EPL Solar Benefits Process: Savings, Survey, Installation

Our Process

Savings Report

The Solar Savings Report gives you everything you need to know about your solar savings potential. You’ll see how solar works, get a custom panel layout and an estimated yearly production, as well as a new estimated bill. You’ll also get a peek at incentives, 25-year savings, and a whole lot more.


No one likes reading through and signing thousands of documents for what feels like hours. We’ll quickly walk you through some required installation and loan documentation that will need your signature. Most can be signed electronically, and we make this step as painless and seamless as possible.

Site Survey

With documents signed, it’s time to get your new system dialed in. Site surveys can often be done by your representative who will take some photos around your home. They’ll capture things like electrical panels, breakers, your roof, and attic. Some cities require an additional site survey, but don’t worry, we’ve got that covered. Your representative will let you know if you need one and get it all set up on a schedule that works for you.

Final Design & Permit

After the site survey, a final engineered design, known as a computer-aided design (CAD), will be created for your roof. The CAD is designed in accordance with all regulations required by the state and local utility company to make sure we don’t run into any issues or roadblocks. Once the CAD is approved, your permitting applications are finished, and we’ll submit the final plans.


Once those permits are received, we’re ready to install your new solar system. We’ll work with you to find an installation date that fits your schedule.


Once your new solar system is installed, we’ll submit for Permission to Operate, or PTO, with your utility company. The approval of PTOs varies by utility company, but we work hard to make sure it’s approved as quickly as possible. Once PTO is approved, we will be with you throughout the commissioning process so that you can start utilizing the power that you produce.
