Step 2: Home evaluation and roof test:

Next is your solar company will send an engineer to your home to evaluate whether your house is appropriate for solar power at the same time they determine the best solar panels, inverter, racking and other components. Solar engineer will be able to determine the best location to mount the hardware that runs your system at some stage in the inspection, the installer will examine your home roof to make sure that the installation is code compliant and could suggest enhancements if required. If roof is perfect, then the solar panel installation company will take a seat down with you and verify how effective you want your system to be.

In recent times, solar installations can be completed as quickly as in one to 3 days, relying on the size of the system. After the solar panels are attached to the roof and the related electrical wiring and monitoring device is established. Finally, inverter(s) are connected to panels to convert direct current (DC) energy into the alternating current (AC) energy used in homes and on the electric grid.
