What Is a Solar Installer and Why Do You Need One?
A Solar Installer can refer to either the solar panel company that you obtain your residential solar system from or the people from that company that will do the actual installation of the solar panel system on your property.
Should the Solar Installer have any type of license?
The company must be licensed to install solar panels and hook you up to the grid. You should be able to easily find their license and contractor information on their website.
For example, Momentum Solar has two licenses for the state of Texas. One is the home improvement contractor’s license, and the other is an electrical contractor’s license.
Not only are these licenses important for your peace of mind in knowing that the solar company provides quality service, but they are also important for your insurance.
Why Do I Need a Solar Installer?
Installers need to have an excellent grasp of the type of solar panels and the best installation pattern to maximize the sunlight you can collect – there’s a lot more that goes into a residential solar panel system than one might realize!
You may think you can save money by doing it yourself, but it is very dangerous and not recommended. You’ll likely find that in the end, it would have been much more cost-effective to have hired a licensed solar installer.
When you consider all the intricate steps that are involved in installing solar panels and converting the collected solar energy into energy that you can use to power your home, it just makes sense to put this into the capable hands of licensed solar installers.
What Does the Solar Installer Do?
With their years of experience and knowledge, installers can make the job look easy. However, if you’ve never done their job and tried to do it, you’d be in for a big surprise.
Each piece of the solar panel system has an important role to play in the collection and conversion of solar energy for use in your home. These are the basic components of a solar panel system:

Can the Solar Installer Help Me With Solar Tax Credits and Solar Rebates?
Yes! Momentum Installers are experts in ensuring that you get any and all solar tax credits that you qualify for.
There’s also the generous US Federal solar incentive, the 30% federal Investment Tax Credit (ITC), which you’ll want to make sure you get the full benefit of.
The ITC will begin to phase out very soon though. In fact, the last day that you can get the ITC at the full 30% is December 31, 2019. Any steps you can take to get your solar panel system installed before December 31 is highly recommended. On January 1, 2020, the first phase-out begins with the ITC dropping to 26%.
Does Momentum Solar Help with Solar Financing?
Yes, we certainly do! Momentum Solar provides competitive solar financing options and also provides solar leasing programs, known as PPAs.
Ultimately you can count on the help and support of your Momentum Solar Installer to help you choose the right system, get it financed with all solar tax credits applied, and then get it installed.
