What to Expect: The Taitem Solar process

Taitem does solar better

Our professional engineers, installers, and designers are ready to work with you to bring renewable energy to your home or business. If you find that on-site installations may not be the right choice for you, learn about our Community Shared Solar program where you experience all the same benefits without the installation!

Site Visit & System Design

First, Taitem works with you on a preliminary quote that meets your energy needs and goals. Next, a Taitem solar engineer will visit your home or business and then custom design your roof or ground-mount system, complete with the technical details which ensure the best cost and benefit for you.


Contract Signing

Once you approve your system design, and Taitem’s structural and project engineers review and stamp the construction drawings, we’ll prepare your contract. Taitem’s rigorous internal quality assurance helps avoid unforeseen challenges and change orders and ensures a smooth, high-quality installation. Your first one-third payment is due at contract signing.



Now it gets exciting. We schedule your installation date and order materials. Your second one-third payment is due. Taitem’s award-winning solar crew (link) completes all on-site installation, wiring, and testing in accordance with the Electrical Code and industry best practices.


The System Goes Live!

Taitem has taken care of all the details including permitting, incentive and utility interconnection applications. We submit your final installation documentation to the utility. With their permission to connect your system, and your new NYSEG meter, you’re ready to generate your own power!


Introduction to your System

The final walkthrough visit is when Taitem explains all aspects of your new PV system, from the digital monitoring system to tax documentation. We answer any and all questions so you’re informed and feeling great about your new investment.
