Let There Be Light!

Solar panel maintenance in the summer is necessary to maintain the efficiency of your home solar system. With all the sunshine the season offers, it is a peak production period.

Because solar panels are designed to be durable, withstand the elements, and have no moving parts, they need very little maintenance. But it is good practice to clean the solar panels once a year and remove anything that might be blocking sun from the panels. It is the best maintenance to review the solar panel monitoring system to ensure it is still performing optimally.   

Give the solar panels a good clean this summer and let there be light!

Solar System Warranty and Panel Cleaning.

Solar panel installation in NJ is often covered by a warranty. Before cleaning any panels, review the terms and conditions of the solar system and panel warranty. Sometimes cleaning is covered by a maintenance warranty. If you feel the warranty is unclear in this matter, contact your solar service provider.    

Call In The Professionals for Rooftop Solar Panel Cleaning.

When you have a rooftop solar system, safety must always be the first consideration. Let a professional service provider clean the panels as they have all the necessary equipment to work safely on a rooftop. Ask your solar service provider if they clean panels or can provide a recommendation.        

How to Make Ground-Mounted Solar Panels Shine.

Residential solar panels in NJ are sometimes ground-mounted, and you might choose to clean the panels yourself. SunPower suggests cleaning the panels early in the morning or evening, as high heat will cause streaks and smears. However, if you feel more comfortable having your solar panels maintained professionally, our experts at Greenhouse Solar are always available.     

Remove The Shade.

Solar panels must be kept free from shade to function optimally. Check during daylight hours for trees or plants that shade the panels and trim them back. If there are other obstructions, remove them if possible. 

Review The Solar Panel Monitoring System.

Double-check that the light of the inverters is flashing green. It is an indication that there are no problems with the system.

The Efficiency Of Solar Panels

Solar panel technology has evolved a lot over the last decade or so, and so has their popularity and affordability. Many homeowners across the country are looking for a way to power their homes sustainably and affordably, and as we continue to experience extreme weather incidents and feel the effects of climate change, investing in clean and renewable energy sources will become more and more important. 

We’ve recently seen many advances in solar panel technology, including:

  • Floating solar farms, sometimes called floatovoltaics. Installed on reservoirs or other large bodies of water, floating solar farms don’t take up valuable space on land, and they help with water evaporation by blocking the sunlight. 
  • Building-integrated photovoltaics, also called BIPV solar technology. This means the solar panels are seamlessly integrated into the existing structure of a building, like canopies, facades, curtain walls, and skylight systems. 
  • Solar skins. These are custom designs that are embedded into solar panels, much like a large advertisement on the side of a city bus. 
  • Solar fabric. Solar energy doesn’t just power your home – researchers are developing technology to integrate solar fabric into t-shirts, winter coats, and other items of clothing.
