 Cleaning solar panels – do dirty solar panels really matter?

Dirty solar panels need cleaning

Dirty solar panels need cleaning, otherwise, it is costing you money!

Yes, the external surfaces of your panels are designed to capture sunlight and convert it to usable electricity so anything that hinders the ability of the solar panels to capture sunlight will decrease the amount of generated electricity.   This decrease will cut into your energy savings.

Why is Regular Maintenance and Servicing necessary for your solar panels?

  • Your purchase of solar panels represents a significant investment.
  • Allowing solar panels to become dirty will affect the efficiency and the amount of electricity they generate.
  • Regularly cleaning your Solar Panels will ensure maximum performance.
  • Solar panels are susceptible to all the elements of nature.   During the nighttime moisture condenses, leading to water spots facilitating quicker accumulation of dirt, bugs, insects, and bird droppings.

In coastal areas more frequent cleaning and maintenance may be required due to salt build-up.

  • Dirt and dust particles
  • Debris from trees
  • Pollen
  • Bird droppings
  • Salt build up in coastal areas
  • Exhaust emissions
  • Insects excretion

 

Replacement of faulty switches or DC isolators.

 

DC roof isolators

A common fault with solar power systems is that the roof or wall DC isolator fails.   This can have the effect of stopping generation of power or causing a fire.  It is MOST important that faulty switches are replaced immediately.   We can replace with a newer version of the same, or change to the latest designs.

Inverter repairs, replacements and testing.

If the inverter has a fault, you are not generating power.   The bills go up, and you have no grid feed income.   We can service inverters, fixing those with minor faults, or sending to our repair centre if a reliable brand, otherwise we can replace with a new highly efficient, latest technology inverter.

Removal of solar panels for renovation, or roof replacement.

  •  We are experienced at carefully removing and safely storing your solar power system, whilst renovation or roof replacement takes place.
  •  Fast and efficient service, at a reasonable cost.
  •  Usually, the solar system is stored on-site, but we can arrange safe storage space if there is insufficient room or security.
  •  As the project nears completion, contact us again for the re-installation of your solar power system, to the latest wiring standards.
  •  We are very particular about safety and will advise you of the condition of the system being removed, and whether it is better economy to reinstall it or to consider replacing it.
