SOLAR PANEL CLEANING & MAINTENANCE

To ensure your Solar System is working at optimum levels, and to protect your investment, it’s important to have your Solar System maintained and cleaned by a Professional.

Regular servicing will ensure you’re receiving maximum savings on electricity bills and peace of mind your system is functioning safely and efficiently.  

Simply cleaning your solar panels can increase production by 20-30%!

Benefits of Solar Panel Cleaning & Maintenance

IMPROVE EFFICIENCY
 

Regular cleaning makes an enormous difference. There are grains of sand, dust particles, and debris in the environment, which even rainwater won’t clean.

 

These eventually

build up and contribute to wear and tear and decrease panel efficiency.

IMPROVE
ROI
TIME

Clean and well maintained panels help to achieve a faster return on your investment (ROI).

Clean panels accommodate more light reaching the cells, and in turn generate more

solar power maximising efficiency.

 

Extended periods of dirty panels can impact your ROI time.

EXTEND THE LIFE OF YOUR SYSTEM

Along with cleaning, a regular maintenance & safety program, undertaken by professionals,

will extend the lifetime of your System and ensure optimal production.

PEACE
OF MIND

 

Regular visual and electrical inspections will ensure any issues are identified and fixed early

before they pose a safety risk or lead to other problems which can be expensive to fix.

How Often Should Solar be Serviced?

The Clean Energy Council (CEC) recommends setting up an annual maintenance schedule to ensure your solar system is safe and functioning efficiently.

What should prompt a One-off Inspection of Your Solar System?

The Clean Energy Council recommends a service if you experience any of the following issues:

  • A change in production you may notice through monitoring or energy bill.

  • Warnings or alerts generated by the system through monitoring software or on the inverter itself.

  • Before moving into or buying a property with an existing system.

  • Build-up of debris – trees that drop leaves and branches on the system.

  • To check for rats, pigeons or possums etc that may be damaging your system.

SOLAR PANEL BIRD PROOFING

Benefits of
Bird Proofing Solar Panels

PROTECT YOUR SOLAR PANELS AND STOP CORROSION

Birds can damage exposed panel wiring and their droppings are acidic, especially pigeon droppings.

When droppings build up, they can start to corrode the hardware that keeps your solar panels running efficiently, and in turn reducing performance.

PREVENT ROOF DAMAGE
 

When birds nest under the panels, nesting material and feathers can create blockages and water build-up under the solar panels.

This build-up could result in water seepage into the roof sheathing and insulation on tiled roofs.

REDUCE
RISK

 

Bird proofing protection significantly reduces the risk of overall damage to your Solar System.

Signs of Bird Infestation in Your Solar Panel System

  • Gutters and drainpipes clogged with feathers or nesting materials

  • Increased bird droppings on the roof, solar panels, walls, fascias, eaves

  • Loud scratching, screeching and crying of young birds

  • Collection of nesting material –grass, twigs, feathers, dried mud around property 

  • Damage to exposed electrical wiring around solar panels and hose

Our Bird Proofing Services

  • Bird proof your solar system quickly and easily with our UV stable coated wire mesh

  • Our bespoke panel clips ensure a secure installation and prevent the birds from getting back on

  • The mesh panel is an excellent way to keep your solar panels safe from any birds that might be around. The sturdy weave will not allow the birds access, yet is unlikely to cause any harm to the birds
