Info for Installers New to Solar

If you are new to solar there is a small learning curve to get through on your first installation. United Electric is here to help, so please don’t hesitate to contact us at any time.

Verify the Roof

It is critical to keep in mind that if UE helps you with a roof layout, we are doing this with remote images based on Google Earth. These images allow us to pull roof dimensions to determine how much solar will fit on the roof. These images are good but not fallible so we recommend that before you place an order that you measure the roof to verify the solar proposed will fit without issue.

Also before starting your installation work with your, Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) to verify your solar system design. The National Electrical Codes (NEC) are changing often and are modified by the AHJ. Some key points to review are requirements for rapid shut down and roof access borders & isles around the array.

Interconnection Paperwork

Prior to starting your solar installation you have to let the utility know you want to install solar at a location.  The utilities will have an interconnection application to fill out. Once approved they will issue you a letter giving permission to install the solar system.  Once installed and the system has passed inspection there is a second part to the application that is completed to allow the utility to change or reprogram the utility meter at the site prior to the solar system being turned on.

After the Installation

The solar system needs to be registered in order for the homeowner or business owner to be able to sell their Solar Renewable Energy Credits (sREC). I would recommend contacting an sREC broker like srectrade.com . They will register and sell the sREC certificates produced by the solar system.
