Navigating Solar Panel Installation: What to Expect During the Process

Installing a solar PV system on your roof is an exciting step towards embracing renewable energy. Here’s what you can expect during the installation process:


1. Site Assessment and Planning

Once we receive your inquiry with your postal code (a roof plan will be of great help), one of our experienced sales representatives will prepare a preliminary proposal for you. Our sales representative and/or site manager will visit your home to conduct a site assessment if needed to confirm some details like number of panels and inverter location. We’ll check the condition of your roof, its orientation, angle, and any shading from trees or buildings that might affect the performance of the solar panels. This assessment helps in designing a system that fits your energy needs and maximises sunlight exposure.


2. Design and Permits

Based on the assessment, we may make changes to the design of the proposed solar PV system tailored for your home. Once you approve the design, our admin will handle the necessary permits and paperwork required, such as AMI meter change, SP submission, etc. This step can take some time, from 6 – 12 weeks, depending on SP progress. 


3. Installation

The actual installation begins at your convenience and our availability. This usually takes a few days to complete depending on your system size. Our workers will need to hook up their PPE for safety, then install the special brackets to mount the solar panels on your roof. These brackets ensure the panels are securely attached. 


4. Wiring and Connection

With the panels in place, the next step is wiring them together and connecting them to an inverter, which converts the direct current (DC) electricity generated by the panels into alternating current (AC) electricity used in your home. The system will also be connected to your home’s electrical panel and to the public grid.


5. Inspection and Commissioning

Once installation is complete, our appointed LEW and SP officer will review the system to ensure it meets all safety and performance standards. After passing inspection, your solar PV system will be officially commissioned, meaning it’s ready to generate electricity for your usages and sell back the excess to the SP grid. We will then show you how to download the inverter app and login to monitor the system’s performance. We will prepare a handover document with detailed products datasheet, reports and simple troubleshooting methods. 




After installation, it’s important to maintain your system to ensure it operates efficiently. Fortunately, solar PV systems require minimal maintenance. Regular checks on the panels and inverters and cleaning of the panels to remove dust, leaves, or bird droppings are typically all that’s needed.


Installing a solar PV system is a straightforward process when handled by professionals. Let Rezeca help you through this process. It not only contributes to a cleaner environment but can also reduce your electricity bills significantly in the long run.
