You’ve decided to go solar … now what?

Learn how A1A Solar makes the installation process a breeze

You know you want to switch to solar-powered energy; however, you don’t know what’s in store for the installation process. The northeast Florida team at A1A Solar will make the process painless and ease any anxieties you may have. A1A Solar follows six simple steps to ensure your home or business is set up for success.

Step 1: Initial on-site consultation
The A1A Solar team will meet you at the location of the proposed installation (note that this consultation is completely free of charge). The team will evaluate the space, go over your current energy bills, and design a system that specifically meets every need in order to get your desired outcome. Once you decide to go forward, A1A Solar will assist with financing options.

Step 2: Contracts and approvals
The engineers at A1A Solar will look over the space to see what requirements are necessary for installation. A1A Solar will submit all of the permitting and utility licenses that you need, along with an application to your HOA, if necessary. A1A Solar will then gather all equipment for your personalized project over the next few weeks, while the permitting and licensing process takes place. Once the A1A Solar team receives all the required parts and approval on licenses, they will schedule your installation.

Step 3: Installation day
Installation day will start between 8 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. The crew leader will introduce the team and answer any last-minute questions you may have. At this time, it’s important to note that there should be no items blocking your electric panel, so the crew can test your system after installation.

Step 4: Inspections
Most likely, a city inspector will swing by shortly after installation day to inspect the new system, ensuring that it aligns with all codes and regulations. After the city inspections are complete, your utility provider will do an inspection and make a request for a new electric meter specifically for your solar system.

Step 5: Meter replacement
Typically, within a week of the inspection, your utility company will install an electric meter that tracks the performance of the solar energy system.

Step 6: Your new power system
Once you have your new meter, the installation process has come to an end, and you can turn on your system! Now’s the time to enjoy your new solar system, save money, and be energy efficient for the coming years.
