Safely completing solar projects of any kind requires advanced design, electrical and construction expertise, and is therefore best left to an experienced solar professional to complete on a homeowner’s behalf. Further, in nearly all areas building and electrical permits are required to legally install and operate a solar system, and local utilities must be formerly engaged in order for a solar system to be interconnected to the grid. Local turn-key solar contractors are best suited to lead all of these and other activities. Therefore, we strongly recommend that homeowner’s plan and complete their Brooklyn Solar Canopy project in close coordination with a qualified solar professional who is licensed to operate in their area. BSCC will coordinate with and support the solar installation company chosen by the homeowner, or introduce them to a solar company within our network if one is available in their area.
