Why is Solar Maintenance Necessary?
We sat down with Scott Perez, the Director of RenovaPLUS, to discuss the importance of solar maintenance, what homeowners should understand more about their solar energy systems, and what’s on the horizon for RenovaPLUS, the solar maintenance division of Renova Energy. Here’s what he had to say.
It is critical that the experience of switching to solar energy be viewed as a journey. While it begins with installation, for a homeowner or business owner to get the most from their system, the solar energy system must be maintained properly and regularly. In fact, it can be viewed similarly to vehicle maintenance.
To keep the vehicle functioning efficiently, for it to drive from point A to B consistently, the vehicle must undergo routine service. In the same manner, a solar panel system must be cleaned and inspected periodically in order for the panels to produce maximum power. Dirty, ill-maintained panels can result in up to 15% of lost energy output every year.
What Is the #1 Thing That People Overlook About Their Systems After Getting Solar?
Solar energy system owners often overlook one critical factor: energy production. While solar can save most people a considerable amount of money, the effect can be quite the opposite for a household consuming more energy than their system is designed to produce. It’s so important for homeowners to be mindful of the amount of energy they consume and produce to avoid any surprises on end-of-the-year true-up statements. That’s why our team at RenovaPLUS strongly advocates for add-ons for those whose usage habits have changed, causing them to use more energy than originally anticipated.
