You’re thinking of installing solar panels, which is great, and you want to figure out how long it’ll take to do this. There’s a lot to go over, but the following will help you figure this out.
A professional and experienced crew will take about two to three days to get this done if the job is moderate. DIY solar panels are installed by a small crew, maybe just one person, so it might take longer. Things can take longer if you don’t know what you’re doing. To make this go as quickly as possible, you’ll need a guide, and you’ll need to study that guide before you get started. It might take longer than three days, but you’ll get it done at some point.
The size of the project is going to determine how long it’ll take to install. If you want all of your power to come from your solar panels, then this is going to require a bigger system. The good thing is once you get started, you’ll develop a bit of a rhythm. After that, installing these panels will go much smoother. If you want to shorten your time, then just install the smallest system you can deal with.
If you want to speed up your installation, you are going to have to get more help. Preferably, you can get folks who know about construction so that you don’t have to teach them much. Still, it’s a good idea to have a plan and to make sure everyone knows what they have to do to make this process as easy as possible. Take your time with this part. If your crew doesn’t know anything, you’ll waste more time correcting everyone than getting the job done.
One thing that could mess with your timeline is regulations in your municipality. It’s important that you get all of this together before you install your panels. These folks can delay your projects, especially if you don’t do things as you’re supposed to. An inspector is going to have to come when you’re done installing the panels to make sure everything is okay. Getting this part done early should give you the time to make any necessary changes to your plans.
Okay, sometimes, people don’t think about weather when taking on a project like this. You can’t be one of these folks. You’re going to be outside most of the time, and you’re going to be on the roof. Try to choose the right time to do this installation. You want to choose a time when it won’t rain. According to Unbound Solar, “Be aware of weather conditions which may make rooftop work temporarily unsafe.” Check your weather and make sure you’ve got sunny skies for days, weeks, or a month Just give yourself as much time as possible to get this done..
Installation shouldn’t take more than a week, but there are a few things that could complicate things for you, forcing you to work longer. Hopefully, this guide helps keep the installation process short and sweet.
