The 4 Steps of Implementing Commercial Solar

Shannon Higgins

November 2019

Making the decision to switch your business over to clean, affordable solar energy is both wise and very exciting. There are a lot of upsides to producing your own electricity, from improving your bottom line to contributing to a cleaner and more sustainable community. But the process of implementing commercial solar can be overwhelming, especially without adequate prior knowledge gained beforehand. Luckily, a qualified solar installation company will be there to walk you through the entire process and handle the most time-consuming and intricate aspects of your installation for you. While details may very from business to business, the major steps are almost always the same. 

Our good friends at SunPower put together this infographic that gives a great overview of the four key steps for solar-powering your organization. These milestones include reviewing the proposed site, permits, drawings and approvals, construction and commissioning, as well as maintaining and monitoring the  system after it's turned on. 

In addition to designing and installing your system,  a qualified solar installation partner will offer ongoing maintenance packages to ensure your system is operating at peak efficiency long after activation. This is particularly important since modern solar panels have an operating life measured in decades.
