Solar Cleaning & Maintenance
Keep your solar system protected year round with panel cleaning, inspections, and monitoring maintenance.

As solar panels sit stationary on the roof, debris, dust, and dirt will accumulate over time. By accumulating dirt, the solar system’s efficiency drops as blocked cells fail to produce at maximum capacity. Because of this, it makes sense to clean your panels once or twice a year, depending on where you live. If the process isn’t done by a professional, the panels can be scratched or damaged. EnergyAid’s experienced technicians have cleaned systems all over California leaving them at maximum efficiency.

Panel Cleaning

As solar panels sit stationary on the roof, debris, dust, and dirt will accumulate over time. By accumulating dirt, the solar system's efficiency drops as blocked cells fail to produce at maximum capacity. Because of this, it makes sense to clean your panels once or twice a year, depending on where you live. If the process isn't done by a professional, the panels can be scratched or damaged. EnergyAid's experienced technicians have cleaned systems all over California leaving them at maximum efficiency.

Annual Inspection

It is relatively common for solar systems to fail without the homeowners realizing it right away and the penalties for failing to catch the issue can be costly. Solar systems are complicated pieces of electronics and each system has multiple possible fail points. It could be the panels, it could be the inverters, it could even be the wiring. Regardless of what the issue is, the best way to ensure that the system is working correctly is to schedule an annual system inspection. If you schedule an inspection with EnergyAid, one of its technicians will do a comprehensive diagnosis that includes getting on the roof to check panels, opening the main service panel to ensure there are no arc faults or tripped breakers, and testing the inverter to make sure it is functional. Catching an issue quickly can help homeowners save hundreds of dollars on their utility bills and even if everything is functioning properly, the peace of mind can make a big difference.

Monitoring Analysis

The monitoring platforms are designed to be simple and user-friendly, but if customers weren’t told how to analyze their monitoring data in detail, it can be difficult to identify issues with the system and its performance. Helping customers with monitoring is one of the most common responsibilities for EnergyAid and its team. We have experience working with all different kinds of monitoring systems, including locus meters, SolarEdge monitoring, Enphase Enlighten monitoring, etc. If a homeowner is having trouble reading the data and understanding how to ensure that their system is working, EnergyAid can help schedule a time to review the data with the customer and make suggestions or give feedback so that homeowners know what to look for and can identify issues in the future.

Monitoring Maintenance

Most solar systems installed within the last 10 years come equipped with some form of monitoring capability. Some of the monitoring devices are proprietary to the inverter manufacturers. Other monitoring devices are manufactured by standalone monitoring companies. These devices are the fastest and easiest way for homeowners to ensure that their system is working properly. They are also prone to malfunctioning and are subject to frequent connectivity issues. There are a number of reasons why a monitoring device may malfunction, but fixing that issue can make the difference between catching a system error and not catching one. EnergyAid’s technicians are trained to quickly identify these issues and find solutions that will help customers get their monitoring portals back up and running as quickly as possible.

Project: Repair Solar Panels For Electric System
It had been almost 2 years since the last cleaning. Measuring my output immediately before and after cleaning showed an increase of 53 percent.
