Understanding the maintenance that is needed with a major purchase of new equipment is crucial. We all know how much maintenance is involved with ownership of a vehicle, air conditioning, and other significant assets.
Luckily, the maintenance of rooftop solar in Florida is virtually nonexistent. This is in large part due to the fact that the solar array is completely stationary. Nothing needs to be oiled and parts do not experience significant wear. The only maintenance typically required for a solar PV system is cleaning the panels. We recommend cleaning solar panels once a year to remove dust and pollen that has accumulated. This ensures that the maximum amount of light is able to make it to the solar cells. Cleaning solar panels can be done yourself or by hiring a professional company.
