Solar PV systems require little maintenance due to few moving parts, however they do go wrong. It is important to check your generation meter at least once a month to make sure the readings increase. there is also a red flashing light which flashes faster the more power you generate.
When a Solar PV system breaks down this can be for a number of reasons:-
- The Inverter has failed due to something wrong inside it
- Moisture is getting into connections on the roof
- Generation meter has failed
- Battery has tripped (If you have one with battery storage)
- Connections have overheated due to poor installation.
Inverters are the heart of your Solar PV system and are usually the cause of your Solar FV fault. Most come with a standard 5 year warranty, however they can come with a warranty up to 20 years.
If you have your Solar PV panels cleaned, make sure you use an experience Solar PV cleaning company. A standard window cleaner will not understand the importance of using soft brushes and only use cleaning chemicals suitable for Solar PV panels.
