Top Solar Panel Installation related questions
For certain types of tasks, you may need to enquire as to what specialist licenses may be required to undertake your task as this can vary. Please make sure that you confirm that a Tasker has the relevant solar panel installation licence and insurance before accepting an offer.
Yes. One reason for installing solar panels is because using electricity generated by your own panels is cheaper than using energy from the grid. You can also sell electricity back to the grid (which can earn you rebates) but the solar payback time is dependent on the effectiveness of your panels and your initial solar panel installation costs.
Residential and commercial buildings with roofs that aren’t in shade or blocked by trees are good candidates for solar panel installation. It doesn’t matter if your building’s roof is flat or slanted because you can use different setups and mounts to suit your roof type.
Work with a qualified professional as soon as you decide to go solar. This will give you the best outcome for your home (and electricity bill) because they will help you understand how many solar panels you need and what type, as well as help you coordinate delivery and installation dates.
This depends on the size of your home and your power consumption. During the initial inspection, your qualified solar panel installer will ask about your energy use and may refer to previous bills to accurately calculate how many solar panels you need.
Solar panel installation on a residential property takes 1-2 days, depending on the size and complexity of your system. However, the planning and preparation leading up to panel installation can take a month or more.

What does a solar panel installation include?
Make the most of your solar panels by getting them installed properly and then maintained, so they stay in good working order. Here are some of the tasks your solar panel installation service provider can complete for you:
Solar panel installation
Whether you want solar power installation on your home roof, caravan, or 4x4, a qualified solar power electrician must fit your panels. If you’re just starting your solar panel journey, your qualified solar panel installer will first assess your current electrical usage so they can advise how many panels you need and the best panel positions.
Have you already done this and ordered your panels? Then on your installation day, an electrician will fit your wiring, linking your panels to your energy storage system. Next, they’ll secure each panel to the roof, making sure they’re level. The inverter (the bit that converts the energy so you can use it in your home) is fitted last. Finally, your solar panel installer will carry out a test of the complete system.
Panel removal & relocation
You may need to remove or relocate your solar panels before an upgrade, house move, or for roof maintenance. With the help of a qualified solar panel installer, your panels are disconnected and the fixing bolts removed. Expert help minimises the risk of damage - to your home or the delicate electrical components inside the panel.
This is especially important if you plan to reinstall them later. Or perhaps you need to get rid of your solar panels entirely? Your solar panel installer will be aware of local regulations and schemes to dispose of and/or recycle your panels safely. Chat with them about this service before finalising your booking.
Solar panel repair
Is your solar panel performance a little gloomy? A solar panel repair & installation service can assess any damage. This includes:
- fixing or replace smashed panels
- repairing microcracks
- checking loose and faulty connections
- addressing leaks
- adjusting thermostats
- completing inverter testing
If there’s no visible damage to your solar panel system, but you’re getting lower outputs, you might need a solar panel cleaning service. This, combined with regular checks every 6-12 months, will ensure your panels will continue to deliver maximum benefits long-term.
One way to keep repair costs down is by protecting your solar panels from things like nesting birds and debris. You can hire a roofer or handyman to install solar panel skirting - lengths of mesh or protective skirts that stop pests from getting under your panels and causing damage. You may need to buy the solar skirting or mesh, or your expert may include the cost of materials on your quote.
