At Pink Energy, we know that solar energy isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution. To make sure we meet your home’s unique energy needs, we’ve developed an installation process designed to fit your lifestyle. Here’s how our 3-step solar installation process works:


Contact The Team

Begin by requesting a free quote through our online form. You’ll be contacted by a Pink Energy expert who will evaluate how a solar system could work for your home. If you qualify, we’ll schedule a free in-home consultation to further assess your property.


In-Home Consultation

During your consultation, a solar representative will visit your home to evaluate your roof’s access to sunlight, the amount of shade cover on your property and more. We’ll also review your electricity bills to better understand how many solar panels are needed to meet your energy goals. We’ll then develop a proposal for your custom system; with your approval, we’ll prepare for installation day.


Solar Installation

When installation day arrives, a team of professional installers will work to install your solar panels quickly and carefully. In as little as a day or two, we’ll have your solar system installed and tested for efficacy. Before leaving your property, we’ll clean up our workspace. Next, you’ll receive a new meter from your utility provider and begin enjoying the benefits of solar power!

Solar Panel Installation FAQs

How much does it cost to install solar panels in Louisville?

Pink Energy solar panel systems are not one size fits all. We create custom solar systems for each customer’s unique energy needs. As such, it’s hard to give an estimate of what your solar panel installation could cost. However, generally the price will depend on your home’s current energy needs, what direction your home faces and how much sunlight your roof receives in addition to other such factors.

Can I install solar panels myself?

It’s possible to do, but we do not recommend it. Pink Energy’s qualified installation teams have the experience needed to ensure your panels are installed properly and in the best position to gather sunlight.

How long does it take to install solar panels?

Our installation team only takes a day or two to have your solar panels up and running. It’s a quick process!

Do I need permission to install solar panels in Louisville?

Yes, some permits are required to install solar panels. It’s likely your local government has some requirements in place before installation occurs. Pink Energy’s experts will help you with the majority of the permits as part of the installation process.

Does installing solar panels void your roof warranty?

In nearly all cases, your roof warranty should remain intact. As long as the installation team did their job right (and our teams are experts), you shouldn’t have any problems with your roof’s warranty. We recommend that you should always double-check with your roof’s manufacturer or installer to confirm.

What permits do I need to install solar panels in Louisville?

Permits needed to install solar panels vary by your own local government’s mandates. Your local government and local utility companies likely have specific requirements in place to satisfy local building and electrical codes. As a general rule, you can expect to have to file for a building permit, an electrical permit and possibly a solar photovoltaic (PV) permit.

Can my HOA stop me from installing solar panels in Louisville?

This varies by neighborhood. However, you can expect to face some pushback from your HOA if your solar panels will face public spaces, such as an HOA-maintained park or road. Pink Energy will work with you to ensure that your solar panels are up to code and satisfy HOA requirements if at all possible!

Can solar panels be installed on a metal roof?

Absolutely! Metal roofs offer a stable surface for solar panel installation, so there should be no problem in having both.
