Check for indicator lights

Locate the system controls and ensure these lights are on and solid:

  1. Look for a solid green light to indicate production.
  2. Look for a solid blue light to indicate communication.

Both of these lights should be on. If there are any flashing lights, make sure all switches are in the correct position. See further steps to ensure all switches are in the correct position.


Turn on your solar breaker

Locate your main electrical panel and look for the solar breaker (indicated by a sticker/label). Ensure the breaker is in the ‘on’ position.


Turn on your AC Disconnect

Locate your AC Disconnect unit. Check that the lever on the right side is up and in the ‘on’ position.


Check the red toggle on the inverter

Above the circular black switch and to the left is a smaller red toggle switch (outlined in blue). This should be in the middle position facing straight up and down.

Note: Please avoid pushing this completely to the left. This will begin a pairing cycle which will result in the inverter taking longer to completely turn on.


Ensure solid green and blue lights

If you must move a position of any of the above, wait an hour for the lights to be solid green and solid blue. 


Your system is now ready to start producing

Once all the steps are completed your system will be ready to start producing solar power! Important: You may not see your system producing right away. Our system monitoring team will check back within 5 business days and reach out if your system requires extra support.
