Let’s Get Started

Professional Solar Panel Installation

Solar panel installation is simpler than you might think. If you choose to work with us, this is the process you can expect:

  1. First, you will set up an appointment with Solar Brothers. We will ask you to provide relevant information to us, including a utility bill.
  2. After reviewing your energy needs and product preferences, we will provide you with an estimate and answer any questions you have.
  3. Next, you will choose your preferred solar panel system.
  4. Our installation crew will complete a site survey and pull permits to ensure your solar system complies with governmental restrictions.
  5. We will order the necessary equipment and install the solar system.
  6. After that, we will have the system inspected and assist with the process of gaining Permission to Operate (PTO) from your utility company.
  7. Turn on your solar system, and enjoy the benefits of solar energy!

Where can solar panels be installed?

Our team can install solar panels on your roof or any permitted structure. We can also set up a ground-mounted solar system or build solar carports. If you have any questions about your location options, please contact us for more information.

How long does the installation process take?

Typically we can install a home solar system less than one month after purchase. A number of factors affect this timeline – the local permitting and inspection processes, the size and type of solar system, the property’s characteristics, your utility company, etc. – but we work hard to ensure that you’re not waiting for long.

Due to their larger scope and a more complex process for permitting and design, commercial solar systems require more time for installation. Typically they take six months from purchase to completion.

Remember that a project’s timeline is very dependent on your local government and how quickly it can issue the necessary permits and inspect your system post-installation. If these government offices are busy, you may need to wait longer than you had hoped. In addition, if your home requires upgrades to support a solar system (such as re-roofing, upgrading your electrical panel, or reinforcing your roof), the process will take longer. The actual installation of the solar equipment is typically the quickest part of the procedure.

DIY Solar Panel Installation

Although most of our customers choose to have us handle their entire solar project, you may wish to complete the installation yourself if you are qualified to do so. With this DIY approach, we will provide the necessary materials and pass the equipment warranties on to you. You will be responsible for handling the labor, permitting, and inspections.

As the installation of solar panels is quite complex and involves valuable equipment, we only recommend a DIY installation for qualified professionals who understand electrical work and some structural engineering.

Although you can’t expect to have solar panels on your property the day after you make your purchase, it doesn’t take long to get a solar system up and running if you choose the right company. At Solar Brothers, we’re committed to helping you access solar power as soon as possible without sacrificing the quality of our services. If you’re in a time crunch, please let us know and we’ll see if we can accommodate your schedule.
