Solar Panel Installation

The GPS solar panel installation process iscompletely hands off for you. All you have to do is be available to answer any questions we may have during the process and provide us with any documentation we may need. You also will be able to be involved with all steps of the process if you choose to do so.

Scheduling Your Installation

You and your Energy Consultant will be able to schedule an installation date for your solar panels once your system design is finalized and we have the necessary approvals to move forward with your project. 

GPS may need to reschedule your installation if there is poor weather on your installation date. We will contact you to find another suitable time if a reschedule is required.

Preparing for Installation

  • Obtain approval from your Homeowner’s Association (HOA) if you are part of one.

  • Ensure no other contractors or workers are on-site during your solar installation. We cannot start the installation if other workers are on site.

  • Clear cars from your driveway and any breakable objects from your yard. Provide safe access to your electrical panel.

  • Contact GPS if work has been done to your home since you ordered your system.

  • Ensure someone 18 years or older is home for the first hour of installation.

  • Please keep any pets away from the installation area for their safety.

 

What to Expect on Installation Day

On installation day, the installation crew will arrive on your property and the Crew Lead will greet you before the installation team places safety cones and caution tape around your home. Ladders will be placed in key areas so the crew can quickly access your roof and begin the installation process.

Most installations are completed within one day, while larger or more complex systems can take two or more days. Solar-only installations typically require the power to be out for 1-3 hours. Installations involving a Battery usually require the power to be shut off as well.

If any of your electrical equipment is inside of your home or if any equipment will be installed inside, we will need someone 18 years or older to be home for the duration of the installation.

What to Expect After Installation

Once your installation is complete, you will receive an email with all of the necessary information regarding your monitoring app and instructions for the system. GPS will work with your local utility and state agencies to receive approval to turn on your system.
