Why do commercial solar panels need maintenance?

Although solar panels are low maintenance overall, keeping on top of regular maintenance is still necessary to keep panels in optimal working condition.
<p style=”color: #f7941d;”><strong>Keep on top of solar panel maintenance for panels that last up to 30 years.</strong></p>
With a diagnostic maintenance service, you can identify and fix any low-level problems with your system before they escalate. Ultimately, the aim of maintenance is to keep panels working efficiently whilst avoiding more costly repairs and emergency servicing down the line.
<h3 style=”color: #394077;”>What can go wrong with a solar panel system?</h3>
Primarily, solar panels are known for their durability and reliability. However, like any technology, they can be subject to errors and component failure.

Below we have outlined some of the problems that commonly affect solar panels, all of which can be identified and rectified through regular maintenance:
<li>System failure due to poor quality installation</li>
<li>Damage from debris, wildlife and the elements</li>
<li>Corrosion of panel surfaces and wiring</li>
<li><a href=”/possible-problems-with-solar-panel-inverters/”>Problems with the inverter</a> (this may have a shorter lifespan than the panels themselves)</li>
<li><a href=”/solar-battery-storage/”>Solar battery</a> malfunctions</li>

When to make use of your maintenance package?

Once you have invested in a maintenance package for your solar panel system, you’ll find it much easier to keep on top of any problems.

No matter what issue you’re experiencing with your solar panels, you can call on us at any time. Some common reasons for making use of our maintenance packages include:
<li>A drop in efficiency</li>
<li>Unreliable performance</li>
<li>Visible damage to your panels or other components</li>

Commercial Maintenance FAQs

What is the maintenance for commercial solar panels?

Commercial solar panels have few moving parts, meaning they are low maintenance. However, it is recommended that they are serviced and cleaned every 12 months to ensure optimal performance.

What is included in solar panel maintenance?

Solar Service offers three different maintenance packages which provide different levels of maintenance.

The smallest package available is Bronze which gives you access to our service desk engineers and remote diagnostics. The next level is our Silver package which provides you with a yearly service, access to service desk engineers, remote diagnostics and proactive monitoring and fault resolution. The final package is our Gold one, which provides everything from the Silver package with the addition of an onsite engineer on an SLA (max three days), access to the customer support team, priority access to the technical support team and a dedicated accounts team.

Will rain clean commercial solar panels?

Yes, rain will effectively clean solar panels. However, we recommend at least once a year your panels are cleaned with warm water and a soft cloth to remove any dirt that might not be washed away by rainfall.

What is preventive maintenance of a solar system?

Preventative maintenance is a proactive strategy that involves regular maintenance of equipment where components are thoroughly cleaned and checked to reduce the risk of problems and downtime.

What is corrective maintenance for commercial solar panels?

Corrective maintenance is when an engineer repairs or replaces components that have stopped working or aren’t working as efficiently as they should be.

How do I know when my commercial solar system needs maintenance?

If you spot the following, it is recommended that you call out an engineer to complete a service or maintenance task.
<li>A drop in efficiency</li>
<li>Unreliable performance</li>

What factors can affect the performance of commercial solar panels?

Several factors can influence the performance of commercial solar panels. These include the amount of sunlight received, the angle and orientation of the panels, shading from nearby structures or vegetation, temperature variations, the cleanliness of the panels, and the efficiency of the inverter and other system components. Additionally, factors such as the quality of installation, maintenance practices, and the age of the panels can also impact their performance over time. Regular monitoring and maintenance can help optimise the performance of commercial solar panels and maximise their energy output.
