Make sure panel is absorbing sunlight

The service that your solar panel gives you will be influenced to a reasonable extent by the amount of sunshine it absorbs. If you have tree in your backyard, make sure that its shade is not limiting the amount of direct sunshine reaching your solar panel.
In addition, make sure that you are keeping a record of the amount of energy that your panel produces each day. Depending on the amount of sun available, you’ll notice that the levels of energy production fluctuate slightly and by providing these figures to the manufacturer of your panel, you’ll be shown how to monitor it.
The monitoring of a solar panel is important as it helps you know your exact contribution to environmental conservation – it also lets you know the exact amount of carbon dioxide you are releasing into the atmosphere.
Solar panel maintenance is easy and perhaps the only real risk you could be taking is getting on the roof to clean it. If you have any doubts about your ability to do this, avoid the risk by letting pro roof cleaners do it.

How to take care of your solar panels


Your solar panels are a great and long-time investment that will give you many years of great service if you take good care of them. Fortunately, solar panel maintenance is really simple work and with a little effort you’ll keep your investment in tip top shape for many years to come.
Keep it clean
The amount of energy that your panel is going to harvest will be influenced to a substantial degree by how clean the surface of the solar panel is. As you can guess, the amount of sunshine reaching your panel will be reduced when the panel is covered in dust and debris.
Keeping your panel clean is really easy. If the panel is wet, all you need to do is wipe the dirt on it off.
For regular maintenance, the provider of your solar panel will also provide you with a kit that should contain a wiper, a small brush and some biodegradable soap. When you notice the accumulation of dirt on the surface of the panel, you need to pick a bucket and mix the soap with water and then use the brush to wipe the dirt off the panel. You must always remember to use the brush provided and never get tempted to use abrasive cleaning brushes as these are likely to scratch the panel’s glass.
