The Enphase micro inverters make the install very simple and clean. I did all the paperwork with Utility company myself, the Installers didn't do it right and I also designed the second part of the install. That is why I got installers so I could avoid the paperwork but Its not that hard just takes awhile. When you order parts from a solar company they will do the engineered drawing for you. Waiting to see results but all the graphs show my electricity almost completely paid for.
