6 steps to going solar

6 steps to going solar

Are you thinking about installing solar panels? Here is a step by step guide on how our solar engineers prepare for the process leading up to your installation.

Onsite/Online Survey

Should you choose to proceed with Future Proof Solar, we will commission an onsite or online survey. The survey is carried out by one of our accredited solar pv surveyors, as part of the surveyors remit they will carry out:

Cable run diagram & full system design confirmation- panel layout, annual generation figures and payback figures

You will be contacted to arrange your survey within 7 days of placing your deposit and the survey will take place within 14 days.

3D System Design

After your survey, our team will create a full 3D system design and shading analysis using industry standard design software which will confirm the annual energy (kWh) production of the system. Variations in the design and cable runs will be discussed and confirmed with you. We will prepare a report for the solar engineer to follow on the day of installation and a contract will be sent to the customer stating the terms, conditions and payment options. 


Permitting is only applicable to customers in a conservation area or listed building


Our lead time from deposit to installation is approximately 3-4 weeks. Most installations are completed within one working day by our solar engineers. If we anticipate it will be longer you will be made aware during the design stage.

The installation would be carried out by the following:

  1. Electrician
  2. Roofer
  3. Labourer

All solar engineers and members of our team are employed, we do not use sub-contractors.
