What to Expect from the Solar Panel Installation Process

Our experienced roofing contractors at Harford Roofing & Exteriors will facilitate and streamline the process of installing solar panels on your roof. You will make an appointment with us, and we will inspect your roof to make sure it can sustain a solar panel installation and the weight of the solar panels. We may recommend roofing repairs or additional roofing services to make your roof compatible for solar panel installation. We will then give your information to Powur, who will review your energy bills and create a custom proposal for solar energy. You can review their plans and choose the one that best meets your family’s needs and goals. You will then sign a contract with them for solar energy service, and they will arrange for a Powur-certified installer to install the solar panels on your roof. In order to install your solar panels, Powur will:

  • Map out the wiring routes and determine the best place to install the solar panels and all components. They will evaluate the level of sun and hours of sunlight on each area of your roof and may recommend trimming trees that are blocking sunlight from your roof.
  • Determine how to ground your solar system.
  • Install permanent solar racks on your roof.
  • Install solar panels and micro inverters on the racks.
  • Run wiring from your panels to your home, breaker box, or meter box.
  • Install a solar battery backup system at ground level or in your garage.
  • Arrange for an inspection of your solar panel installation.
  • Obtain approval from your utility company.
  • Activate your solar energy system.

Your Energy Savings When You Go Solar

Your energy savings from going solar will depend on how much electricity your household consumes, the size of your solar energy system and your home, and how much power it can generate. Your utility company’s electricity rates will also play a role. In general, solar energy systems save homeowners an average of $1,500 per year. The value of your home will also increase, and you can take advantage of tax credits and rebates.

Solar Tax Credits and Rebates in Maryland

The Residential Clean Energy Credit is a federal tax credit that offers taxpayers with solar energy equipment the ability to recoup up to 30% of the cost in the form of a federal tax credit.

The Maryland Energy Storage Income Tax Credit can award up to $750,000 in tax credit certificates during a given tax year to qualifying applicants on a first come, first served basis. Other Maryland solar incentives that are available in 2024 include:

  • SREC Program – After installing solar panels, homeowners can earn money back for energy generated through the SREC marketplace.
  • Residential Clean Energy Rebate Program – Eligible homeowners can get a rebate of up to $1,000 for the installation of solar panels. The program operates annually on a first-come, first-serve basis.

What People Say About Us

They are definitely at the top of my list of companies i have dealt with. I had to have siding repair done and install new roof shingles. They worked hard and got the job done fast; in 1 day! Thank you to you and your crew. You did a great job roofing my home. You and your crew were professional, courteous, and had a general concern of my satisfaction that far exceeded expectations. Thank you again.

I had them do a whole new roof for me and i cannot express how happy I am with the work that they did! The pricing was reasonable compared to their quality of work, which was OUTSTANDING! They were very personable, friendly, and respectful, which sadly is hard to come by these days. I would absolutely recommend Harford Roofing & Exteriors!

We had a big storm come by and blow some shingles off the roof. We called a few companies, some who didn’t even show! Not only did Harford Roofing & Exteriors show up, they did a temporary seal with a tarp until we could go through their financing options to get a full roof. I highly recommend them as they were patient and kept us in communication the whole time.
