Signs solar panel maintenance or repair may be necessary

There are some obvious warning signs that you may be experiencing and should look out for that may show that your solar panel system could have a fault.

A common fault we regularly see are problems with solar inverters. We can assess and replace a wide range of inverters from brands such as ABB Power One, SMA, SolarEdge, Sunny Boy, Mastervolt, Ginlong Solis, Growatt, SolaX, Huawei, Eversolar and Fronius, to name just some.

Keep an eye on your solar generation

Normally solar panel systems perform perfectly. The panels sit on your roof, convert sunlight into DC electricity, and then your solar inverter turns the DC electricity into AC electricity to power your home, electric car, and whatever else you have plugged in. Ideally, solar panel maintenance, or overall system repair, should be unnecessary.

Usually the first clue that something has gone wrong is that the reading on your solar meter, known as a generation meter, stops going up. It often means something has happened to the inverter. It could be the trip switch – just flick it up again. Or the inverter has failed in which case you will need an electrician to come and look at it. Inverters do all the electrical heavy-lifting and unfortunately they do have a tendency to fail after a few years.

You can also take a look at the surface of your panels now and again (don’t fall off the ladder!). If they are getting dirty, solar panel cleaning might be in order. Dirty panels won’t stop your system from working, but will reduce panel output.

Battery storage

Do you have battery storage linked up to your solar PV system? You may, for example, have a Tesla Powerwall or storage manufactured by LG Chem, Sonnen, Alpha Smile, SolaX, BYD, Enphase, etc.

Battery storage allows you to store surplus solar electricity and then use it later in the day. You can also charge batteries with cheap, off-peak electricity at night and use it during the day when electricity rates are higher.

If you are having any problems with your battery storage, or want us to check it’s working correctly, we can run diagnostics while we are fixing your solar panel system. It’s important to ensure the battery charges and discharges when it should and at the right rate.
