Solar panels and solar power generation systems generally have low maintenance requirements. However, when it comes to ensuring reliable power for your business or home, you need to be certain what is required is completed on time, by a qualified professional who knows what they’re doing and what to look for. Regular maintenance not only helps avoid a breakdown, it also helps you get the most out of your system so that you can see a return on your investment faster.
Empire Renewable Energy is a leading provider of renewable power solutions for businesses, homes, and nonprofits in the Arizona region. As part of our overall commitment to our clients, we offer comprehensive solar panel maintenance solutions from a team of expert technicians. Whether we installed your system initially or not, count on us for everything you need to keep your system running its best for the long term.
If you currently have a photovoltaic (PV) solar power system installed on your property, Empire Renewable Energy can provide the following:
- General solar/PV maintenance and service: For most solar systems, PV maintenance involves little more than periodic inspections to ensure everything is working as it should. As part of a general preventive PV maintenance plan, Empire Renewable Energy can schedule regular checkups that confirm your system is positioned properly and configured for maximum effectiveness at all times.
- Inverter maintenance and service: Inverter systems are somewhat more complicated than solar panels and as a result have slightly more intensive maintenance requirements. A typical checkup will involve inspecting and testing all electrical connections, torquing terminals and bolts as necessary, testing safety equipment and more. Regular inverter maintenance by a qualified professional may also be required to keep your warranty intact.
- Solar panel cleaning: Solar panels must be clean and free of debris to ensure proper operation. Dust, leaves, and other dirt can compromise the efficiency of your system by as much as 30 percent. Solar panel cleaning should be left to professionals, especially on roof-mounted systems or other setups where safe accessibility is an issue. Contact Empire Renewable Energy to arrange a service call at your convenience.
- Remote system monitoring: Remote PV monitoring is the best way to track productivity and identify when an issue is present. Our monitoring services let our technicians know when your system is underperforming and provide important diagnostic data that allows us to correct problems quickly and permanently.
We’ll work with you to determine a maintenance and service schedule that’s tailored to the needs of your system. We also provide emergency solar service should you experience a sudden issue – contact our team at the first sign of a problem, and we will send a technician to troubleshoot the issue.
