How Our Process Works

Getting a solar power generating system working in your home is faster and easier than you may think.

Build for your future with a true energy architect on your side.

1

Site Assessment

A sales consultant from NW Wind & Solar will perform a preliminary site assessment using our comprehensive site assessment methodology. Upon review of the preliminary results, you have the option of continuing with a detailed on-site analysis and proposal.

2

Design

NW Wind & Solar’s electrical and structural engineers will then design a solar electric system that is tailored to your home's size, layout, and your needs. We will also provide you with multiple system options to choose from.

3

Proposal

Your NW Wind & Solar sales consultant will provide you with a detailed, written proposal that addresses how your goals will be achieved, both in terms of electricity use and financing. Included in the proposal will be possible options of different solar panel configurations and solar energy system sizes, applicable rebates and incentives, financing options, net investment in solar, annual savings, and equipment specifications.

4

Approval

Once you have approved our proposal, NW Wind & Solar will prepare all the paperwork for utility and local permitting. We will submit all appropriate applications for rebates and incentives. Additionally, we will provide you with financing options and applications, if appropriate. We will work with you to develop an installation schedule that meets your time requirements.

5

Installation

Construction time varies depending on the size and complexity of the system, but typically, installation in homes takes less than a week to complete.

6

Inspections

NW Wind & Solar will schedule all inspections with local building departments and provide results to you as they occur.

7

Customer Care

NW Wind & Solar will provide owner training and a tour of your newly-installed system. We will deliver an Owner's Manual which includes record drawings, warranties, product information, instructions, and maintenance requirements so you will be fully equipped to care for your new solar electric system.

8

Follow-Up

A solar electric system provides years of hassle-free service. Maintenance is minimal because it contains no moving parts. It is simply a matter of keeping the solar panels free of excess dirt and debris. The NW Wind & Solar service department is always on call to support the ongoing operation of your solar system. We are also happy to discuss maintenance programs with you to help keep your solar electric system in top working order and producing electricity at peak efficiency.
