Our Process

Ohio homeowners are seeing solar more and more everyday, and are wondering if solar would make sense for them. Why wonder? We eliminate all the guesswork and take the time to evaluate your home, without a commitment of any kind, to determine if solar is right for you. If it is, and you decide to move forward, we then take the time to get it done right, assigning someone to your project so that you never have to wonder about what is happening and when. And of course, at the end, we come back out to get your stamp of approval. This is how Solar Is Freedom became the most highly rated residential solar installer in Ohio.

Evaluation Survey Evaluation Survey

Step 1

Evaluation Survey

The first thing on many homeowners’ minds when thinking about solar is this: “will it even make sense for my house?” We take care of that right away with a free, no-commitment solar evaluation. We will come out to your home, provide you with solar information, and determine if your property is suitable.

Step 2


After our evaluation, our pre-engineering team will take the information gathered and construct a custom design specifically to meet your needs. This is not a one-size-fits-all approach, but rather a calculated, tailored design that fits your energy needs and guarantees the best return on your investment.

Step 3


Once the design is complete, we come back out to give you a full, comprehensive report on what solar can do for your home. Through our presentation, we will walk you through every step of the process and all the benefits. You will have all the tools you need to make an informed decision about solar. This report and design are completely free!

Site Review

Now that we have decided to move forward with the solar installation, we come out and get everything we need to submit your net metering agreement and permit! The Solar Is Freedom will contact you and schedule one of our site inspectors to gather all necessary information. This typically takes less than an hour, and typically done within two to three weeks of signing up!

Design and Electrical Review

Once your site inspector has gathered all the necessary information needed for permitting and net metering, our internal Project Team reviews everything and compares it to the original design. Once the design has been validated and the electrical engineering review process is complete, we move onto permitting!

Permitting and Staging

The project is now past the review stage and is moved into permitting. Depending on your local Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ), this can take anywhere between two and five weeks. Once the permit is approved, we are ready to install! The Solar Is Freedom Project will prepare the materials and plan sets for the installation team.
