Solar Maintenance Process

The process to keep your system operating in peak condition

Repair And Maintenance
Process 1
Solar health examination
  • A thorough report on the state of your system today, highlighting any problems that might be present or in the future.
  • A professional opinion and a cost estimate for any repairs or corrections needed.
  • If you need to file a warranty claim and the manufacturer requests proof of routine maintenance inspections to support the warranty, maintenance reports may be essential.

WHAT REQUIRES CHECKING?

  • Examine the inverter and take readings
  • Results of the installation VOC test and the ISC test
  • Irradiance and resistance to insulation
  • Examine panels for visual flaws, configuration, specifications, and array earthing.
  • Check the installation integrity and corrosion of frames and racking.
  • Check the integrity of the cables, connectors, and conduit.
  • Check the roof fixings.
  • Remove physical debris and other fire hazards, and check junction boxes for water ingress on isolators.
  • Look for any roof damage or leaks.
  • Check the connections, ratings, brand, polarity, and integrity of the AC and DC isolators.
  • Check MSB for the size, connections, and metre installation of CB and AC cables.
  • Provide a thorough report with the results of the tests, pictures, advice, and a price (if required)

PLAN FOR SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE
  • The panels in your system typically have a 25-year warranty, while the inverter typically has a 10-year warranty. However, without routine maintenance, this does not guarantee the system's effectiveness and output.
  • Regular inspections can ensure the longevity of your system's performance and help you avoid expensive faults.
  • A comprehensive condition report will be provided for each scheduled inspection
  • Select a yearly or biannual maintenance plan.
  • If you need to file a warranty claim and the manufacturer requests proof of routine maintenance inspections to support the warranty, maintenance reports may be essential.

WHAT CAN OVER TIME DECREASE YOUR SYSTEM'S EFFICIENCY?

What might harm your inverters?
Particularly in the hot Australian climate, solar inverters are prone to overheating because they generate their own heat. A Fronius inverter, for example, has a built-in fan for cooling, which can significantly increase the lifespan of your inverter. Additionally, it’s crucial to make sure your inverter is adequately shielded from direct sunlight during the day in order to maintain effective AC power output.

An inverter may arc as a result of loose connections and wiring. A release of electrical energy known as an electrical arc can result in an explosion or fire. Your inverter will run more safely and effectively if connections are checked and tightened frequently.

What might harm solar panels?
A panel may be broken by falling debris or tree branches, causing obvious damage that would necessitate panel replacement. Strong weather conditions, such as wind, hail, or lightning, can nonetheless result in minor external damage to solar panels, which can then lead to internal structural problems that are harder to spot but have a significant impact on a panel’s overall output.
WHAT DO SOLAR PANELS' HOTSPOTS DO?
As the sun shines on solar panels, electric current is produced. Any flaws in the solar panel, such as a heavy accumulation of dirt and leaves, microcracks, or improperly soldered joints, can lead to an uneven distribution of heat and the emergence of hot spots. These can eventually ignite a fire and leave “burn marks” on the panel.
IS RAIN ABLE TO CLEAN SOLAR PANELS?
If your solar panels are tilted, a heavy downpour will help to rinse everyday grime and dirt from them. However, rain won’t wash away dried-on animal droppings, heavy dirt, or leaves, just like it won’t make your car spotless. Since water won’t naturally drain from flat panels, regular cleaning is necessary. Cleaning can decrease hotspots and microcracks in any system, increase lifespan, and improve overall performance.
