Solar Installation Timelines and Expectations
We’ll provide you with a Project Coordinator at the start of the timeline, so you’re never left guessing when or what comes next. Like any construction project, there can be unknowns. But, after more than 15,000 installations, we know how to manage them. The guide below lays out our expected milestones and how long each stage should take.
You’ll receive regular status updates when your project hits key milestones. There’s a lot that goes on behind the scenes – the part where the panels go on the roof isn’t the end! We want to wow you with the speed and efficiency of our process, while being 100% transparent with the status of your project.
Our team verifies site conditions, takes photos and detailed measurements, and assesses other environmental dynamics, if needed.
After the project has been verified, the finance company reviews the file and grants Notice to Proceed (NTP) with the project. ESP will review the site survey report and confirm that the roofing installation is possible.
Final drawings are submitted to your local municipality’s building and construction safety departments. Many cities review and approve plans the same day, or in a few days, but some cities can take weeks. Similarly, utility submittal and approval processes and timelines vary.
Note that any open permit, code enforcement ticket or any issues concerning unpermitted structures on the property site will cause your local municipality to put a hold on the roofing permit. When starting a project, please ensure that all open permits requests you may have with your local municipalities are closed out so we can get to work promptly for you.
Once approvals are received, your project manager will call to schedule the delivery and set-up of your new roof. The on-site work will typically take about one to three days, depending on the roof size and other conditions. Our crews are trained, licensed and bonded, technically skilled, and highly experienced.
The local municipality needs to approve our handiwork. Your project manager will call and arrange a time to have an inspector from the local municipality come out to review your roof. This may take more than one inspection, in the event that adjustments are required.
