What are the maintenance requirements for Solar panels?

Solar PV panels are relatively low-maintenance devices, but regular upkeep is necessary to ensure they continue to operate efficiently and have a long lifespan. Proper maintenance helps maximise energy production and protects your investment. Here are some essential maintenance tasks for solar PV panels:

Regular Cleaning: Dust, dirt, leaves, bird droppings, and other debris can accumulate on the surface of the solar panels over time, reducing their efficiency. Cleaning the panels periodically, especially in areas with little rainfall, is crucial. Use a soft brush or a gentle stream of water to remove debris. Avoid abrasive materials or high-pressure washers that could damage the panel surface.

Monitor Performance: Keep track of the system’s performance regularly. Our solar solutions are equipped with monitoring apps that allow you to check the energy production and detect any significant drops in output, which could indicate an issue that needs attention.
