The Importance of Solar Maintenance for Your Coachella Valley Solar

Maintenance and Cleaning for Your Solar Panels Prolongs Lifespan and Improves Efficiency

Preventative Inspections and Solar Maintenance

Preventative maintenance will help to keep your system running efficiently with optimal output while watching for unexpected minor inconsistencies and making minimal repairs to prevent them from becoming bigger issues.

Annual preventative maintenance may include:

  • Visual inspection
  • Panel surveillance for cracks, mounting stability and integrity, disconnections, and surface damage
  • Wiring inspection
  • System component inspection: inverters, batteries, and connections
  • Performance control checks: energy output testing and tracking)

Solar Panel Cleaning

Cleaning is an integral part of solar panel maintenance. Regular panel cleanings can remove contaminants that inhibit solar panel output, maintain efficiency, and prevent damage caused by debris.

Professional solar panel cleaning service will remove:

  • Dirt
  • Dust
  • Debris
  • Pollen
  • Bird droppings
  • Water spots
  • Plant debris & leaves

If you opt to monitor and clean your panels yourself, follow the rules of thumb below:

  • Clean your panels when they are cool to the touch to prevent cracking from sudden temperature changes caused by cold water hitting hot panels
  • Use soft material like a soft brush or squeegee and gentle detergent to clean your panels
  • Only clean under safe conditions with someone there to monitor you (use safety equipment to prevent falls)
  • Follow all manufacturer instructions for inspection and cleaning
  • Check panels for dust and debris to determine if they need an unscheduled cleaning service
