need based on your location.

The fourth and final step in the solar panel installation process is a site visit by your solar company representative. You'll need to visit the site at least once during the entire time your system is being installed. During the visit, your solar contractor will check the site for any potential hazards that could pose a hazard during installation, and they'll survey the site for easy access to the solar installation site. Before leaving your site visit, your solar company representative should verify that all of the necessary permits are in place and working. Permits are required for every construction project, and this includes solar installation as well.

The whole solar panel installation process can be completed on site in one day if you schedule your installer well in advance. You should make arrangements to meet with your installer on the scheduled date, so he/she has plenty of time to perform all of the necessary actions and complete the job efficiently. If your installer doesn't show up on time, you might find yourself having to deal with problems that could have been avoided. If your installer leaves the site too early, he/she may not even be on site long enough to perform all of the necessary tasks that must be done to properly install your solar panels and make sure everything is done right.
