Install Process

Step 1 - Contact Us

Contact us to get started by calling 408-981-9527 or by email at We listen to your needs, goals, and budget and design a system that eliminates your electric bill.


During this time we also begin by collecting  your historical electric usage to correctly size your solar system.

Step 4 - Design & Permit

We then send your project to drafting to prepare a CAD or “blueprint” design for your project. We use this design to Permit your project and work with your Homeowner’s Association (HOA). Permit fees are always included in our quote.

Each customer will be updated throughout your project. We are BIG on communication and we are here to answer any questions you have along the way.

Step 2 - Site Survey

A  site survey is conducted:

  • We measure your roof and the available sunlight that strikes it.

  • We inspect your electrical system for solar compatibility in its existing state.

  • We verify the structural integrity of your roof to support the weight of the system.


Many of our competitors do not perform site surveys, relying strictly on satellite imaging. In fact, most of our competitors never see the roof until their crew sets foot on it to begin installation (a HUGE mistake).  Our site surveys allow us to maximize the number of solar panels that can be installed and enable us to identify any required electrical or structural work that may be required before the solar installation process begins.

Step 3 - Sign Contract

Your JD Energy Solutions consultant will present an optimal system design along with options for system equipment. Pick your favorite option and we’ll provide a detailed financial proposal that maximizes savings and Return on Investment.

Step 5 - Construction

Once your installation is installed, We coordinate your final inspection with the Building Department and applies for Utility Interconnection & Net Metering.

You’ll then start producing your own power, saving you money and reducing your carbon footprint. We are here to support you today, and for the life of the system.
