Installation

Solar Installation Equipment and Process

Most installations can be completed in 1-2 days, depending on the size and scope of the installation. The installation team will typically arrive between 7:00 and 11:00 am and greet you on arrival and walk you through the installation process. You (or someone 18 or older) will need to be home for the full installation. 

During the Installation

  • Once the installation begins, no action is required from you.
  • A Palmetto Build Partner may need access to your attic throughout the installation.
  • In some areas, we may need to briefly cut off your power in order to install various pieces of electrical equipment. This period, if applicable, is typically very brief. 

Installation Equipment 

  • There are various pieces of equipment required for a solar energy system to safely and efficiently generate electricity for your home.
  • The solar panels are typically attached to your roof where they capture the energy from the sun and generate an electric current. 
  • The inverter converts the power produced by your panels into usable electricity for your home, and is typically installed by your electricity meter.
  • The AC disconnect is a small rectangular box with an on/off lever that allows alternating current or AC electricity to flow between your inverter and the grid. It is typically installed by your electricity meter. 
  • Your Build Partner will also use mounting and wiring hardware to attach the solar panels to the roof and connect the various components.

After the Installation

  • Once the installation is complete and before leaving your home, the installation crew will check in with you to answer questions, discuss next steps, and ensure the construction area is clear of all trash and equipment.
  • You may receive a brief, 30 second survey to your mobile phone in the days following installation. We’d love to hear your feedback!
