Your Solar Journey with ATX Solar
Timeline: Today

Deciding to convert your home to solar energy is an exciting step towards sustainable living. Now, you’re likely curious about the duration from the decision to the actual production of solar energy. Every home is unique, and so is every solar installation. At ATX Solar, we aim for transparency and efficiency. Here’s a timeline that will guide you through every phase of your solar panel installation journey:

1. Consultation
Timeline: 45 minutes - 1 hour

Your path to solar begins with a discussion with our seasoned ATX Solar consultants. We'll use advanced satellite technology to examine your roof’s solar viability and check your electricity consumption to determine the best system size. This meeting can happen at your residence or virtually. During this, we’ll offer you a tailored system design and quote, while highlighting possible financing and incentives like net metering, federal rebates, and local incentives.

2. On-Site Evaluation & Design Confirmation
Timeline: 2-6 weeks

After your initial consultation, we’ll coordinate a detailed on-site assessment. A representative from ATX Solar will visit the prospective site for the solar installation and go through a 50 point assessment to build an accurate design. We’ll create a system design, ensuring it's in line with zoning laws, structural constraints, and aesthetics. Once you give the green light on the design, we’re set to proceed.

3. Permitting
Timeline: 4-6 weeks

Before the hands-on work begins, we'll obtain necessary approvals. This could be from the city, your utility provider, or if applicable, your homeowner’s association (HOA). We’ll manage the documentation, keeping you updated. A potential delay here might come from utility companies or HOAs. Being a local Austin-based company, our strong relations with local jurisdictions ensure smooth sailing for our clients.

4. System installation
Timeline: 1–3 days

Once all approvals are in, our dedicated ATX Solar team will set an installation date. In just a few days, your home will be solar-ready! The exact duration depends on the system's complexity and size, but our efficient team aims to minimize any inconvenience.

5. Inspection
Timeline: 4-6 weeks

Post-installation, the system requires approval from the utility company and typically a city inspector. We’ll coordinate these checks, but the actual timing depends on the utility company and the city's schedules.

6. Activation & Finalization
Timeline: 1–3 weeks

The wait is almost over! We'll guide you on how to activate your system and offer you access to your energy monitoring dashboard. We’ll also touch base for a wrap-up session to address any lingering questions.

7. Support
Timeline: Ongoing

Though the installation is complete, our relationship isn’t! ATX Solar offers around-the-clock system monitoring and continual support. Our digital platform lets you track your energy production and savings. ATX Solar is proud to serve Texas with a commitment to quality and top-tier warranties to ensure your peace of mind.

Note: The stated timelines are general approximations and might vary due to external factors. Typically, it’s a 3-6 month journey from the contract signing to your home being solar-powered.
