Solar Panel Service for Parts Replacement
You’ll probably need to replace your panels upon noticing some of these instances:
Burnt or Discoloured Panels
Corroded panel laminates may result to unevenness in temperature distribution and eventually lead to decreased output in energy. These are usually characterized by yellow or dark brown discolouration, on the edge of some white, metal conductor strips.
Shattered Glass with Microfractures
If you see cracks on some surfaces of your solar cells, this may be a sign of deterioration. The cracks may have been the result of harsh environmental conditions or previous mishandling. Without replacing the panels with a large number of fractures, your energy production may lessen by 2.5%.
Subpar or Non-Genuine Panels
Unfortunately there are installers which were misled by some manufacturers, where their sourced out panels have a combination of real and counterfeit cell conductors. These result to less solar absorption and energy conversion. Should this be the situation, you must contact your provider to replace your existing panels and we can provide the thorough installation service for your new equipment.
If you also need to replace your solar panels to upgrade your conversion capacity, you’ll need to ensure your continuous eligibility for Feed in Tariffs.
