Cleaning and Maintenance for Your Solar Energy System
Maintenance for your solar panels and system consists of cleaning requirements, inspection, and completing any potential repairs. With proper care, your system will last well into the future.
Cleaning Your Solar Panels
Cleaning requirements for your solar panels are generally based on how much natural rainfall your area receives and the installation tilt of your panels. A less aggressive tilt causes more buildup of dust, dirt, debris, and rainwater that won’t roll off as easily. The panels are meant to easily shed dirt, water, and debris, but professional cleaning can help to keep your panels clear and improve output.
Professional panel cleaners use mild, panel-safe cleaning solutions and skilled techniques to clean your panels. Twice yearly cleaning is recommended unless you experience high winds with excessive dust and dirt depositing on your panels.
Inspection and Maintenance
The electrical and mechanical connections and components of your solar energy system should be inspected at least once a year. Inspection technicians will look for any corrosion, damages, wear and tear, or disconnections that could inhibit your system’s output. Professional panel inspection (especially on roof-mounted panels) is typically included in the maintenance inspection process.
Most solar energy system inverters and batteries have an internal monitoring system, some even connect to your phone for easy viewing. Monitoring system output can help mediate any sudden changes and alert you to possible problems.
