Maintenance of Solar panels

By September 29, 2015News

You could be losing money due to the lack of performance from you solar system.

Do you have a maintenance contract for your solar panels?

Do you think you might be paying too much for it?

Why do I need solar panel maintenance?

Solar panels are wonderfully reliable – so reliable in fact, that it makes sense to have a solar panel maintenance contract. Why?  Because in the business of your day to day affairs, you may just forget that they are there as they work away at generating free electricity.  Although solar panels don’t need a lot of maintenance they do need some – to make sure that they are generating at their maximum efficiency.

Your PV system may get by without inspection or maintenance, but your investment will be more likely to live up to expectations if it is regularly inspected. We can offer a full suite of inspection and testing services, ranging from a visual inspection by our trained installers to electrical tests of the circuits. Such maintenance will identify lingering under performance issues as well as significant equipment failures. If required, our technicians can then recommend and implement a solution.

What is involved in a solar panel maintenance contract?

Every system and client has different requirements, but here is an example of the service levels provided:

  • Annual cleaning to keep efficiencies maximised, especially where bird soiling or atmospheric pollution has degraded the surface of the panel.
  • Visual inspection of all panels
  • Photovoltaic module string tests
  • Inverter system checks
  • Junction box, isolator, distribution board and cabling inspection
  • Meter check
  • Labelling/schematic check
  • Energy production analysis
  • Voltage and current check
  • Production of maintenance report
  • Roof condition alert

So how much does this cost?

We don’t charge the earth for what is normally a straight forward, albeit technical task, and you will find our rates very competitive.

You can choose from different grades of servicing to suit your requirements from just simply cleaning of your solar to one of the following maintenance packages.
