Electrical Wiring Diagrams from Wholesale Solar
Due to variations in permitting requirements we recommend you contact your local building authority to confirm permitting and installation requirements prior to ordering any equipment.
For critical installation details please reference all installation manuals and local codes.
What are Electrical Wiring Diagrams?
Wholesale Solar’s electrical Wiring Diagrams are CAD (computer-aided design) drawings which show the electrical sequence of all equipment in a system. An electrical diagram is an invaluable resource during the permitting process and system installation. An electrical diagram will be required when applying for your permit and for final inspection.
What do Electrical Wiring Diagrams Cost?
In most cases, the cost of a standard electrical diagram is included in the price of our packaged systems. Our technical support department can customize these drawings for a small fee. Contact your sales technician for details and custom diagram pricing.
Ordering Standalone Diagrams
If you need to provide a wiring diagram to obtain a permit before purchasing your system, we can sell you the wiring diagram for a small fee. This fee is non-refundable, but it is credited toward your purchase should you choose to buy your system from us.
