Your Solar Is Installed, Now What?

You made the move to solar, so now what?
“What’s next?” is a relatively common question, and the answer is relatively simple.


Solar is easy

One of the best things about solar is that solar photovoltaic (PV) systems have virtually no moving parts, and as a result, they require very little upkeep to ensure that they’re working correctly. But here are a few things you should keep in mind. 

Monitoring your system

The majority of solar system installations today come with remote monitoring systems like eGuage, which allow you to check on your system’s production from the comfort of your sofa. It is a good idea to familiarize yourself with this system and check on the performance of your system from time-to-time to make sure it’s working properly. 

Even if your solar PV system doesn’t have its own monitoring system, your local utility company will have a meter that monitors the energy you consume and the energy you generate. When the energy/power you produce exceeds the amount you need, the excess is sent into the electric utility’s grid as a credit. When this happens, the meter begins to run backward.

Maintaining your system

Solar panels require very little maintenance. Except for in rare circumstances, your panels generally require no maintenance or cleaning. The dust and debris that naturally accumulates on your panels is typically washed off during rainstorms. However, it is advised you do a quick inspection of your system on a semi-annual basis to ensure nothing has obstructed the panels and all of the equipment is in working order. In most cases this can be done through your solar panel monitoring system from the comfort of your home.
