Solar electricity is not a one-size-fits-all solution. That’s why our custom solar panel systems are designed based on factors like your home’s location, energy consumption and more to make sure your unique energy needs are met. Our solar panel installation process allows us to better understand how solar can help make your home more energy efficient. Here’s how Pink Energy’s 3-step installation process gets your solar panel system up and running quickly and efficiently:


Contact The Team

First, you’ll fill out a form online for a free quote. One of our solar experts will reach out to you shortly after to discuss how solar can fit your routine and energy needs. We’ll evaluate your home and property for qualities such as shade cover and average peak sunlight hours to help you make the most of your solar panel system. If you qualify, we’ll schedule a free in-home consultation for further evaluation.


In-Home Consultation

Next, you’ll receive an in-home visit from one of our experienced consultants. Together, you’ll review your electric bills and energy goals so your Pink Energy team can design the right sized solar system. From this, we’ll deliver a custom proposal created for your home. Once you agree to the proposed plan, we’ll prepare for installation day.


Solar Installation

On installation day, a team of install professionals will arrive promptly at your Charlotte home to install your custom solar system. The installation process should only take a day or two. Once installation is complete, we’ll test out your system and leave a spotless workspace. Following a passed inspection, your utility provider will swap out your meter—time to start earning your potential savings!4

Solar Panel Installation FAQs

How much does it cost to install solar panels in Charlotte?

Pink Energy’s solar panel systems are not one size fits all. We create custom solar systems for each customer’s unique energy needs. As such, it’s hard to give an estimate of what your solar panel installation could cost. However, generally the price will depend on your home’s current energy needs, what direction your home faces and how much sunlight your roof receives in addition to other such factors.

Can I install solar panels myself?

It’s possible to do, but we do not recommend it. Pink Energy’s qualified installation teams have the experience needed to ensure your panels are installed properly and in the best position to gather sunlight.

How long does it take to install solar panels?

Our installation team only takes a day or two to have your solar panels up and running. It’s a quick process!

Do I need permission to install solar panels in Charlotte?

Yes, some permits are required to install solar panels. It’s likely your local government has some requirements in place before installation occurs. Pink Energy’s experts will help you with the majority of the permits as part of the installation process.

Does installing solar panels void your roof warranty?

In nearly all cases, your roof warranty should remain intact. As long as the installation team did their job right (and our teams are experts), you shouldn’t have any problems with your roof’s warranty. We recommend that you should always double-check with your roof’s manufacturer or installer to confirm.

What permits do I need to install solar panels in Charlotte?

Permits needed to install solar panels vary by your own local government’s mandates. Your local government and local utility companies likely have specific requirements in place to satisfy local building and electrical codes. As a general rule, you can expect to have to file for a building permit, an electrical permit and possibly a solar photovoltaic (PV) permit.

Can my HOA stop me from installing solar panels in Charlotte?

This varies by neighborhood. However, you can expect to face some pushback from your HOA if your solar panels will face public spaces, such as an HOA-maintained park or road. Pink Energy will work with you to ensure that your solar panels are up to code and satisfy HOA requirements if at all possible!

Can solar panels be installed on a metal roof?

Absolutely! Metal roofs offer a stable surface for solar panel installation, so there should be no problem in having both.
