Do Solar Panels Need Servicing?

Solar panels require little maintenance especially in the winter when bad weather conditions mean the panels often clean themselves without the need to have to pay for engineers to come out and maintain them. In the summer more work may be needed to keep the panels up to standard because the dry weather means the panels have little rain so are unable to stay clean and can therefore, get quite dirty and not look as appealing. Signing up to our maintenance package means you'll pay a fixed rate for the entire year and for that get your panels annually cleaned, inspected and kept up to date to guarantee high panel efficiency.

Regular maintenance checks are especially beneficial for larger commercial solar systems because it ensures the system is operating properly with no underlying issues. Something important to regularly check with large systems because if something does go wrong it can impact the business on a large scale. If your solar panels are installed on a flat roof, they’ll need regular cleans anyway because unlike solar panels installed on a slanted array that clean themselves when rain runs down, panels on a flat roof are unable to stay clean as easy. Solar panel servicing means any potential problems can be terminated before they become any bigger and affect the functionality of the system.

How Many Solar Panels Do I Need For My Business?

There is no definitive answer to this you can only be advised as to what could be suitable however, your business may need more or fewer panels depending on the size of your business, the amount of electricity your business consumes on average, the industry of your business and the amount of panels your roof can hold. These are all deciding factors of your system's size. For instance a manufacturing business is likely to use a lot more electricity than a law firm would, however the size of a business will also affect the amount of electrics used. Larger businesses with more staff are likely to use a greater amount of electricity than a business that has less staff. Before evaluating how many panels your business needs you'll need to calculate how many panels your roof can have on it first.

Photovoltaic solar panels often include a warranty of 20-25 years however, various solar customers have made use of their solar panels long after the warrantied time has finished. Solar panels have an average deficiency of around 0.5%-1% every year which would mean after 20 years your panels would still be over 80% efficient.
