At Paradise Energy Solutions, we simplify your transition to solar panels with a clear, six-step process. Our team expertly guides you through each phase, ensuring a seamless and efficient journey. While each residential and commercial solar installation is unique, our approach is designed to provide a smooth experience tailored to your specific needs. This is what sets the Paradise Energy experience apart.

The following process is a typical project timeline for a solar energy installation at Paradise Energy Solutions. Each installer’s process will be different.


1. Solar Evaluation

An appointment will be set up with your local consultant to discuss your questions and objectives for going solar. Some of the things that will be discussed and gathered during this appointment include:

  • Roof mount vs. ground mount - which is best for you?
  • How much of your energy consumption will solar energy cover?
  • Your electric bill—this will help us size your system and determine the payback.
  • Takeaway: We will take pictures of your existing breaker panel box, transformer, and other items so that the estimating team can provide an accurate quote.

2. Detailed Quote

Within 2-3 business days of your initial meeting,  your consultant will deliver a detailed quote that is tailored to your situation. The proposal will include:

  • An aerial picture of what your system will look like
  • The installation price, payback, ROI, and a year-by-year cash flow.
  • The environmental impact of your solar energy system.
  • Available Incentives

3. Signed Contract

After you review the quote and decide to proceed with the project, a project manager will be assigned to you. They will meet with you to discuss the "nuts and bolts" and gather any final information we need to design your system, get the appropriate permits and approvals, and move your installation closer to being shovel-ready. 


4. Paperwork and Permits

Most projects will have 2-4 months (this can vary depending on the type of system, size, and your location) between the signed contract and the start of the installation process. During this time we will take care of all the paperwork for the required permits, order materials, and finalize the construction details. Your project manager will be in contact with you throughout this entire time period.

5. Construction Begins

The project manager will work closely with the job site foreman to make sure construction is smooth and not disruptive in any way. Both team members will give you consistent updates to make sure you know what's happening at each step of the project.

Construction can take anywhere from a couple of days to several weeks, depending on the project size and weather conditions.

6. Flip The Switch Party

This step is the most fun! As soon as construction is complete and all the proper permissions have been granted, we will celebrate by having you flip the switch to energize your system. Let the solar savings begin!
