The Process to Go Solar

In Massachusetts the popularity of solar energy technology has driven the installation of over 2.5 GW in solar power capacity. Much of that is rooftop solar placed on homes and businesses. While Rhode Island is catching up, the steps needed to efficiently go solar are mostly the same.

Southern Light Solar is an experienced designer and installer, having refined our process along the way all for the benefit of the buyer. The steps are generally quick and fluid.
