Commercial Solar Panel Installation Process
This is the first step of every commercial solar panel installation. The initial evaluation will inform the design of the solar panel system and the solar panel installation. Site evaluation includes:
- Legal reviews
- Gathering permits
- Determining where and how the system will connect to the grid
- Shade analysis
- Structural evaluation
- Gather Utility Data
- Geological and topographical surveys
After the initial evaluation is completed and all necessary permits and paperwork are completed, Seal Solar will design the perfect solar system for your business. Once the plans are finalized, we’ll provide you with a copy that illustrates how the panels will be arranged and how construction will be executed.
Next is the solar panel installation. The timeline for your construction will vary depending on the size of the system and the complexity of the project. Generally speaking, smaller projects may take 2-3 weeks to complete. Major construction may take a few months. We’ll work with you to create a schedule of minimal disruption so you can continue business as usual. We stay in contact throughout the process, from obtaining utility bills to switching on your system!
Once your system is complete and running correctly, the utility company and city, if applicable, will inspect your system and approve it for connection. Once that happens (usually within a week to a month depending on the speed of your local government), you will be operating and producing clean energy!
What types of commercial buildings can be solar-powered?
Our rooftop commercial solar systems can be installed on most industrial, warehouse, commercial, retail, and agricultural buildings. We’ll have a structural engineer come inspect the facility and roof closely before finalizing a system plan. We also offer ground-mounted and carport systems for our commercial clients depending on the size of your future system and the space available at your facility.
Are rebates and incentives guaranteed?
States may change their rebate and incentive programs at any time, so there is no guarantee. However, Seal Solar is happy to evaluate and help you apply for any available grant, rebate, or incentive program for which your business qualifies at the time of construction. If approved, you will be grandfathered in for 20 years if net metering laws change after signing.
What happens to the excess energy I collect?
Depending on where you live and how your system is built, you may be able to store the power by using batteries for emergency backup power or sell it back to the grid to offset your electricity costs.
Commercial Solar Panel Backup
Seal Solar is proud to offer Tesla Powerwall for commercial properties. We can help you create a scalable system that predicts energy patterns, optimizes battery dispatch, and increases consumption of your on-site solar to give you the most efficient and cost-effective solution possible. Our certified Tesla Powerwall team will install your battery(ies).
The Seal Solar Approach
While there are a variety of different ways to approach a solar install, we stick to our own specific process here at Seal Solar. We believe that the trick is to reduce energy consumption as much as possible before installing solar equipment. Why? Imagine if you were to simply place solar panels on your business without first taking a closer look at electric performance. If there are inefficiencies occurring, your solar panels will function merely to offset those issues and will not be able to truly perform their job properly.
