Home Solar System Inspections
While solar panel installation is relatively easy, there’s a lot of red tape surrounding it. Because residential solar systems connect to the grid and are often installed on roofs, inspections and permits are required to ensure safe installation and use of solar energy. Homeowners often find the inspection process daunting, but with Solar Fix it’s easy. If you’re ready to start the solar installation process with your first solar panel inspection, contact the Solar Fix pros to get started.
What is a solar inspection, exactly?
Let’s break down the solar inspection process into two inspections, one before and one after installation. First, homeowners need an inspection of their home’s electrical system to make sure it can accommodate the addition of a solar system. Most residential solar systems are installed on the roof of the home to save space on the ground. If this is the case, the roof must also be inspected to avoid structural problems and safety hazards associated with the weight of the solar panels.
Once the first inspection is passed, the solar system installation can begin. After the system is installed, it must be inspected again by the local government’s building department to ensure that everything is up to code and safe for use. Until this second inspection occurs, homeowners can’t turn their systems on because most utility companies require documentation of inspection before allowing solar systems to connect to the grid.
