A well-maintained system creates long-term value.


A well maintained system is small price to pay for the decades of value clean energy provides. 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 before symptoms are visible to the owner. Just like any major appliance or system in a home, solar requires regular maintenance and observation to maximize performance.

Our solar panel service technicians are trained to bring installations up to code while maximizing each installation for top production.

Solar Alternatives treats your solar installation as one of its own.

Not just installers, 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. Our  service team also maintains standby generators with factory-certified technicians.

Service is available on all residential solar facilities in the New Orleans, 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.

Residential Services:

  • Monitoring: 24/7 monitoring is just as important for residential projects as for large commercial installations. With remote monitoring, the team can identify system problems immediately and dispatch a technician to inspect and repair.
  • Troubleshooting: Most production and service problems can be repaired in a single technician visit. The team will also handle warranty claims with all manufacturers on your behalf.
  • Emergency: If a problem is a risk to human safety, the techs can dispatch for emergency service 24 hours a day.
  • Regular maintenance: Periodic inspection and testing will ensure your system is safe, functional, and performing at maximum power. A small investment that pays itself off in confidence and value.
  • Panel Cleaning: Soiled panels can greatly impact production, especially in areas that experience more airborne dust and debris. Cleaning is quick and affordable.
  • System Inspection/Transfer: Whether you’re buying or already own a house, it pays to know about its system inspection. Solar Alternatives can help. Transfer paperwork is also available for manufacturers and leased installations.
  • System extension: Adding more panels can provide extra power and savings with increased efficiency at a lower installed cost.
  • Critter Guard: Occasionally wildlife will find its way into your system and start doing damage. This is one of the most common issues in rural installations after a few years. Fortunately, there are simple solutions to install a guard system that prevents further damage.

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.
