Rough Estimate: To start out we look at your property from google maps to give you a rough estimate. This will be so you can get a general idea of what our prices are for the type of solar PV system you are looking for. Quick and easy as we say. Once we get your approval, then we proceed to to the next step.
Solar Consultation: We offer free, no-obligation solar consultations. We will come to your property and measure your roof space, take pictures, look in your attic, perform a shade analysis with a solar pathfinder, and analyze the best way to interconnect your house with solar. During these you can meet us and ask any and all solar questions you may have.
Proposal: During this step we will design a proposed system with the information we collected at the consultation. Then we will write up an official proposal for you that has all the information about your system and financial payback. We will show you every reason for WHY it is designed as such so no questions are left unanswered. Then you are given time to think your options through and decide whether solar is right for you.
Contract: If you accept the proposal, we will walk you through financing options and terms of your contract. Once you sign the construction contract and pay a down payment, then we can schedule your installation.
Permits and Interconnection Applications: Prior to installation, we’ll work to get all necessary permissions from your utility company and local government. We also do all the paperwork involved for rewards programs for solar if applicable and interconnection agreements between you and your utility. This process may take the longest period of time.
Installation: Once we have all approvals for interconnection and permitting, The Sisu Solar team will install your system. This will be done with safety in mind. We will not rush to ensure we make a top-quality system that will say up for over 30 years.
Inspections/Commissioning: After your solar is up. It cannot be turned on right away. The system will need to be inspected by both the local government and the electrical utility. Once these are done, then finally your system will be able to be turned on!
Maintenance: No maintenance is necessarily required for these systems. The solar will passively generate electricity without any moving parts. You will have the ability to monitor your solar panels from your computer to see how much electricity they are generating. The one optional bit of maintenance that you can do is raking the snow off the solar panels in the winter. Of course if something does happen, Sisu Solar will be happy to come back out to help get things running smoothly.
OPPORTUNITY: Now's the Time
Sisu Solar is a small company consisting of just a couple members. We have very little overhead compared to bigger solar installers in the area. We may not shine the brightest when it comes to advertising, marketing, and sales, but when it comes to setting people up with solar, we can install for a low reasonable price that beats out the competition.
The only better time to install solar was last year! There has never been a better time to buy solar. When including the increased value of your home, a solar investment is better than the average stock investment. See our blog post about this. The honest truth about investing in solar is that you are putting your money against electricity prices. The more they end up increasing, the more you will save. Trends have energy prices going up 3% every year, but given the climate crisis that may skyrocket in the coming years.
