Our Engineering Expertise Ensures Reliable Solar Installation

TruHome Pros solar professionals thoroughly evaluate the size and condition of your roof, taking into account daily sun exposure to design and build a high-quality solar panel system that fits your needs, budget, and saves you money. An engineering inspection evaluates the condition of your roof and ensures it is structurally sound (we can repair and/or replace roofing if necessary; it is typically the case that we install a new roof at the same time as the solar panels).

The engineer also inspects your electrical panel to ensure it has sufficient amperage to connect to your solar panels. Then permits are obtained, and the panels and inverter(s) are ordered. Depending on the size and complexity of your system, the final installation of your solar panels and electrical interconnections typically takes anywhere from 1 to 3 days.

From permitting to powering up, our company manages the full scope of your solar installation to ensure it is safe and reliable for years to come.

Going solar is a big decision and not cheap however not as expensive as I thought. Keep in mind when making this decision you will pay off the solar panels, but you’ll never pay off your electric company! With the world going green eventually you’ll be paying for solar from your electric company anyway. From the beginning everyone has been very professional and friendly. Never once did I feel pressured into making the decision to go solar. Every question I had was not only answered but answered so that I could understand it. I highly recommend!

Working with Remy & his TruHome Pros Team was an incredible experience. Their exceptional attention to detail, ability to assess our needs, address our concerns, and provide a top notch service was greatly appreciated! Remy sat with us while we discovered what Solar could do for our family & showed us renderings of what the exact system could look like for us right then and there. Now we have just completed installation and see it is just as slim and sleek as described. The installation team was great & worked quickly while neatly installing everything. Highly recommend working with this team if you get the chance!

TruHome Pros successfully activated the solar panels and made me believe that there are good and honest companies that will sincerely help you feel good about spending money for the right reason. I have a tremendous amount of respect for Robert Koson, the salesperson with TruHome Pros. As he mentioned in our initial meeting, he would be there every step of the way, and he kept his word. Thank you, Robert.

I kept seeing these ads for government assistance solar program, so I decided to look into it and get some more information. TruHome came out, Pete the rep explained everything very thoroughly the process of how it works. They had a very impressive technology, and came prepared with a generated imaging of what would work best for our home. If you are looking to go solar, definitely go with truhome. they explain the whole process show you what government programs or savings you could have with the solar panels, generate all the numbers for you all, potentially what your energy bill would look like down the road. Basically they walk you through every single step of the process. They even have an app, if you have any solar panels that are down you can put an order in for somebody to come out and get them fixed. The whole solar experience is pretty amazing.

FAQs

After you sign a contract, we send an engineer to evaluate your electrical system and inspect your roof. The next step is to acquire the necessary permits. Once we have approval, we prep your roof and/or replace shingles or tiles as needed or, in many cases, replace the old roof with a new roof. Then, we install the electrical wiring that connects to the solar panels. Next is the racking required to support the solar panels, which is installed and leveled. Then, finally, the panels are installed and connected to an inverter to convert DC (direct current) to AC (alternating current) used in your home and by the power company. But before you can turn the solar panel system on, it must be inspected and approved by your local utility and, in most cases, a local town inspector.

The cost depends on the number of solar panels and installation labor. Every home and location is different, so there is no standard cost. Keep in mind that various tax incentives significantly reduce the cost of solar panels. Before we do any roof work or solar service, we provide a quote for your approval.

For a general guide, these are rough averages by state: *

Illinois’ average cost of a solar panel installation ranges from $13,600 to $18,400. On a cost-per-watt ($/W) basis, a solar panel installation in Illinois ranges in price from $2.72 to $3.68.

The average cost of a solar panel installation in Wisconsin ranges from $14,195 to $19,205. On a cost-per-watt ($/W) basis, a solar panel installation in Wisconsin ranges in price from $2.84 to $3.84.

The average cost of a solar panel installation in Michigan ranges from $14,875 to $20,125. On a cost-per-watt ($/W) basis, a solar panel installation in Michigan ranges in price from $2.98 to $4.02.

* Estimates based on information provided by EnergySage.

It’s certainly worth it if you want to reduce and even eliminate monthly utility bills, reduce your carbon footprint, and increase the value of your property.

Every installation is different, and the time it takes depends on the number of solar panels and the condition of your roof. In general, our company can complete your install in 1 to 3 days. We provide an estimated timeframe in your solar services quote.

The roof must be in good condition with sufficient sun exposure so that the solar panels are tilted in a mostly southern direction to achieve maximum exposure. The best direction is south because the sun is always in the southern half of the sky, at least for those of us in North America. While east or west is less than optimal, the solar panels can still capture enough energy to generate sufficient electricity.

No. While solar panels are weather-resistant and aren’t affected by rain during normal operation, there’s a risk to the installers working under rainy conditions. Besides increasing the potential for slipping on a wet roof, installation requires running and testing wiring, which, under rainy conditions, increases the risks of electrocution.

While solar panels are highly durable, they do get dirty, which blocks sunlight and reduces efficiency. A good rule of thumb is to clean the panels every six months. It all depends on where you live and the surroundings of your home. Be careful, however, not to disturb any of the electrical wiring. If you have to get on the roof to reach the panels or are uncomfortable working around electrical systems, having a solar professional perform the service is best. Our company offers a highly affordable maintenance plan to ensure your solar panels work optimally.
