Site Survey and Design

If you need to make changes to your system, simply contact your SolarX sales representative, and in most cases, they can accommodate your requested changes.
The timeline for completing the design of your solar system after the site survey can vary depending on the complexity of your project. In general, designs can be completed within 24 to 72 hours, but some more complex projects may take up to a week.
SolarX designs your solar system by assessing your previous year’s kilowatt-hour usage, evaluating your future energy needs, and considering the efficiency of your roof. This analysis helps determine the number of solar panels required to offset your energy needs and maximize your savings.
During the site survey, a technician from SolarX will visit your home to take pictures of your roof, utility meters, and main electrical panel. If you have a tile roof, the surveyor may inspect underneath some tiles to assess the quality of the roof. In some cases, accessing the attic may be necessary to gather information about the spacing of rafters. It’s important to note that the site surveyors focus on collecting data and are not responsible for making judgments about the roof or electrical panel’s quality.
Yes, a utility bill is required for every SolarX project. The utility bill is used to verify your energy usage, gather necessary information for your interconnection application with your utility provider, and validate your address. It’s preferable to provide a recent utility bill for accurate assessment.
After the site survey, you will receive a final copy of your solar system design. Your SolarX sales representative can provide you with a copy of your sales proposal, which includes all the financing and payment details related to your project.
In some cases, SolarX may utilize the north-facing side of your roof to maximize the energy production from your solar system. Although this is uncommon, it can be economically beneficial in certain situations.
With SolarX, a no-backup battery storage option allows you to maximize savings by exporting excess energy back to the grid during peak times. It does not provide power during outages. Partial backup and whole home backup options store larger amounts of electricity and can power essential appliances during outages. The difference between them lies in the number of appliances available for use. Whole home backup is typically recommended, but in certain cases, a partial backup may suffice for specific homes.


In most cases, the final price remains the same. However, there may be instances where additional work is required during the site survey and design phase, which could affect the price. Rest assured, if any changes impact the price, you will have the opportunity to review and approve the updated price before the installation.
Yes, you will still have a utility bill. While solar power reduces your reliance on the grid, you remain connected to the utility for times when you require more electricity than your solar system generates. Your utility bill will indicate the power generated by your solar system and the power you may have used from the grid. Depending on your utility provider, any excess energy usage may be billed periodically or annually.

If you choose to own your solar system, you may qualify for up to a 30% tax credit from the federal government. It’s important to note that eligibility and the ability to claim the tax credit are subject to your individual tax situation. SolarX does not provide tax advice and recommends consulting a tax professional for personalized guidance. Additionally, SolarX may assist you in exploring other available incentives specific to your market. Please consult your sales representative for more information.

If you are making a full upfront payment, a $1000 deposit is due at signing. Subsequently, 90% of the remaining balance is due on the day of installation, with the final 10% payment due on the day of an approved inspection. If you choose a financing option, the first billing date may vary based on the finance provider. Most finance providers typically initiate billing within 60 to 90 days after the completion of your installation. For complete details, please contact SolarX’s Customer Success team or consult your sales representative.
For full upfront payments, you can pay via ACH (Automated Clearing House) or a virtual checking account. If you opt for financing, please consult your finance provider to determine the accepted payment methods for your monthly bills.

Homeowners Association

SolarX does not require HOA approval to move forward with the installation process. In the majority of the markets we serve, there are laws in place that protect your rights and ensure that HOAs cannot significantly hinder your ability to adopt solar energy. However, it is advisable to follow any local rules and regulations set by your HOA to avoid potential fines or conflicts with neighbors.
If you have obtained approval from your HOA, please promptly send the proof of approval to so that we can update your records accordingly.
In most areas where SolarX operates, there are legal provisions that prevent HOAs from unduly restricting your solar installation. If your HOA has denied your project, please contact SolarX’s Customer Success team. We will provide you with the necessary guidance and information to help address the situation and explore options to overcome the denial. In some cases, we may be able to make adjustments to your system design to meet your HOA’s requirements or assist you in appealing the decision.


Once we have obtained the necessary building permit and other approvals for your solar project, the SolarX scheduling team will contact you to discuss the earliest available installation date. Typically, installations are scheduled within two weeks from the scheduling date.
During the scheduling call, our team will provide you with all the necessary information on how to best prepare for the installation day.
SolarX will install various components, including solar panels, a mounting system, a conduit, an inverter, and any additional equipment you have chosen. The solar panels and racking system will be installed on the designated roof planes according to your solar system design. The inverter is usually installed near your existing electrical equipment and meters on the exterior of your home. The conduit will connect the solar panels to the inverter and other electrical components.
Our scheduling team will determine if your presence is required during the installation and inform you accordingly.
While we recommend finalizing the preferred location of your solar system before installation, there may be situations where adjustments are necessary based on the actual conditions of your home.
In most cases, our installation crews complete the work within 6 to 8 hours. In rare cases requiring multiple days, our scheduling team will inform you of the expected duration. If your installation extends beyond one day, our team will provide you with the next available date for completion.
After the solar system installation, we will schedule an inspection with the local city or town. Once the inspection is passed, we will obtain permission to operate from your utility provider. Upon approval, your solar system will be activated, and you can start saving money.


We aim to complete the inspection within 30 days of the installation being finished. However, inspection timelines can vary based on several factors. If changes are made during the installation, updating the building permit may be required, which can take a few weeks or even months depending on your location. If the initial inspection fails, the process may need to be repeated, leading to longer timelines. Our goal is to ensure your inspection is approved and your solar system is activated and generating electricity.
No specific action is needed from you for the inspection to take place.
Inspection timelines vary depending on the city or town. Generally, a SolarX technician will wait for the inspector to arrive, and the inspection itself usually takes around 30 minutes.
Once your inspection is approved, SolarX will proceed with the necessary steps to activate your solar system. The process may vary depending on your utility provider. For more details, please contact our Customer Success team.
Unfortunately, utility providers operate at their own pace. SolarX will follow up on your behalf until the process is completed.
