Whether you call Scudder Solar and speak to one of our team members or you submit the estimate form you filled out online, we will gather your information and take detailed notes about your project. Then, one of our solar design consultants will make an appointment with you for an on-site visit. At Scudder, we realize each property is unique, just like our customers. Our solar estimating process includes a personal, in-home consultation for that very reason. We are here to help you determine if solar is the correct answer for you and your home or business. Meeting with you in person to thoroughly assess your properties' viability for solar is a crucial part of our commitment to exceptional customer service.
An experienced Scudder solar design consultant will visit your home or business to properly analyze your property and electrical usage and perform a complete solar energy feasibility study. Accurate measurements and shading studies are essential for designing the right solar photovoltaic system for your specific needs and site. During our on-site visit, we want to work as closely as possible with you to define the type of system that would suit your circumstances best, including financially and aesthetically. As a licensed solar contractor and a licensed roofing contractor, we will also determine if there are any roofing or structural concerns we need to address before your solar installation.
After carefully assessing your property, including the data we collect at your on-site evaluation, your Scudder Solar design consultant and our electrical engineers will design a system specific to your energy needs and property requirements. We will also prepare a comprehensive solar proposal, including detailed findings, equipment specifications, system size suggestions, photographs, annual savings and payback estimations, financing options, and the entire scope of the work, including materials, benefits, warranties, advantages or disadvantages, and an outline of the whole process for your project. We will walk you through each proposal line and clearly explain the details. Additionally, we'll discuss what incentives (including tax credits, if available) you may be eligible for to help you make an informed decision and maximize your investment with solar. Educating our customers about solar power and all of the available options we offer is an integral part of our proposal process.
You will sign the proposal if you decide to proceed with your solar design project. Our engineers will then begin to design your physical system. At the same time, we will help you apply for the rebates, incentives, and tax credits you may be eligible for. We will also deliver a Scudder Solar Energy Systems customer care package, including pertinent contactincluding pertinent contact information for the team members you are working with and a comprehensive outline of how our installation process will proceed at your home or business.
We will also apply for the roofing and electrical permits and schedule the date of your solar installation.
Our licensed and certified solar installers and electricians will install your system, which generally takes approximately five working days, depending on the size of the system we have built for your home or your business.
After installing your new solar power system, there will be a series of inspections, including electrical, utility, and building. We will schedule these inspections and be present at your property for each of them to answer any questions.
Your new system will receive a permit sign-off from the building, electrical inspectors, and PG&E. Then, your system will be interconnected to the grid and you'll be switched on to solar! With your system connected and complete, you can enjoy virtually maintenance-free, cost-saving renewable energy for many years to come! But please note that our relationship doesn't end when we flip that switch; we are with you for the long haul to answer questions and concerns, monitor your system, give you tips or assistance with cleaning, and much more.
