What do I need to know about Solar panels installs?

It's a hot new trend now, and I'm thinking about adding it to my list of offerings, but I haven't done this before - anyone have any callouts or things to know about getting into solar and solar panel installations? Many thanks in advance!

    Thanks ! So, assuming I can be the lead (#6) if I have completed tasks 1-5? Appreciate it.

    To see where it is, determine the elevation of the solar panel according to the dimension of the geographic location. It is not about 10 degrees in the southwest of the tracking system, but also a reliable grounding and lightning protection. In addition, the solar cell board is determined by the voltage of your system.
