How Long Does It Take To Install a PV System

Typical, residential systems take from 2 to 5 days to install. Systems mounted on the ground and systems with batteries are more complex, and may take longer. Most of this time is spent outside of your house, so there is little disturbance to you. Commercial systems take several weeks to over a month to install, depending upon size and type of installation.

Do I Need To Clean The Solar Panels Periodically?

Most of our customers do not clean their panels. In most areas of the country, there will be sufficient rain to clean the panels. However, if you are in a dusty area (near a busy dirt road, a very urban area, etc…) you may see a performance boost from cleaning the panels monthly. If necessary, a hose stream is usually sufficient for cleaning. Do not walk on or over the panels to clean them. Do not use metal, hard, or abrasive methods for cleaning. Do not spray water on the panels when they are very hot.

Do I Need To Install a New Roof Before The Solar Panels Are Installed?

Solar panels will last many years, (over 25). Because of this, we want the roof to be in decent condition, as it does not make sense to remove and reinstall the panels after only a few years. However, after the panels are in place, they will greatly reduce the wear on the roof by blocking ultraviolet rays, keeping most snow and ice off the roof, and keeping anything from hitting the roof. Most installations do not require a new roof prior to PV installation.
