How to know when you panels need serviced

If the output of your solar panels begins to decline, you may monitor it through an application. An obstruction, such as debris, may be causing the reduced energy output, resulting in an inability to generate the standard amount of electricity. Incorporating a monitoring system into your solar panel configuration allows you to track daily energy production as well as production over time. 

However, many issues we observe with solar panel upkeep involves an expert eye to identify the problem. Our solar panel experts and electricians on staff are able to accurately identify power draw issues and resolve them.

Solar Panel Cleaning

As a rule of thumb, we recommend cleaning your solar panels twice per year.

In Oregon, we recommend that you clean your panels more frequently than twice a year.
That’s once at the start of summer to clear off any spring pollen/debris, and once towards the end of summer to remove any dust that built up over the summer months.

Regular cleaning not only ensures optimal energy production, but it also extends the lifespan of your solar panels.
These times are when you may tend to notice a drop in production (5-10%), or you see visible build-up of pollen, dirt, dust, or plant material.
Cleaning your panels is a simple process that typically involves using a soft-bristled brush and a mild soap solution. Avoid using abrasive materials or harsh chemicals that can damage the surface of the panels.

Frequently Asked Questions For Solar Maintenance

You should clean your solar panels between two and four times a year, depending on your environment. Luckily for Oregon, it rains a lot and this can naturally wash away dirt and debris, but during dry periods or if you live in an area with a lot of dust or pollen, you may need to clean them more often.

Using harsh chemicals, abrasives, or high-pressure washers to clean the panel glass can damage the protective coating and void the warranty. Stick to mild soap and soft sponges or brushes with plain water. Some warranties require distilled or purified water to avoid mineral deposits. Professional cleaning may be recommended to avoid damaging the panels and voiding the warranty.

To know when your solar panels need maintenance, monitor their performance and contact your installer if you see a dip in electricity production levels. Do not attempt any internal solar cell maintenance as it may void the warranty and put your system at risk. We can provide information on why businesses choose to use solar energy for their operations.
