The federal government rebate can be claimed by your solar provider, so you won’t have to do anything in this regard. However, depending on which state you reside in you may have to apply before installation to be eligible to claim the state government rebates. Do not get tricked by pushy sales guys. Make sure you know which rebates apply in your state and how can you qualify and claim them.

Once all pre-installation approvals have been obtained you can simply go ahead with the installation. Most solar providers can complete the installation within a day or two. Make sure that you confirm the CEC accreditation status of the installers before installation commences. You want to make sure who ever gets on your roof is fully qualified, experienced, accredited and fully insured.
