Are you considering transitioning your Northern California home to clean energy? Installing solar panels can revolutionize your energy efficiency and save you money in the long run. Knowing the roles each participant—yourself, the contractor, and PG&E—plays in this journey is crucial for a seamless switch to solar power.

Your Role: Preparation and Anticipation

Your active involvement in preparing your home for solar power is essential. Think of it as laying the groundwork for a remarkable transformation.

PG&E’s Role: Ensuring a Smooth Integration

PG&E plays a pivotal role in ensuring the seamless integration of your solar system with the grid. Their assessments, compliance checks, and final permission to operate your solar system are crucial steps in this process.

Understanding the Timelines

Successful solar installation relies on teamwork and understanding the timelines involved:

  • Interconnection Agreement and Incentives: You sign the Interconnection Agreement, exploring PG&E incentive programs and potential rebates with your contractor. Completing the Interconnection Agreement application promptly allows energy generation after passing local inspections.
    Installation typically spans a few days to weeks based on unique home conditions and system requirements.
  • Building Permit: City or county inspections are essential for obtaining the final building permit. Coordinating with your contractor ensures compliance with safety and code regulations before activating your system.
  • PG&E Approval: Your contractor submits vital paperwork to PG&E, including the Interconnection Application. PG&E usually takes 5 to 10 business days (up to 30 in certain cases) to grant permission after receiving required paperwork.
  • Engineering System Review by PG&E: During the review, PG&E might identify necessary system upgrades, potentially incurring costs and causing slight delays.
