The ABC Solar Installation Team Checklist

The ABC Solar team is trained to look at each property and identify key standard items that are required in system design. The purpose of a thorough site visit is to accurately build a system that gets built to original design. This helps every stakeholder in the process feel comfortable, saves time and money.

Our first checks are summarized as roof integrity and distance verification. We check for spacing of and size of the rafters. Most roofs are 16 inch on center with 2” x 8” timber. These are perfect for solar as they need no structural improvements.

On the ground we are concerned about the distance from the proposed solar array to the main panel and our grid-tie connection point. We can be far, but the wire size has to be right to carry the current without significant loss.

Conduit Location and Length:
-Array to Inverter ________ft
-Inverter to Service Panel ________ft

This is key to size the wire to be ready for the amps and voltage of the solar panel array. Wire sizing tables that check temperature, amps and distance are used for this purpose.
