At Low Carbon Energy, we not only supply and install your solar panels; we also offer a Solar Panel Maintenance service too. While our solar panels require little maintenance, regular service checks do ensure you get the best out of your solar PV system and help you get at least 25 years out of your solar panels. Best of all, our maintenance service is available to all homes, properties and buildings with solar panels – even if we didn’t install your original system.

Our maintenance service is an essential addition to your Low Carbon Energy solution, ensuring your panels continue to deliver the best year-on-year.

With regular maintenance, your solar panels will:

  • Perform at their best
  • Last even longer
  • Be a better long-term investment

Our Solar PV maintenance service: What it involves

Our Solar Panel Maintenance service basically looks to ensure your solar panels are in full working order. We check for any environmental degradation and resolve any issues that may have occurred with your solar panels since they’ve been installed. We’ll also future proof your solar panels assessing for any other risks, identifying any potential or minor problems early on.

Maintenance of your solar panels also fulfils all your warranty requirements and helps avoid fire risk, complying with IEC 62446.

We’ll inspect the PV system itself, testing and measuring all the DC circuits and individual components as well as the module glass – looking for damage, discolouration, irregularities and more.

Our maintenance programme also covers check and maintenance of the inverters, mounting frame, and security – testing the serviceability of CCTV and fencing system as appropriate.

Following your service, we’ll issue you with a report, as required, covering the ins and outs of the service and any work that was required. At this point, you can schedule your next maintenance service or leave your next appointment until you’ve got a solar panel-related issue that needs sorting.

Our Solar Maintenance service plans

One of the best things about this service is that you choose when you want your solar panels looked at. We don’t ask our customers to sign up to any pre-paid service plans or routine maintenance plans – instead giving you the freedom to book an appointment when required.

For those of you who’d prefer the assurance planned maintenance service, we do have that available too.

To book your Solar PV Maintenance check, just fill out our online form and we’ll sort out an appointment as soon as possible.

If you’re looking for other ways to make the most of your solar panels, why not consider battery storage? By storing the excess electricity generated from the panels by day, you’ll benefit from greater energy independence as you use stored electricity for “free” at night. Battery storage is also ideal for those regions that suffer from electricity blackouts – ensuring you don’t have to go without.
