Solar Panel Installation
How home solar works through Reliant

When you sign up through Reliant, we'll help point you in the right direction for your installation. A Solar Specialist will answer all of your questions about the process and time frame. Our preferred installer will work with you to guide you through each step. Depending on HOA and permitting requirements, the process takes approximately six to 10 weeks, with approximately three days required on site for installation.
Steps for home solar installation
1 Consultation
A Solar Specialist will call to discuss your home's potential for generating power from the sun. Looking at satellite imagery of your roof, they will advise you on placement for best performance, highlight possible shading issues and discuss preliminary sizing based on your electricity usage.


2 On-site Assessment
If, after your initial discussion, you and the Solar Specialist conclude that solar is a good fit, a Reliant preferred installer will visit your home and conduct a thorough shade analysis, examine and measure your roof, and determine the best method for connecting the solar system to your electrical service.


3 Design and Contract
With information from the on-site assessment, and working with the sales consultant, the installer's design team will engineer and price the ideal system for your home. If everything meets your approval, a contract is signed, and if financing is desired, the necessary paperwork is completed.


4 Installation/Permits
A Reliant preferred solar installer will work with you to schedule your installation, manage the permits and coordinate the inspections. The paperwork process with the city and utility company is straightforward and will be handled by the installation company.


5 System Activation
Once your system has been inspected and approved for operation, the solar installer will energize the system and go over the main components. In addition, they will guide you toward the right electricity plan to receive credit for any excess power your system puts back on the grid.

1 Reliant Sun Fund rebate amount is determined by the size of the solar panel system installed, where you live and the customer's eligibility for other qualified TDSP rebates. You'll receive your Sun Fund rebate within six weeks after you have submitted the rebate request form and appropriate documentation. To qualify for the solar rebate, the customer must sign an installation agreement with a Reliant preferred solar installer and a Reliant Solar Rebate Agreement within 30 days of installation; enroll in the Reliant Simple Solar Sell Back 12 plan and remain enrolled for a term of at least 12 months (for customers in a Reliant service area); complete solar installation; agree to provide feedback on his or her experience with the installation of the solar system; and submit a completed rebate request. The customer will receive the Reliant rebate within six weeks of verification of completed solar system installation and enrollment in the Simple Solar Sell Back 12 plan (if located in ERCOT). Early cancellation of the Simple Solar Sell Back 12 plan may result in Reliant reclaiming a portion of the rebate if it has already been paid. The Simple Solar Sell Back plan is only available in Oncor and CenterPoint service areas. A dual-register meter beyond the Smart Meter may be required to measure generation and consumption. The customer's home generation system must be connected to the grid by their TDSP to receive monthly payments for their surplus generation as reported by their TDSP.
