Why you should service your Solar System?
Do you have a Solar system and live in the South Eastern suburbs of Melbourne? The chances are you may be due for a service. Melbourne has an unpredictable climate the Solar system’s equipment must withstand a lot. The best way to ensure that your Solar system is performing at it best is to have it regularly serviced.
Otherwise, you may be losing money.
Service and Maintenance
Is your Solar PV installation SAFE and working PROPERLY?
There are also regulations
Are you aware that as an owner of an embedded generating system (Solar PV), you have obligations under Victoria’s Electricity Distribution Code to regularly check and maintain your system? A copy of the code can be found at Australian Government, Clean Energy Regulator, More on the Victoria’s Electricity Distribution Code here… Incorrectly installed or poor quality DC equipment can pose a fire risk. If your system was installed before 16th October 2012 you could be in the high risk category.
In addition to your mandatory requirements it is also highly recommended to ensure your system is performing correctly. The reality is most people wouldn’t know if it is or not. This is why it is important to have an HONEST and EXPERIENCED Solar installer/electrician conduct your maintenance. Much like servicing your vehicle, your Solar requires periodic maintenance.
