There are specializes companies that just do solar panel installation and can install different types and different brands of solar panels for you. If you are going to have your solar panels professionally installed but you want to cut costs wherever you can try contacting the solar panel manufacturer directly. If you buy solar panels directly from the manufacturer you can save money on the up front cost of the panels and then you can hire a private solar panel installation company to transport and install the panels.

If you choose to install solar roof shingles you can easily install those yourself or if you prefer you can hire a roofer a do it for you. A regular roofer should be able to install the solar roof shingles but you should look around for a roofer that has had some experience with solar shingles.
