Servicing of Existing Solar Panels FAQ

What is involved in routine solar panel maintenance?

Solar panel systems have little to no moving parts. Some general maintenance includes cleaning the panels as needed, checking the inverter/monitoring system for performance data.

How can I monitor the performance of my solar system?

Most solar systems come with monitoring software that allows you to track energy production in real-time. You can access this data through a web portal, or a mobile app provided by your solar installer. Should you not have any monitoring, there can potentially be a solution to acquire the monitoring. Call our team and we can assist you in more detail.

What should I do if my solar panels aren't producing as much energy as expected?

First, check your monitoring system for any alerts or errors. Ensure the panels are clean and not shaded. If the issue persists, contact us for a professional inspection.

What happens if a solar panel or component fails?

If a component fails, contact us to diagnose the issue. With many years of experience, we service most existing systems. Systems come with manufacturers warranties that cover replacements for specific components, such as inverters or panels.

Can I upgrade my existing solar system to add more panels?

Yes, you can expand your existing solar system. PG&E has regulations in place to limit how much more additional coverage you can add to keep your existing NEM grandfathering program.

Can I upgrade my existing solar system by adding battery storage?

Yes, adding battery storage to your existing solar system is possible and can enhance your energy independence. Consult with your installer to find compatible battery options and installation requirements. Adding batteries will not affect your NEM grandfathering program.

What should I do if my inverter stops working?

Inverters are crucial for converting DC power to AC power. If your inverter stops working, check for any error messages and reset it if possible. If the problem continues, contact us for a replacement or repair.
