What Catamount Solar Will Do for You
Free Solar Site Assessment and Load Analysis – The first step after contacting Catamount Solar is to set up a site visit. While at your home, we will review possible options for locating the modules and other equipment, taking into account shading, exposure, building orientations, and the existing electrical system. Please have a recent electric bill handy so we can use its information to calculate your annual electrical usage.
A Detailed Proposal – following the site visit we will send you a detailed proposal, including the proposed system size, key component specifications, an estimate of the systems yearly production and an estimation of what percentage of your annual electrical bill the system will offset. Our proposal will also provide a fixed system price and well as your net cost following receipt of the state rebate and federal tax credit.
State Paperwork – Once we have your agreement to proceed, we will take care of all the necessary state paperwork to secure your rebate, file for the required Certificate of Public Good (VT residents), and obtain historic preservation approval (required in VT if your home is older than 50 yrs.). All you will need to do is sign the completed applications.
Professional Installation – We cannot start until the rebate reservation is approved. In the meantime we will be obtaining all the parts and equipment specified for your system. Once we receive the approvals (usually within 1-2 months), we will shortly be out to your home to install the system. The member-owners of Catamount Solar will be respectful of your property, keep up an efficient installation schedule and maintain a tidy worksite.
Interaction with Utility for Meter Installation – Once the system is completed we will coordinate with the utility to have the net meter and gross solar meters installed.
Final Rebate Documentation – Once the system is up and running, we will promptly compile the required documentation and send it so that your rebate check will arrive as quickly as possible.
