Installation Process in Connecticut

Site Assessment

Before installing solar panels, it is necessary to conduct a site assessment to determine eligibility, evaluate the roof's condition and orientation, identify obstructions, assess the optimal panel location, and evaluate any potential shading impact.

Designing and Permitting

Surf Clean Energy provides customized solar panel designs that consider location, shading, and energy requirements based on site assessments. Additionally, the team obtains all necessary permits to comply with relevant legislation and regulations throughout installation.

Inspection and Interconnection

Following the installation of solar panels, they are subject to a thorough assessment to verify their adherence to safety and performance standards. If the evaluation is satisfactory, the solar panel system can be linked to the power grid, enabling the generation of personal electricity.
