Solar Panel Care Post Installation

Very often it is being seen that we find it difficult to get accustomed to new technology. But over the years the human race has realized that technology and environment friendly technology is a friend to human kind. Solar Panels are one such eco-friendly product that KOR Energy strongly recommends and promotes.

Though we take care of after sales services at KOR Energy India Pvt. Ltd., but still it holds significance for our technical team to explain the Post Installation maintenance of Solar Panels to our customers. And it also important for our readers to understand the Easy Maintenance of Solar Panels.

Post installation of your solar panels, you ought to take care of following important issues:

  • System maintenance
  • Inspections
  • Upgrading your system
  • Solar panel recycling

SYSTEM MAINTENANCE:

Maintenance of any system is essentially crucial to ensure its productivity is not hampered. Similarly the maintenance of solar panels becomes a part of your duty. To ensure the maintenance of your solar panels, keep it safe and operate efficiently. Solar panels are made up of tempered glass particularly to withstand any rough weather. But there may arise situations when these glass sheets get covered by dust, smog or dirt. Usually under such condition the output will fall down. Since it is the panel which absorbs the sunlight, sufficient care should be taken to ensure that the panels are clean. Panels are cleaned in the same way as the windshields. However, it would be advisable to hire a professional for this task. Solar companies also offer the solar panel cleaning services.

Note:avoid using or spraying cold water on the hot solar panels. It may result in cracking the sheets.

You may be provided with a maintenance schedule by the solar photovoltaic installer. Maintenance is much more than mere cleaning the panels. It also includes ensuring that the system is working safely and efficiently.

INSPECTION:

Post the installation of the solar photovoltaic, inspections may be carried by the electrical authorities of the state. These inspections are mandatory or may occur on random basis depending upon which territory you live. The installer of these panels may also inspect the productivity of these.

The clean energy regulator also performs these inspections up to twelve months post installation of the system. These inspections are mandatory to ensure that they meet requirement for the small scale technology certificates.

Ariel thermal imaging is the technology is to check if the calculated return of solar panel system is met. This technology helps to detect the defects and deficiencies in a timely and cost effective manner. one of the benefit served is that humans are not exposed to the hazards.

Thus with inspection you can keep track of how much energy is being generated, diagnosing which areas of the solar panel system are not functioning properly.

UPGRADING YOUR SYSTEM:

Some people think that upgrading an existing solar panel system is as easy as adding couple of additional solar panels. If you consider going for upgrading the existing solar panel system, firstly you must ensure that installing a system should match with the inverter capacity. Secondly, since the solar panel technology is changing rapidly, make sure that the old existing panel system matches with the latest technology based solar panel system. Thirdly, you have to look for the signs of corrosion, yellowing or browning of the panels. The cables and seals should also be checked properly before upgrading your existing system. Fourthly, your existing feed-in tariffs should remain retained/unchanged.

SOLAR PANEL RECYCLING:

This stage eventually comes when the lifecycle of the solar battery comes to an end. The thing at this stage is to disconnect it from the solar panel system and dispose it properly. Generally the life span of a solar panel system is 25 years.However, once the solar battery is dead, recycling solar panels is the better option because it has environmental benefits. Also the components that have been used in the manufacture of the solar cells such as glass, aluminum, semiconductors etc can be brought to reuse. Recycling will not only reduce the amount of the waste but will also lower the energy which will be required to produce new raw materials for manufacturing new solar panels.

We hope the above write-up helped you understand the basics and also explained how you can smartly use the solar panels and get the optimum results out of the same. Incase you have any further queries on Solar Panels or its maintenance, please feel free to write to us at, info@korenergy.in
