Solar Installation Process

At Core Energy Solar we go above and beyond to satisfy our customers, taking care of every step for you, and making going solar hassle and headache-free! 

Once you have decided to go solar, you have about a month or two (tops) to plan out where you will spend the hundreds of dollars you will save on your electricity bill! No joke! It is that easy because with Core Energy going solar is that simple! So while you are working out your dream bucket list, we will be working hard on the following steps to get those shiny panels on your roof and those dollars back in your pocket:

  1. Design and Engineering (3 days)
    Within 3 days of you signing your contract, the next step is the site survey where we inspect your property and note any final details necessary for your design. Once your property has been evaluated, our engineers will add the final specifications to your system. These plans will provide a detailed description of the system that, pending approval, will be installed on your property at the time of installation.
  2. City Permits and Materials (7-14 days)
    Once all the specifications of your design have been confirmed, our Permitting Coordinator will send out your design to the city permitting office for approval. The time this step takes varies as it depends on the city office, but usually takes no longer than 14 days. Our team will be in touch and be giving you updates along the way.In the meantime, we start working on separating the materials and equipment needed for your installation which include:
