Your solar system should be cleaned and checked periodically to ensure optimal performance. On average solar systems that are regularly maintained perform 10-30% better, but it is always essential to work with an experienced and reputable renewable energy company to ensure the work is carried out to acceptable standards.
For some time now, we have been aware of communications from other parties offering ‘free’ clean and service for solar PV owners. However, these are misleading, as highlighted by a recent post from the Solar Trade Association as below:
Over the last few months some consumers are been approached by fraudulent companies using deliberately confusing branding to take on the appearance of a trade association. This has occurred in the form of letters from the ‘British Trading Solar Association’ and other company names offering homeowners ‘free solar health checks’ We urge you to beware of any such communications as they are fraudulent. It is now clear this company is linked to ESE Services, who are currently under investigation by West Berkshire Trading Standards. As such, if anyone has been visited by a representative of ESE and purchased either a service or a product please contact West Berkshire Trading Standards via TSadvice@westberks.gov.uk. Please put ESE Services Ltd in the subject line.
So, how often do you check your solar system? Do you know whether it is performing as intended? Is your original installer still able to provide support?
At Caplor Energy, we offer two main service packages:
A thorough clean, using de-ionised water, will ensure maximum light exposure to your solar panels.
One of our fully qualified engineers will carry out an entire system check to ensure maximum efficiency of your system. We will test the performance and condition of your panels, inverters plus any monitoring systems you have in place.
If you are concerned about any recent communications you may have recently received, or would like to talk to us about cleaning or maintaining your solar PV system, you can rest assured that as a fully qualified and accredited organisation we will treat your enquiry with the utmost respect and conduct our work to the highest standards.
