Maintenance of your system

Because they have no moving parts, solar modules are extremely reliable, with an expected life span of several decades. They are also self cleaning and require very little in the way of maintenance. However adhering to the following points will help keep your system as efficient as possible;

  •  The inverter should be kept clean and free of dust and moisture at all times
  •  Keep an eye out for vegetation that may in future shade the solar panels
  •  Check the LED codes on the front of the inverter regularly as these indicate whether the solar system is working
  •  An annual inspection & maintenance check of your system is recommended. Please contact us on 1300 074 669 to arrange an inspection.

The owner of a system must NOT undertake maintenance of a system other than simple cleaning. If you believe the system requires maintenance or is not functioning please contact us immediately.

System maintenance timetable:

once a week:

  •  Check inverter is operating.
  •  Check inverter is recording exported energy.

every 3 months:

  •  Check for panel shading, as shading reduces performance.
  •  Check for tree litter behind panels and framing.
  •  Check for build-up of dust or bird droppings.

every year:

  • Professional system performance and maintenance check.

Any work on your system is required to be carried out by a licensed electrician accredited by the Clean Energy Council to work on Solar Systems. Please note that your installation warranty is voided if work is carried out after installation by anyone other than our installation team, as we cannot be sure work has been carried out to our high standards.

The solar system must be shut down before commencing any electrical work or building works which may come in to contact with its electrical cables. All signage and warnings must be observed.

Cleaning your system:

Generally, the solar panels clean themselves during rainy weather. However, a layer of dust can form if there is a prolonged dry spell or in particularly dusty environments. This could reduce the amount of energy produced by the solar system. Your system output has been calculated to take account of this dust.

Do not climb on the roof to clean the solar panels, as you could fall if not correctly trained and equipped for the task. Use a qualified person to clean your solar panels.

Do not use any high-pressure cleaner or chemical cleaning product on the surface of the solar panels. The panels only require the use of plain water at mains pressure or less. Particular care must be taken to ensure all electric components, such as cables, connectors, generator junction boxes etc. remain dry.

Before cleaning the array, please follow THE SHUTDOWN PROCEDURE

DO NOT ATTEMPT TO CLEAN OR COME INTO CONTACT WITH THE SURFACE OF A PV MODULE WITH A BROKEN GLASS FACE, THIS COULD RESULT IN A DANGEROUS SHOCK
