Solar Maintenance

Solar Panels are generally self-cleaning however other substances such as bird droppings and dust can build up over time and impact on the amount of electricity generated by a module. Solar panels generally require very little maintenance since there are no moving parts. Problems that potentially can occur are;

  • Deterioration of cable insulation over time
  • Failure of defective components
  • Components filing with water
  • Corrosion
  • Animals chewing on cables
  • Damage from natural disasters.
  • Damage from home renovations
  • Incompetent installation
  • Dc isolator fires

Having a professional inspect a system can result in problems being identified and rectified before they become worse.
