Solar Panel Maintenace For Business
How often should solar panels be serviced?
For commercial solar PV systems, it is recommended to clean the solar panels at least once every 12 months for optimum performance and maintenance of electrical compliance.
The frequency of cleaning may vary depending on the location and environmental conditions surrounding the solar panels. For example, solar panels located in areas with high levels of dust, debris, or bird droppings may require more frequent cleaning.
Similarly, solar panels located near industrial or agricultural areas may require more frequent cleaning due to the presence of pollutants or chemicals in the air.
Ultimately, investing in regular cleaning and maintenance can help to ensure that the solar PV system performs at its best, maximizes its output, and maintains compliance with relevant safety standards. Learn more about the benefits of solar panel maintenance.
Do solar panels need any maintenance?
Regular maintenance can identify and address any issues with the system promptly, minimizing the risk of breakdowns and costly repairs.
Regular checks can ensure that the wiring, connections, and other components of the system are functioning correctly, reducing the risk of safety hazards and non-compliance fines.
This helps to prolong the lifespan of the solar PV system, reducing the need for costly replacements in the future.
Investing in regular maintenance can help organisations to meet their environmental sustainability goals by ensuring that their solar PV system is performing at its best, minimizing energy waste, and reducing their carbon footprint.
How do you maintain a solar panel?
For large-scale commercial solar PV systems, it’s more cost-effective to hire a cleaning robot that can automatically clean hundreds of panels in one go, restoring the panels’ performance.
Additionally, it’s important to check for any physical damage to the panels, such as cracked or broken glass, and have them repaired if necessary.
