Solar Panel Maintenance

I bet when you bought your solar system you may well have been told it was maintenance free. I hear this every day.

But the reality is, your solar panels are like the windows in your home or car; they become dirty and then it is hard to see out of them and so, you clean them.

It is the same with solar panels. When they become dirty the system performance can reduce up to 25%. Rain won’t clean your solar panels, just as rain won't clean your car.

Possible build ups on your panels could include the following:

  • Dirt and dust
  • Smog/pollution from vehicles
  • Saps, pollens and debris from trees
  • Bird droppings
  • Ocean sprays of salt
  • Commercial and industrial residues

There are people out there who claim to clean your panels and improve your system performance.

However, if these people are not electricians, how would they know, if all they do is clean the panels with water and a sponge?

You may have a fault in a panel.

If these people have no means of testing your system, then you have just wasted your money.

Don’t just have someone clean your panels without conducting a performance test first.

We are all qualified electricians and are accredited by the Clean Energy Council.

We take the worry out of maintaining your panels with a scheduled maintenance cleaning plan. We come to you, clean your Solar panels, inspect the condition, test the system power output, check the rail system and finally, inspect the condition of the installation from top to bottom. We use chemical free technology to ensure there is no damage to the panels and most importantly, there is no pollution into your rain water.

We make sure your system complies with Australian Standards and we also produce a before and after report on the performance of your system.
