The Ultimate Guide To Solar Maintenance

Getting a start on the best plan forward

Getting a good education is always a good place to start.  Sales people generally don’t tell you much at the time of your sale.  There is a great deal unqualified opinion on the internet.

Rather than presenting a ‘one size fits all’ solar maintenance plan, we work with you to understand your system and environent to give you the best advice and plan for the future. Our Ultimate Solar Maintenance Guide will show you a range of things to consider. By reading it you’ll have a good understanding of the challenges your own system faces.

Once you’ve got a handle on what a solar maintenance service is, we recommend you set a date in the future to do your first service.  Use this service as a reference point.

After your first service, review the report and decide when you think another service would be good and put a date in your calendar.  From then it is just a matter of monitoring what is going on.

A simple plan that will keep your home safe, maximise your savings and give you peace of mind.

Using a solar panel cleaning service is not enough

Window cleaners lack industry experience

Most solar panel cleaning services originate from a window cleaning business. While this gets your panels clean and improves solar production there is a gap in solar industry knowledge that could put your panel warranties and the cleaners lives at risk.

Solar panels carry live electricity and unless safety procedures are in place, adding water, height and tripping hazards like hoses can be a nightmare recipe. All maintenance staff should have the correct industry training to safely work with solar panels.

If the incorrect cleaning methods are used or the panel manufacturer instructions are not adhered to, warranties can also be at risk.

Regular electrical inspections are important

Your system should have regular electrical inspections. Cabling, Isolators and damaged panels need to be identified and reported to you. By checking electrical hazards, your home and family are not at risk.

Shade issues will cause production loss. In most cases, if just one panel is shaded your solar production loss is 50% – 100%. Knowledge of your system configuration helps accurately report these issues.

These are just a few examples of the importance and value of solar industry experience.These are just a few examples of the importance and value of solar industry experience.
