Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some signals that indicate your system may require attention:

  1. Decreased Energy Production: If you notice a significant drop in your system’s energy output compared to previous performance, it could indicate underlying issues that require professional maintenance.

  2. Physical Damage: Harsh weather conditions can damage components of your solar system. Look for signs of physical damage, such as cracked panels, loose wiring, or deteriorating DC isolator casings. These issues should be addressed promptly to prevent further damage or potential safety risks.

  3. Inefficiency and Poor Performance: A solar system that is not functioning optimally may exhibit signs of inefficiency, such as prolonged periods of low power generation or inconsistent energy production. This could be due to various factors, including faulty inverters, dirty panels, or wiring issues.

  4. Faulty Monitoring System: If your solar monitoring system indicates irregularities or malfunctions, it is advisable to have a professional inspection to diagnose and rectify the problem.

  5. Increased Electricity Bills: Unusually high electricity bills despite having a solar system in place could indicate a malfunction or inefficiency in your system. Timely maintenance can help identify and address these issues, ensuring cost savings in the long run.

Solar panel systems are designed to last more than 25 years, with many panels from the 1980s still operating at expected capacity. Solar panel longevity has increased significantly over the past two decades, and manufacturers often provide performance guarantees in their warranties.

While solar panels can continue producing electricity beyond their expected lifespan, their energy production gradually decreases. However, regular maintenance and cleaning can extend their effective life. Poor maintenance is a leading factor in reducing the lifespan of solar panels, emphasizing the importance of regular upkeep to maximize their longevity.

By hiring Scholz Solar’s maintenance service, customers can benefit in the following ways:

  3. Longevity and Cost Savings: By extending the life of solar panels through regular maintenance, customers can avoid premature degradation or the need for costly replacements. Scholz Solar’s maintenance service helps protect the customer’s investment by ensuring the panels operate effectively for as long as possible, providing continued energy savings over the system’s extended lifespan.

  4. Professional Inspections: Annual inspections by Scholz Solar’s professionals offer a thorough evaluation of the solar panel system, identifying any potential issues early on. By detecting and addressing problems promptly, customers can avoid larger repairs or performance issues down the line, ultimately prolonging the life expectancy of their panels.
