Solar Installation Process

Installing a solar power system is a straightforward process, a project taking place on your roof and by your electric panel. Typical installations take 2 to 4 days and will not cause any significant inconvenience to your life or home.

The A1A Solar team was very professional. They left not one thing out of place or any evidence of the work being done. I was so impressed with the courtesy of the staff. They were so good at their jobs and explained everything clearly.” — FL Residential Electric Customer

  1. Initial Onsite Consultation
    We will meet with you to determine your wants and needs, evaluate your roof and energy bills, and then design a system to address your desires. We will also provide financing options and assist with loan pre-approvals. This is a free, no-obligation consultation.
  2. Contracts & Approvals
    Once you decide to move forward, our engineers will review your system’s layout and electrical requirements. We take care of everything else. We will submit the project for local permitting, contacting local utilities and submit an application to your homeowner’s association, as needed. This approval process typically takes a few weeks, and we order your equipment during this period. Once all permits are received and equipment on-hand, we will schedule your installation date.
  3. Installation Day
    Sometime between 8:00 and 9:30 AM, an A1A Solar truck with crew will arrive to begin work. The crew lead will introduce himself, and he will answer any of your questions. Note: Please ensure any items blocking your electric panels are out of the way. Once the last panel is installed, we will turn on your system for testing.[/vc_column_text]
  4. Inspections
    The local authority having jurisdiction (AHJ), usually the city government, will inspect your new system. Afterwards, the utility company will inspect our work as well and request for a new electric meter designed specifically for solar systems.
  5. Meter Replacement
    Within about a week, your utility company will change your meter to one specifically designed to track and record the energy your system will now produce.[/vc_column_text]
  6. Your New Power System
    With your new solar system in place, you can turn it on and start making your own electricity for years and decades to come.
