The timeline for a solar panel installation project can vary widely depending on several factors, such as the size and complexity of the system, local permitting requirements, and weather conditions. Yet, a typical timeline with a professional solar installation company could look something like the following:

Typical Solar Panel Installation Timeline

Initial Consultation: 1-2 Weeks

  • Initial contact and scheduling
  • Preliminary discussion about needs, budget, and site feasibility

Site Assessment and Energy Audit: 1 Week

  • On-site visit for a detailed survey of the installation site
  • Conducting an energy audit to assess your energy needs

Design and Planning: 1-2 Weeks

  • Customized system design based on on-site assessment and energy audit
  • Securing necessary permits and approvals

Procurement:  1-2 Weeks

  • Ordering and delivery of solar panels, inverters, and other system components

Installation: 2-3 Days

  • Actual installation of solar panels, inverters, and other equipment
  • Electrical wiring, connection to the grid, and initial system tests

Inspection and Commissioning: 1 Week

  • Local authority inspection for compliance with electrical and building codes
  • System commissioning and final tests to ensure everything is operational

Post-Installation: Ongoing

  • Handover of all warranties, manuals, and other relevant documents
  • Explanation of monitoring system and maintenance schedule

Overall, a residential solar panel installation project could take anywhere from 6 to 10 weeks from initial consultation to system commissioning, while larger commercial projects could take longer.

Grid-tied solar systems, also known as grid-connected systems, are solar installations that are connected to the local utility grid. In British Columbia, grid-tied solar systems are a popular choice because they allow homeowners to generate their own electricity while remaining connected to the grid for times when solar production is insufficient. This setup ensures a reliable and cost-effective energy solution for residents in British Columbia.

We employ monocrystalline solar panels, representing the latest advancements in technology. These panels boast a black-on-black design. MAG Solar ensures you get optimal and sustainable solutions for your energy needs.
