  • How does DIY work?
    Solar DIY Co will walk you through the entire process of purchasing, installing, and maintaining your solar panels. Here's how it all works: 1. After making contact with us, we'll help you choose a solar panel that will meet your home's current energy needs. 2. We'll send you a design so you can more accurately imagine how the panels look on your home. 3. Our team will send all necessary planning documents to the city to obtain permits. 4. We'll deliver the solar panels on a day that works best for you. 5. You can install the solar panels on your own using our installation guides or you can hire a contractor. 6. Your system will receive a professional and final inspection before going live! You can read about our process in greater detail here (link to about page).
  • What does a DIY solar panel installation look like?
    Much easier than you might think! At Solar DIY Co, we handle all of the leg work including the design, orders, engineering, and permits. You can even have the solar panels delivered directly to your roof! The only thing you'll have to do is follow the clear instructions provided in our instructional guides and videos to secure the panels to your roof. This includes some heavy-lifting, screwing, and wiring. If you're up for the task, you can save several thousand on installation costs.
  • What if I don't want to install the solar panels on my own?
    No problem! When you work with Solar DIY Co, you'll be saving money whether you undertake the DIY installation or not. You can always hire a contractor to handle the job for you. Of course, your savings won't be as big, but you'll have the added peace of mind knowing that everything is done professionally.
  • How will my solar panel system be designed and sized?
    The team at Solar DIY Co will work diligently to ensure your solar panel systems are a perfect match for your needs and goals. One of the first considerations is your home's annual energy consumption. However, that's not all we take into account when determining the best systems for our clients. We also leverage advanced technology to determine the most advantageous positioning of solar panels on your roof based on where the sun hits it throughout the day. This way, you can rest assured that the system you're getting is going to be perfect for your home
  • Can solar panels power my home when the power goes out?
    Solar DIY Co provides solar panels designed to provide direct electricity to your home. Any additional power that's generated is sent to the electricity company where it's stored for future use. If local electrical lines ever need to be worked on during a power outage, your solar panels will actually be turned off.
  • Can solar panels work on cloudy days or when it's snowing?
    Solar panels don't just work when it's sunny outside. Anytime during the day, no matter how much cloud coverage there is, solar panels can still pull energy from the present sunlight. However, when panels are covered by snow or other debris, they're not able to function properly. That's why solar panels are generally installed on a slant so weather-related debris falls off.
  • Should I upgrade my electrical panel?
    It's always a good idea to consult an electrician regarding your home's electrical panel when you add solar panels to your electrical system. Whether or not you'll require an electrical upgrade is entirely dependent on its capacity and what appliances you currently have hooked up to it.
  • Should I replace my roof before installing solar panels?
    Great question! Since your solar panels are going to last anywhere between four and five decades, you'll want to make sure your roof is capable of lasting at least half that time. It's recommendable to hire a professional inspector to determine if any repairs or an entire replacement is necessary. Doing it before installing your solar panels can save you a lot of money in the long run.
  • What payment options do I have?
    Solar DIY Co is committed to helping clients get affordable solar panels. That includes supporting you with various payment options. Whether you want to pay with credit or cash or you prefer to take advantage of our financing options, we're here to help you make it possible.
