Contact The Team

Start by requesting a free quote. You can expect to hear from one of our solar experts shortly after to discuss how solar can work for your home and routine. If your home qualifies for a solar installation, we’ll schedule a free in-home assessment for a closer look.


In-Home Consultation

During your in-home assessment, an experienced Pink Energy consultant will evaluate your property for things like shade cover, roof angle and your home’s location. We’ll also review your electric bills to develop an understanding of your current electricity usage and how solar panels can power your home most effectively. From this, we’ll deliver a proposal for your custom solar system. Upon signing your contract, installation preparation can begin.


Solar Installation

When installation day arrives, a team of Pink Energy installers will work to get your solar system up and running while protecting your roof and home from damage. In as little as one to two days, we’ll have your installation complete and ready for thorough testing. Depending on a passed inspection, we’ll clean up our workspace. Then, all that’s left to do is request a meter switch through your utility provider—you’re on your way to potential savings!4

Solar Panel Installation FAQs

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

Pink Energy’s 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 Columbus?

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 Columbus?

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 Columbus?

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.
