The Process of Going Solar

Going solar is so quick and easy, it may actually surprise you.

1. Your Free Quote

It all starts with a free, no-obligation quote from SolarCorp, which can be done completely online and with no site visit. Of course, if you prefer to meet in-person you can request a free consultation first.

If you choose the online option, your quote and savings estimate will be ready within just 24 hours.

2. Consultation

After receiving your quote, it’s time to schedule a no-obligation consultation to talk about your system, and choose a tentative installation date. During this time a personal solar concierge will be assigned to you and be available to assist with any questions or concerns you may have.

Each consultation is different. If you know you want to go solar, it can take just one visit to collect the necessary permit signatures and complete your solar contract, however if you want more time you can schedule your signing on a date after the initial consultation that is convenient to you.

3. Permits are Submitted

The professional team from SolarCorp will help you complete and submit all necessary permit and legal applications to your local government and utility.

4. Installation

After the permits have been approved (waiting for this is by far the longest part of the entire process) it’s time to install your system. Your solar concierge will help you choose a date for installation that is convenient to you and your schedule, however, it is not necessary that you are home for the install to take place, depending on your system.

Installation of the average residential rooftop system generally takes less than one day.

5. Power On

After a final inspection by the government/utility your system can be turned on. Now you simply sit back, relax, and enjoy your solar savings.
