Solar Panel Installation Preparation Tips

Solar Panel Installation Port OrangeAre you ready to switch to solar? More often than not, it’s as easy as calling your preferred solar contractor so they can assist you throughout the process. However, wouldn’t it be better if you knew more about solar panel installation and how you can prepare your home for it?

It’s a great decision to finally make the move to solar. Soon enough, you will enjoy energy savings and a more environment-friendly source of power for your property. While the contractor you’re working with can do all the work for you, it would be nice if you’re well-informed and involved throughout the process. 

You can start by preparing your property for solar panel installation. Here are some tips you can keep in mind.

1. Take note of your current energy consumption.

Aside from having a basis for comparison to know how much savings you’re getting with your solar installation, taking note of your current energy consumption can also help determine the best size of your solar panel installation.

2. Choose the location for your solar panels.

You have an option to install solar panels on your roof or on the ground. Both locations have their own benefits – now’s the best time to decide where the solar panels should be.

3. Clear the surrounding area.

If there are trees on your property that may obstruct the sun from shining freely on your solar panel installation, call a tree contractor to help trim those trees.

4. Prepare the area where the solar panels will be installed.

If you’re opting for ground-mounted solar panel installation, prepare that area so that it’s clean and level. For roof solar panels, check for cracks, leaks, and other roof damages. Have them repaired and thoroughly inspected prior to installing the solar panels.
