Most solar panels are installed directly on the roof of the house. Place the brackets four feet apart and on beams, drill holes in the beams, secure the support with steel bolts and seal the surrounding area, attach the solar panel to the bracket and connect the solar panel to the power source. We want to make your journey to solar energy as easy as possible. That's why we only work with MCS accredited solar panel installers.
Once you've installed your solar panels, you can start reaping the benefits of generating your own renewable electricity. In addition, all our work is backed by HIES, the insurance backed by Home Insulation and Energy Systems. The federal solar energy tax credit allows you to deduct 30 percent of the cost of installing a solar energy system from your federal taxes. If you want your panel system to start working right away, be sure to contact the installer to check the progress of your documentation.
Before you can connect your solar panels to the power grid, a representative of your city government must inspect the system and give approval. To show you what you can expect, we've outlined a simple guide on how to set up solar panels for your home. If your installer needs to add an energy meter, this will add a few hours to your solar panel installation. Once the installation of the solar panel is finished, the entire system is connected to the consumer unit that will be located in the fuse box.
If possible, try to install the solar installation in winter, when solar companies aren't as busy. Installing solar panels doesn't happen overnight; there is a process for what must happen before your home uses solar electricity and potentially contributes to the power grid. One of the main things you'll apply for will be state and federal solar incentives, such as the federal ITC, local solar programs, clean energy funding initiatives such as PACE, government rebates, and renewable solar energy (SREC) certificates. With more than 4 million energy customers and thousands of solar panel installations already completed, you're in good hands.
Once you figure out how efficient your home is, the next step should be to find out if solar energy will work for your home and, ultimately, if your home can house solar panels. Applications for solar energy tax relief require that eligible solar power generation system expenses be disclosed. On average, it usually takes between one and three months before your solar panels are connected to the grid and produce energy for your home.
