This phase?

It's about maximizing your solar potential, ensuring peace of mind. Through every step, from Site-Survey onwards, we're here to make this investment count for the long run.

You can expect, the surveyor to be be looking to take photos of your circuit breaker, check the roof, potentially the attic, review the meter outside on your home. ( To ensure it is a smart meter, "what does that mean? .. We can already hear you potentially thinking this and all it means is that it reads power not only one direction but both entering as well as exiting the home.

In solar your home will be producing power and any excess unused will be put on the local electrical grid, to help secure the grid, build a credit with net metering on your account in many instances, and yes you guessed it even power your neighbors!
