Check to see if you are entitled to any kind of subsidy when installing solar panels. It can make a big difference on your budget. The County Administrative Board offers grants that can cover up to 20% of the cost. Read more about grants for solar panels
3. Planning permission
Normally you do not need planning permission when installing solar panels, however, there are exceptions to every rule. It is therefore important that you investigate whether you need a planning permission in your case. Read more about planning permission.
4. Complete your order
When all the details are in place, we place the order and pick a time for the installation.
When your solar panels are ready, it is time to deliver the solar cells to your home. We keep you informed about the delivery status and where the solar panels are located, as well as the expected delivery time. As a rule, the solar panels are delivered a few days before the actual installation is planned.
Installing solar cells usually takes about half a day to a full day, depending on the number of solar panels. During installation, you as a customer need to be available at home because our solar panel installers need to have access to the buildings power plant. When the installation is complete, an electrical installer comes and switches on the electricity. Finally, we at Svea Solar will inform your electricity company that the replacement has been carried out so that they can come and replace the electricity meter.
