Titan Installation Process

  • Site Survey and Design
  • Permitting
  • Installation
  • City Inspections
  • Utility Connection

Titan’s dedicated technician will visit the property to confirm the system design, verify measurements, and adjust for shade and obstructions on roof. After the site evaluation, a solar design expert will make any number of adjustments to the customized plan to ensure everything looks and operates perfectly. From site visit to design, it can take between 3 to 5 weeks.

After design plans are finalized, they will be submitted by Titan to the local city government Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) for permitting.  Permit approvals are subject to schedule of the governing AHJ Department. This can take anywhere from 2 to 8 weeks.

After permit approval, Titan will contact the property owner to schedule installation. When Titan’s install team arrives, they will go over the design plans for final approval before they begin. Once the Titan installation crew wraps up the job, they’ll finish by giving the property owner a full Solar 101 on the system. Depending on the size of property and system, this phase takes 1 to 5 days.

There must be a final inspection by the city or county before the system can be connected to the grid. Depending upon the time of install, the backlog of solar inspections, and the local government, the estimated time to complete this step is generally 1 to 4 weeks.

Two things that need to happen before the system can produce electricity. First, Titan will submit the documents to the utility company to connect to the grid. This usually takes 1 to 2 weeks. Second, the utility company has to install net metering to track how much energy is producing. Titan will have little control over how long this step is going to take!

HOW SOLAR WORKS

Solar Panels

The solar panel’s job is to take excess electron energy and turn it into electric power. Silver acts as the conductor to pass electricity on to an inverter.

Inverter

The inverter acts as the brain of your solar system. It converts Direct Current (DC) electricity into Alternating Current (AC) power (the standard electrical current used in your home). Each solar cell generates roughly 1.0 Volt of electricity.

Electrical Panel

The AC power is run to the electrical panel (breaker box) where it can be distributed throughout your home.

Utility Meter

This is where the utility bill savings happen. The utility meter measures your electrical supply. Usually, solar panels produce more power than your home will actually use. Your utility company will offset your next bill for any excess power your system accumulates.

Homeowner FAQ's

How much can I expect to save by going solar?

Use this solar panel calculator to quickly estimate your solar potential and savings by address.

What is the process for going solar?

First, you will speak with a dealer from a local solar sales company to customize the right plan for your home. (We are happy to suggest sales companies if you need recommendations!) After your sale is finalized, your dealer will contact Titan with your paperwork. Once this process has been completed, Titan will reach out to you to customize your design plan, install the system, connect it to the grid, and start your solar savings!

How long will my installation take?

Installation timelines depend on the size of the system. Normally, an installation takes less than one day. A very large system can take up to two days.

What if I move?

Purchased systems can be relocated to your new home or you can include the system into your home value. If you used a leasing company, you can pay off the system or you can transfer it to the new homeowner. If you elect to pay off the system, you can include this price in your listing price. Contact Titan if you have any questions.

Can I store excess energy?

Yes, however, where the energy is stored is dependent upon whether you choose to install a solar storage battery with your system. If your installation does include a storage battery, your excess energy will be sent there. If your system does not include a battery, excess energy produced will be sent to the utility grid until sundown.

Will solar panels affect the value of my home?

Recent reports show that solar panels can immediately add value to your home. Don’t take our word for it, read this report from EnergySage.

Can I add more panels later?

As long as your roof has the room for additional panels. Contact Titan and we can assist you!

Who takes care of the panel maintenance?

Routine maintenance is the responsibility of the homeowner.

What happens if the power goes out or there is bad weather?

If the power goes out in your area, systems tied to the grid go out also. It is not safe to send power out to the grid where workers are attempting to fix a power outage problem. Weather conditions like rain and snow can affect system production, however, solar panels will continue to produce energy on a cloudy or foggy day.
