Maintenance Of The Solar System

A solar PV system is a complex electricity generating piece of equipment, and to keep it safe and operating efficiently, it is vital to both maintain your system and operate it safely. A Maintenance Of The Solar System schedule will be provided by your solar PV retailer or installer that you must take note of and follow. This is necessary to ensure that:

• it is operating correctly

• the system performance is maintained

• the system is safe for everyone in the premises as well as for any electrical workers working on the distribution network Make sure you engage a CEC-accredited installer to undertake maintenance work on your solar PV system. Maintaining your system means much more than just cleaning your panels. An accredited installer will check that the system is functioning safely and efficiently, allowing you to maximise the savings on your power bills for years to come. Some distributors may request that an anti-islanding test of the inverter be carried out periodically. Check with your distributor as each will have different requirements.
