Solar PV Maintenance – Why you can’t afford not to have it

The false elusion through the years on Solar PV is that once you have the technology installed, it will look after itself for the next 20 years.

Correct? Yes – But only to a certain degree, but like any other technology, things degrade, fail and also become obsolete.

Over the past 5 years we have seen a huge number of businesses and domestic households contact us to rectify their systems due to them not generating sufficiently or not generating at all.

Just recently we have attended a large Solar PV installation which had not been generating for a number of months with a substantial financial loss. With regular maintenance, the system would have carried on working and generating an income.

What our annual Solar PV Maintenance includes

Modules are free from dirt/leaves, bird droppings etc.

Inspect all mounting framework and fixings for integrity and ensure that the correct mounting system has been used and is safely secure.

No shading issues have occurred since the installation.

Ventilation space under the array is not obstructed and DC cables are securely clipped.

Check that the system is correctly designed if installed by a third party.

Check the roof integrity.

Test over current devices are in good operating condition.

All electrical connections are secure and free from corrosion.

Enclosures are secure and IP rating is maintained.

Check earthing system is intact and up to standard.

Check that the insulation of live parts is undamaged.

Inspect inverter(s) are operating correctly and that the generation meter and inverter readings tally up with the each other.

At the end of the inspection we will send you the following:

  • Full test report of the solar installation.
  • Assessment on the performance of your system against official estimates.
  • A 48 hr. call out (to ensure your system downtime is kept to a minimum should your system fail for whatever reason, to maximise valuable FIT’s payments).
  • An annual Certificate of conformity.
