A lack of proper monitoring and maintenance is the number one reason for lost production in residential solar energy systems. Poor maintenance can result in up to 30% energy loss in a typical solar PV and solar thermal system system before symptoms are visible to the owner.
Just like any major appliance or system in a home, solar requires regular maintenance and observation to extend life and maximize performance. Details are important in new and existing solar installations, and service technicians are trained to bring installations up to code while maximizing each installation for top production. As with the Golden Rule, Solar Alternatives treats your solar installation as one of its own.
Solar Alternatives O&M staff is built around trained experts with NABCEP Certification and years of field experience. Crew members include Electrical Engineers, Licensed Electricians, and Certified Roofers and Plumbers. Service is available for solar PV, home batteries (solar generators), solar pool heat installations, and solar water heating systems. The service team also maintains standby generators with factory-certified technicians.
Service is available on all residential solar facilities in the Gulf South, installed by Solar Alternatives or by other contractors. If you have a solar installation and are unsure of its status, need annual maintenance or cleaning, or just need help with title transfer documentation, the O&M team can help get your system up to original working condition.
Maintenance and monitoring are a critical part of your solar system, and their modest cost is more than made up for with production and reliability. Learn more about home solar maintenance and service today.
