Switching to renewable energy sometimes seems like a daunting task. There is a lot of thought that goes into each step of the process, and for many, the thought of going solar can be overwhelming. You want what is best for your family and for your home-  and so do we. That’s why our team at Orbit handles all of the paperwork with the local municipalities, any related permitting and fees, scheduling your inspections, and everything else along the way. In many cases, simply knowing what to expect eases concerns that homeowners have about going solar. 

Site Assessment

We will start out with your solar site assessment. By assessing your property and getting accurate measurements, we can design the best possible system for your needs. The Orbit team member will look at things like your roof size and shape, and any trees surrounding your home.

Design & Planning

After we’ve assessed your property, our team will design a custom solar energy system to suit your energy needs and compliment your roof shape and size. We work hard to make sure that your panels with be aesthetically pleasing and help to keep your home beautiful.


Our local office is fully equipped to take care of all permitting involved in your solar energy process. After the design is finished, we’ll work with your local township to get all the necessary paperwork taken care of, saving you the potential headache!


Once we’ve received approval on the permits, we will reach out to you in order to schedule your solar energy system installation. Having the panels installed is, of course, a huge step in going solar!

System Inspection

When your solar energy system has been fully installed, we will schedule any necessary inspections with your local municipalities.


Finally, your utility company will grant us Permission to Operate (we call this PTO for short.) Once we have this, we can work with you to activate your solar energy system so that you can enjoy your new clean and green renewable energy! 

If you have any questions about this process or are interested in learning more details about going solar and what to expect, give us a call at 1-800-836-3987 or email solar@orbitenergy.us for more information. We are always happy to ease your concerns and explain how easy it is to switch to solar.
