Solar panels are an incredible way to utilize the power of the sun to power your home. With a simple installation on the roof of your property, you could find yourself paying much less for your energy bills, while also making a small amount of money back. This is great news for your pocket, and the environment. But do solar panels require a lot of maintenance? And how can you keep on top of this? Here at the Eco Renewables Group, we are solar power experts. We work across the region, from Nelson to Penrith, and nationwide, to provide personalized solar power solutions. As a result, we have produced this guide to maintaining solar panels for maximum efficiency.
Solar panels and maintenance
Unlike other forms of renewable energy, that involve a lot of moving parts, like wind turbines, solar panels have no moving parts. This means that they generally need alot less maintenance than other renewable options. That’s part of the reason why they are perfect for homes.
However, although they dont need a lot of maintenance, they do need some. A basic check and clean once or twice a year should be sufficient to keep your panels working effectively.
Maintaining Solar panels for maximum efficiency
It is important to be aware that your solar panels can only perform at their maximum efficiency, and be cost effective, when they are working at their maximum output. As a result, any dirt, debris or leaves that are blocking your solar panels can have an impact on the amount of power your solar panels produce. And this will have a knock on effect on how much money you will save on bills.
Consequently, bi-annual checks and maintenance should not be missed.
