How Do I Install a 10kW Solar System?
You can install our DIY 10kW solar system within one or two weekends on your own! GoGreenSolar's DIY kits include industry-leading solar panels, inverters and racking systems to make DIY installation as smooth as possible.
If you've wired an AC outlet before and are comfortable working on your roof, you can install our 10kW solar system easily. If DIY isn't for you, you can hire a local contractor to help with the installation and still save money!
Note: Installing a solar system is beyond the average homeowner's skill set. Each task is simple, but requires working at heights, angles and under the sun with power tools, racking and wiring equipment and glass. You'll also be working with DC voltages above 300VDC and household 240V AC.
5 Steps to Install a DIY 10kW Solar System
You can install your 10kW solar system within 2 days after obtaining a permit from your city or county. Start producing power from the sun in as little as one weekend!
- Apply for a permit: Your city or county's plan review process can take up to 10 days, but once approved, you can get started.
- Install racking and mounting: Locate the rafters on your home and secure the racking system directly.
- Install solar panels and inverters: The inverters tie into the grid through a dedicated breaker in your main service panel.
- Pass the inspection: Once installation is complete, your city or county inspector must conduct an inspection meeting prior to signing off.
- Complete interconnection: Send the final job card, interconnection paperwork and net metering agreement to your utility provider who can grant you Permission to Operate. This can take up to four weeks. Pro-tip: Add on our interconnection service we'll process all the paperwork for you!
Our job is not over until your system is producing clean energy from the sun. We offer you support throughout the whole installation process with manuals, videos, and technical support.Request a quote today.
