Here’s how POWERHOME SOLAR’s simple 3-step solar installation process works:


Contact The Team

Start by filling out a form online for a free quote. One of our solar experts will reach out to you shortly after to discuss your solar power opportunities. We’ll evaluate your home and property for qualities such as shade cover, making sure solar panels would be a good fit for your home. If you qualify, we’ll schedule a free in-home consultation.


In-Home Consultation

One of our experienced consultants will travel to your property to further evaluate your home. We’ll also take your electric bills into account when deciding what size solar system will work best for you. From this, we’ll deliver a custom proposal created for your home’s unique energy needs. Once you sign on to the proposal, it’s time for us to get to work preparing for installation.


Solar Installation

On installation day, our installation team will arrive promptly at your home to carefully install your solar panels. We’ll work quickly but take care to ensure there’s no damage to your roof or home. The installation process should only take a day or two. Once installation is complete, we’ll test out your system and clean up our workspace. Following a passed inspection, all that’s left is your utility provider swapping out your meter so you can enjoy the potential savings!

Solar Panel Installation FAQs

How much does it cost to install solar panels in Raleigh?

POWERHOME’s solar panel systems are not one size fits all. We create custom solar systems for each customer’s unique energy needs. As such, it’s hard to give an estimate of what your solar panel installation could cost. However, generally the price will depend on your home’s current energy needs, what direction your home faces and how much sunlight your roof receives in addition to other such factors.

Can I install solar panels myself?

It’s possible to do, but we do not recommend it. POWERHOME SOLAR’s qualified installation teams have the experience needed to ensure your panels are installed properly and in the best position to gather sunlight.

How long does it take to install solar panels?

Our installation team only takes a day or two to have your solar panels up and running. It’s a quick process!

Do I need permission to install solar panels in Raleigh?

Yes, some permits are required to install solar panels. It’s likely your local government has some requirements in place before installation occurs. POWERHOME SOLAR’s experts will help you with the majority of the permits as part of the installation process.

Does installing solar panels void your roof warranty?

In nearly all cases, your roof warranty should remain intact. As long as the installation team did their job right (and our teams are experts), you shouldn’t have any problems with your roof’s warranty. We recommend that you should always double-check with your roof’s manufacturer or installer to confirm.

What permits do I need to install solar panels in Raleigh?

Permits needed to install solar panels vary by your own local government’s mandates. Your local government and local utility companies likely have specific requirements in place to satisfy local building and electrical codes. As a general rule, you can expect to have to file for a building permit, an electrical permit and possibly a solar photovoltaic (PV) permit.

Can my HOA stop me from installing solar panels in Raleigh?

This varies by neighborhood. However, you can expect to face some pushback from your HOA if your solar panels will face public spaces, such as an HOA-maintained park or road. POWERHOME SOLAR will work with you to ensure that your solar panels are up to code and satisfy HOA requirements if at all possible!

Can solar panels be installed on a metal roof?

Absolutely! Metal roofs offer a stable surface on which to install solar panels, so there should be no problem in having both.
