Our Installation Process

At Hilton Head Solar, we pride ourselves on the quality of our installation.  Unlike some other solar energy providers in the Hilton Head area, we don’t subcontract our work.  We are direct installers.  With over 20 years of combined direct hands-on experience designing, installing, and maintaining solar energy systems, we won’t trust our name with anyone else.    

Our concentration on the quality of the installation will provide you with the most attractive solar system that provides you with years of dependable electricity production.

The Problem & Our Installation Difference

Triple-black (black cells, backing, and frame) solar panels that provide a seamless appearance on your roof

Whenever possible, we run internal wiring through your attic space

We install all transition boxes under your solar panels. This technique, combined with internal wiring, allows us to hide the transition of wiring from outdoors to indoors on your home.

We penetrate directly into structural members, assuring the tightest installation and withstanding the wind speeds necessary for the local weather conditions.

All penetrations are fully flashed, with black flashing that is sealed to the roof, and integrated into your existing asphalt shingles.  Penetration points are elevated, installed with rubber gaskets, then sealed to protect your home for years.

All rails are black, trimmed to within one inch of the edges of the solar panels, and black-capped.

We install with stainless steel vinyl coated wire management ties and aluminum/EPDM rubber wire management clips. This equipment is special ordered and not a common method in the solar industry. They do not degrade when exposed to the elements. Unlike the typical plastic UV rated zip ties that our competitors use,  our specialized wire-management system will last the life of the system.

We use flashing and L-brackets assuring a low-profile installation that is close to the roof while providing adequate airflow behind the panels.

When possible, panels are installed over rooftop ventilation pipes and vented out the top of the solar panel array.  Design methods, based upon years of designing solar arrays, minimize the disruption of the solar panel layout whenever possible.
