Tips for hiring a qualified installer
Once you have decided to install a solar energy system— after you’ve made your home or business energy efficient and you’ve done your solar homework—you will need to select a solar installer and plan the installation.
The Minnesota Department of Commerce highly recommends that consumers take their time and exercise due diligence when hiring a qualified solar installer, because proper installation requires many considerations and attention to detail to ensure a safe, productive, and long-lasting system.
It’s a good idea to meet with and get bids from at least two or three installers before settling on one. The complexities of sizing, siting, purchasing, installing, permitting, and interconnecting a solar electric system are beyond the scope of what most homeowners are able to do.
