One of the most pleasing benefits of solar energy systems is that they require less maintenance compared to other renewable energy sources. They do not have any moving parts and can be completely independent to function on their own. However, as time flies, you also need to be aware on whether your solar is functioning to its maximum capacity. One way to ensure this is to schedule your solar power system for routine inspection and maintenance at least once a year.
Your solar system will send you signals
Noticed an increase in your monthly electric bill even though you are using the same daytime appliances ever since? You may want to check if your solar panels have accumulated dirt over time. There are a lot of environmental and external factors that may affect a PV system’s performance such as dust accumulation, soiling, or bird deposits that we cannot really avoid. Prolonged dirt accumulation, rain, and the Philippines’ hot and humid weather may cause cementing. These particles will eventually cause performance loss due to shading, or permanent damages such as scratches and deterioration to solar panels in the long run.
You may also need to check if your inverters are working properly as intended by checking their built-in screens or through online monitoring. Online monitoring can give you a real-time preview and information regarding your system and its harvest. Some can even detect a solar panel that is not working properly which can save a lot of time in identifying and resolving the problem of your system.
Maintaining your solar energy system
Cleaning your solar panels is very easy and anyone can do it as long as you observe the proper safety procedures. With soap and running water, you can easily remove any accumulated dirt from the surface. Avoid using harsh cleaners and pointed objects to remove debris to avoid permanent damages. Some hardened particles are more difficult to remove so observe extreme caution when dealing with these kinds of residues.
Aside from your solar panels, you might also want to check your solar inverters for any loose screws or terminals, and in some cases, cable or material damages caused by rodents eating wires. Keeping your system in check and in the right working condition is very important if we want to continuously reap the maximum benefits of solar energy.
