Different people have different expectations from solar. The sustainability champions among your clientele may see it as an effective way to up their clean energy consumption and cut down on their carbon footprint. Whereas, on the other side of the fence are clients who see it more as a potent long-term investment opportunity than as a beacon of hope for a cleaner greener future. Whatever position your clients take, one thing is for sure – solar, in its essence, won't disappoint them.
What would disappoint them are factors that prevent them from getting their solar PV system up and running on time. You know where we are getting at because, as installers, you might have seen the installation process stagnating time and again at one particular phase. Yes, we are talking about the inherent difficulty in acquiring permits for your solar PV systems!
For many of you out there, this is where the actual challenge really begins to kick in. Why? Because getting approval from the authorities isn't, by any means, a walk in the park. It's a process and an exhausting one at that! Here, you are required to adhere rather strictly to different variables, (variables, because these rules and regulations vary from state-to-state, county-to-county, town-to-town). From building codes to electrical and fire codes, there is a long and quite rightly, tedious list of variables that you need to be well-versed in and met with before bringing yourself to apply for a permit. And even after moving these mountains, your chances of procuring an instant permit look all but bleak.
There will inevitably be long delays, which will not only cost you valuable time that you may otherwise spend productively on the project, but also test the patience of your clients. And once a particular threshold has been reached, your clients would even be willing to pull the plug on the project and move on.
This is not a favorable situation to be in – both from your point of view as well as the government's because, like you, they too have an objective, which is to promote clean energy. So as things stand, complicated and worn-out procedures like these just don't cut it. They would want to sort this out quickly as much as you want. However, this again will take time. And what you need is a quick fix. So, what do you do?
Well, the most effective way to steer clear of the hurly-burly is to outsource the design work to professionals who offer solar permit services. These are experts we are talking about – people who know a thing or two about drafting detailed solar plan sets that stay relevant in the eyes of the authorities. Imagine how much time, effort, and money you can save simply by bringing in a professional aide! Without breaking a sweat, you will have PV plan sets ready that will not only conform to the law of the land but also add to the performance and aesthetics of your solar PV systems. So why invite all the trouble when you can outsource the design work to qualified professionals and get top-notch solar plan sets in return?
