Prevent faults in your solar
Maintaining your solar ensures that it's operating correctly, optimises its performance and keeps the system safe.
Hot spots and microcracks are the most common faults that can occur in your solar, and you can reduce the chances of both by regularly cleaning your solar panels from dirt and grime. Hot spots occur when dirt accrues on a panel, placing extra load on cleaner areas of the panel. This can lead to microcracks in the panel, compromising the system.
Beyond regular cleaning, your monitoring system can be a good way to check the health of your solar and ensuring that its output is what you expect.
Apart from cleaning panels yourself, make sure you leave any regular system health checks and technical maintenance work of your solar to a qualified tradesperson.
