Solar Maintenance Tips
Solar Panel Maintenance 101
Thankfully, the actual maintenance and repairs needed by solar panels is usually minimal. Solar panels have no moving parts, and thanks to the advanced manufacturing techniques used in our industry-leading solar panels, they’re designed to last and will lose only a minimal amount of output power per year. Most of our solar panel systems run for upwards of 25-30 years with little to no maintenance or repairs needed.

Your solar panels should be in direct sunlight for as many hours per day as possible to maximize power production and cost savings.
