Is your PV system not performing as well as it used to? Has it stopped working all together?
Most of the time your PV system will be working all on its own, you won’t need to do anything apart from watching your bills go down each month. Faults however can occur in your system and it is important to regularly check you are still producing power to your home or business.
Not noticing that your system has stopped working can be costly, especially in the summer. If you don’t have a monitor displaying what you are producing then checking your generation meter or inverter on a weekly or monthly basis is good practice. Checking that the red light on your generation meter is flashing regularly and is not in a solid red state during the day or checking that there are no fault lights showing on your inverter are the best ways to quickly see if there is a problem.
An inverter’s life will normally last in the region of 10 years, you may be lucky and it may go on for longer but at some point in the lifetime of your system the inverter will fail and it will need replacing. Generation Solar can provide a quick and efficient service to get your inverter replaced so you lose as little amount of production as possible.
