Since 2007, South Coast Solar has specialized in solar energy installation projects for residential, commercial, and government properties in Louisiana and South Carolina. The locally owned and operated company has performed over 1,500 residential installations, provides free estimates, and offers a $250 incentive for customer referrals. South Coast Solar offers solar panel installation, backup generators and battery backup systems.
South Coast Solar uses a flashed mounting system that features a patented water seal technology to keep installations from leaking from inclement weather. All materials and labor is covered under a 10-year warranty that can be transferred upon the sale of the home in the future. The production analysis for the installed system is also guaranteed for 10 years. A 25-year manufacturer warranty is also included.
A digital display on the inverter will provide current system data as well as some information on its performance history. There are several choices of third-party providers for performance monitoring services and equipment. Some of these services feature weather stations and sensors. South Coast Solar also has web-based and on-site monitoring that has revenue-grade capabilities.
South Coast Coast Solar is experienced in installing custom designs on many rooftops but they do not install solar panels on roofs with asbestos or concrete tiles. The size of your roof is also a factor in the type of solar panels that can be installed and rooftops that face south are best for installing these types of panels. Homes that experience a large portion of shade throughout the day will most not likely qualify for the installation of solar photovoltaic panels. Chimneys, vent piping, and ventilation fans may interfere with the installation process and may need to be moved before work can begin. Consumers will need to make sure they have at least 48 inches of wall space free from obstructions next to their utility meters for inverters and disconnect mountings.
South Coast Solar admits on its corporate website to spending a longer time with the installation process than other similar industry competitors. Consumers can expect a day of installation for each kilowatt of solar electricity. Installation for solar hot water systems takes approximately 1-3 days. According to the company, the longer installation times are due to the installation of the leak-proof mounting system and to making sure the wiring is hidden as much as possible. Some minor inconveniences can also be expected by consumers as contractors perform some wiring work inside the residence as well.
