Installing solar panels on premises can be a cost-effective way to harness renewable energy and reduce your electricity bills. However, it's important to approach this task with caution, as improper installation can lead to safety hazards and decreased efficiency of solar rooftop system. Here's a general overview of the steps involved in a solar panel installation from EPC Company:

Guidance for Solar Panel Installation

Research and Planning:

  • First of all, get to know about solar panel technology, energy production, and its safety considerations.
  • Then have to determine the energy consumption of home to understand how many panels you required.

Permits and Regulation:

  • Check local DISCOM regulations and obtain any necessary permits before starting the installation.
  • Some areas may have building codes, zoning laws, or Society guidelines that beneficiary need to adhere to.

Equipment and Supplies:

  • Required to purchase high-quality solar panels, mounting hardware, inverters, wiring, and other necessary components.
  • Make sure to use proper tools for the installation, such as drills, wrenches, and safety equipment including safety shoes and glasses.

Location and Orientation:

  • Required to find the best location for solar panels for premises. Ideally, this should be a spot with maximum sunlight exposure throughout the day.
  • The panels should typically be installed facing south (in the Northern Hemisphere) to capture the most sunlight.

Roof Inspection and Preparation:

  • Inspect roof's condition to ensure it can support the weight of the solar rooftop system.
  • Repair any damage or make necessary reinforcements to the roof before installing the panels, if required any.

Mounting the Panels:

  • Properly install the mounting hardware according to the manufacturer's instructions and manuals.
  • Install the solar rooftop system to the best and proper aligned position.
Solar Panel Installation

Electrical Wiring:

  • Connect all the panels in series or parallel to create the desired voltage and current configuration for better generation.
  • Install the wiring from the panels to the inverter and from the inverter to home's electrical panel.

Inverter Installation:

  • Fix the inverter in a location that's well-ventilated and easily accessible for maintenance and to check generation.
  • Connect the inverter to the solar panels and home's electrical system with suitable MCBs.

Safety Precautions:

  • Work safely by wearing appropriate protective gear, such as gloves and safety glasses while maintenance.
  • Turn off home's electrical power and gas connection before making any electrical connections of home.

Testing and Inspections:

  • After the completion of installation, thoroughly test the system to ensure its producing electricity enough and correctly.
  • If the person isn’t experienced with electrical systems, consider hiring a professional to inspect your installation for testing.

Maintenance and Monitoring:

  • Regularly clean the solar panels to ensure optimal energy production of installed solar rooftop.
  • Monitor your system's performance to catch any issues early via online monitoring application.

Grid Connection and Net Metering:

  • If system is connected to the grid, work with DISCOM Company to set up net metering, which allows beneficiary to earn credits for excess energy the system produces.

Final Documentation:

  • Keep complete records of all permits of registration, receipts of payments, and documentation related to the installation for future reference.
