Solar Installation Checklist

From first call to install, know what happens during each stage of a solar installation.

Step 1: Evaluation of Needs

Begin by thinking about what you want from your solar system, whether it be to save money, save the environment, or both. When you’re ready, contact expert solar installers in California, and they will consult with you in person or virtually about what you need based on prior power usage. No question about solar installation in the Bay Area is a dumb question, so ask away!

Step 2: Site Survey

California solar power installers will visit your site and determine what’s needed to maximize your solar panel system based on the site itself. Our California solar installers will analyze your roof, gather information, and relay it back to our design team. This step allows us to design a solar energy system custom to your site to make your solar installation in the Bay Area as optimal as possible!

Step 3: A Custom System Design

After evaluation and surveying, a good solar installer in California will design a system truly tailored to your needs. The goal is to give you the best design possible to collect energy and ultimately shrink your energy bill. After all, solar installation in the Bay Area takes advantage of the great weather to save you money!
