From the day of your initial solar panel installation consultation to the day of completion on installing solar panels at your home or business, there are four major steps that must take place. The timeframe to complete those four steps is typically 12-15 weeks, but it can be shorter or longer depending on the size and type of solar panel system, property characteristics (lots of trees, roof slant, roof orientation, etc.), and utility company power connections

    Below are the details of what to expect with a Loess Hills Solar Solutions Council Bluffs solar panel installation.
