Domestic Solar PV installation in 6 easy steps!
Solar PV panels are a great investment for homeowners who want to save money on their electricity bills and reduce their carbon footprint. If you’re interested in installing solar panels on your home, it’s important to understand the process involved. In this blog post, we’ll detail the steps Prosolar team take to ensure that your solar installation is a smooth process from initial enquiry to final installation.
Step 1: Call the Prosolar team!
Before installing panels in your home, you will need to call the Prosolar team to figure out the best solution for your home. Our friendly customer service representatives will ask you contact details and some information on your property, your electricity consumption and requirements. This information will help us to determine how many solar panels you need to install.
Step 2: Find a Suitable Location
The next step our design team will take is to find a suitable location for your solar panels. Ideally, you want a spot that receives a lot of sunlight throughout the day. Your roof is usually the best location, but if you don’t have a suitable roof, you can install ground-mounted solar panels.
Step 3: Install the Solar PV Mounting System
The mounting system is what holds your solar panels in place. Our installation team will need to install this system on your roof or on the ground. The type of mounting system you need will depend on the type of roof you have and the location of your solar panels.
Step 4: Install the Inverter
The inverter is the device that converts the DC power generated by your solar panels into AC power that you can use in your home. We will need to install the inverter near your electrical panel.
Step 5: Install the Solar Panels
Now it’s time to install the solar panels. We will need to connect the panels to the mounting system and to the inverter. Our installation team is highly skilled at this and knowledgeable on requirements of different manufacturers.
Step 6: Connect to the Grid
Finally, we will need to connect your solar panels to the grid. Once your solar panels are connected to the grid, you’ll start generating electricity and you can start saving money on your electricity bills. In fact, as of 2022, it is possible to sell excess energy back to the grid!
In conclusion, installing solar PV panels is a great way to save money on your electricity bills and reduce your carbon footprint. With the right planning and installation, you can start generating your own clean energy and contribute to a more sustainable future.
