Our process

Our solar installation process

From start to finish, you can experience our solar installation process before going solar. Our process is conducted easily and with transparency to help eliminate surprises along the way.



We want to work together, educate, and learn whether solar is right for you. And if so what system is going to achieve your goals.


Here we layout exactly what equipment you are buying and how much energy you can expect to produce from your solar system. We go over every aspect of the process so you feel confident in your solar investment & installation.


We send our team to inspect, measure, and assess your home to prepare for the installation. We use that data to finalize your design plans and apply for the necessary approvals from both your county and electric company.


Once we have the necessary approvals we will find a day to come out to perform the installation. Once the installation is complete, we will coordinate a day to complete the necessary inspections with your local jurisdiction.


Once all inspections have been completed, your utility company is notified that it is time to program your meter for solar energy. Once that is done the utility will send permission to operate, and you can start using your clean energy right away.


You're producing clean energy to supply power to your home Enjoy every part of your home while helping the planet, and saving money in return. Worry not! We will still be a phone call or text away to help you with anything you need.

industry-leading, complete system warranty.

Making sure you have a great warranty that not only covers the panels, but also any maintenance and repairs that may be needed along your journey is very important. Our warranty covers your complete system installation and equipment.

Power Warranty

Most every panel manufacturer offers a 25 year warranty on power production. Power production warranties are different based on degradation year over year. This is measured as a percentage, so if in year 1 your panels are 100% the warranty guarantees a certain percentage of production year over year with no less than what it states in the warranty in year 25.

Product Warranty

Most every manufacturer offers a warranty on their product. These warranties can range from 5 to 25 years. These warranties cover the hardware involved such as panels, inverter, racking, and monitoring. The length of the warranty on these different products is based on the manufacturer and typically corresponds with the quality of the product.

Labor Warranty

Not all manufacturers offer labor warranties. This covers the cost of labor in the event a power or product warranty is needed. It is important to chose a manufacturer that stands behind their product by offering a labor warranty so that you don't have unforeseen costs down the road.

frequently asked questions


what should I Look Out For When Talking To Other Companies?

When you talk to other solar companies there are a few things that could be red flags. Steer clear of high-pressure sales tactics and savings that seem too good to be true. Every jurisdiction and home is different so speaking to someone knowledgeable that knows the area and has taken a good look at your home is very important. Research the company, read reviews, and get multiple quotes to make sure you know what you are buying and making a good value investment. Is the company local? Are they doing their own work? These are questions you should be asking.

Does Your Utility Offer A Good Solar Program?

Not every utility offers a favorable solar program, but some of them do. Just because you have a utility that may not have the most desirable program doesn't mean solar isn't an option. We take pride in designing systems that can take advantage of the complexities of a utility program and benefit you.

Will I Save Money Going Solar?

As you generate your own electricity from the sun, going solar will save you money on your electricity cost if it's designed and installed correctly. The amount of money you save month to month or annually will be determined by a variety of factors, including, your current cost for electricity, your location, and the amount of sunlight you receive. Utility rates never go down so the longer you own your solar system the more money you are going to save.

What Are The Incentives Of Going Solar?

Depending on where you live, the incentives for going solar can be different. Currently there is a federal tax credit of 30% which is a non-refundable tax credit meaning you have to have tax liability to take advantage. The only local rebates or incentives we have in the Carolinas is the South Carolina state tax credit of 25%. Non-financial incentives are also a factor you should take into account. Energy independence, environmental, and having clean energy to charge that EV.

How Much Does Solar Cost?

Solar costs vary based on things like how much energy you need, the size of the solar system, the complexity of the project, and the quality of equipment that will be installed. There is no set answer for one person, we all use energy differently and have different goals. Quality, Service, and Price equals cost.

How Long Do Solar Panels Last?

Solar panels actually have a longer life than you'd think. Typically a panel has a useful life of 40-50 years with a 25 year power production warranty. It's important to keep in mind that a solar panel's actual life span will depend on the quality of the equipment and how well it's installed.

How Many Solar Panels Do I Need?

The answer to this is going to be determined by how much energy you use, how much useable space you have on your roof, the amount of solar access you have, and your utility program. Every home will be different in regards to how it is insulated, how many people are living in it, and how it uses gas versus electricity.

How Long Does A Solar Installation Take?

Depending on the size and complexity of the system the physical install should only take one to three days. However, before a physical install can happen there are important milestones that must take place. The entire process usually takes 6-12 weeks. Often times the largest delay in the process is after the installation takes place and the system has to be inspected by your county or city before they can notify the utility company. If something isn't done right and the system can't pass inspection, corrections will need to be made and strong relationships and knowledge of different jurisdictions can be a make or break on how quickly you can turn your system on after it's installed.
