Once you’ve invested all that time and energy into finding and installing your perfect solar system, it’s finally time to sit down and enjoy it.
Now you’re reaping the benefits of your new solar system, the only thing you’ll need to consider is maintenance work – you can’t let your system be performing sub-optimally after all those steps!
Because a solar system is such a complex piece of equipment, maintenance is necessary to ensure that it remains safe and is always performing efficiently. A maintenance schedule will be supplied to you by your provider detailing the necessary steps to guarantee your system is performing well. System maintenance will ensure that:
- Your system is operating correctly
- The performance of your system is maintained
- The system never presents any safety hazards for those living or working on the premises
Your Clean Energy Council accredited installer, Renew Energy, will be able to perform all your solar maintenance work.
Considering Your Future with Solar
Even though your system may continue to perform well in the future, your circumstances might warrant a solar system upgrade. Whether it be due to a bigger family or desiring a larger investment in solar, there are several things to consider. You will first need to check with your electricity retailer and distributor to find any requirements necessary to upgrade your system.
Safety inspections are also to be carried out during the life of your solar panels. These inspections are conducted by relevant electrical authorities, and may be mandatory or occur on a random audit basis. Independent inspections are carried out in Western Australia on behalf of the Clean Energy Regulator.
The details regarding how these inspections are conducted in Western Australia can be found here. This report also reinforces how important it is to go with a reputable solar provider with the rates of defect found in the installations inspected. A safety inspection may also need to be carried out before your system is connected to the grid to ensure that everything complies with safety standards.
Recycling Your Panels
When solar panels inevitably reach the end of their life, it’s a great idea to have them recycled. Panel recycling programs, such as Reclaim PV Recycling, are being established to enable materials to be disposed of correctly or potentially repurposed.
With a Renew Energy system, you can rest assured that hassles in the future will be addressed in a comprehensive manner. We want you to make the most of and enjoy your solar energy without feeling anxious about the future of your solar system.
