Solar PV Maintenance

Solar PV Maintenance

Generally speaking a PV system needs little maintenance. However, like all installations regular maintenance will ensure they keep producing efficiently as per the figures quoted on installation.

With several years experience, TLGEC are ideally placed to ensure your system is kept up to date.

With a lot of Solar PV installers disappearing we are also happy to take on the maintenance of your system, even if we didn’t install them.

Are all of your Solar Panels are working as they should?

  • Have your Solar Panels been cleaned in the last 12 months?
  • Do you know what condition your Solar PV system wiring is in?
  • Do you have peace of mind that your investment is protected, was installed correctly and producing what it should do?

If the answer is “No” to any of these questions, contact The Little Green Energy Company today to find out about one of our Solar PV maintenance packages, or to book a maintenance visit.

Maintenance Packages

We currently offer two different types of maintenance packages, below is a brief outline of each.

Solar PV Maintenance Package 1:

Electrical Inspection & Installation Check

  • Check all electrical connections and wiring.
  • Check all framing and fixings are secure and tight if accessible.
  • Check electrical components such as inverter, isolators and generation meter are all functioning as they should and no faults are present.
  • Generation comparison compared to initial specification/previous years (if data available).
  • Re-commissioning of the system.

Solar PV Maintenance Package 2:

Electrical Inspection & Panel Clean

  • All of the services mentioned in Package 1.
  • Cleaning of all the solar panels installed by a specialist company to make sure that your system keeps performing as it should.

Solar Panel Cleaning

  • Full professional clean of the solar panels

  • Inspection of the integrity of the glass of the solar panels where possible – breakages have occurred from bird damage and external sources such as children using the solar panels as target practice for stones and other projectiles. Golf balls seem to be another favourite!

  • If possible, please attach a photograph showing the face of the house where the solar panels are mounted and the panels themselves. This will speed up the process of arranging your clean.

There has been a noticeable increase in window cleaners offering solar panel cleaning as part of their service. If you are looking to have a window cleaner clean your solar panels, it is very important that you see their certificate of insurance and their certificate of training. A solar panel cleaning professional will be able to present you with certificates for both. Your solar panels are an expensive investment and it is wise to ensure they are cleaned by insured and trained professionals.
