Once you’ve signed a contract and decided how to pay for your solar panel system, your hard work is done! Time to sit back, relax, and watch your solar company install the panels on your roof. Before installation day, your installer will begin submitting the paperwork required for installation and interconnection to the grid and for applicable incentives.

On the day of your installation, you can expect 5-10 employees of your solar company to be onsite, ranging from certified electricians who do all of the electrical work to the solar panel installers who are up on your roof attaching the panels and installing other equipment like your solar inverters. Most home installations take just 1-3 days to complete. 

After your installation, you’ll need approval for any incentives and permission to operate (PTO) from your utility before your installer can turn on your system. PTO can take anywhere from a few weeks to a few months; typically, your utility company will send a representative to your house to examine your system and install or update your meter so they can track the solar energy you send to the grid. Once they’ve completed PTO, you’ll receive official documentation that you can officially turn your solar panel system on for electricity generation!

That’s it. You have solar panels and are ready to enjoy decades of free, solar-powered electricity!
