At Skylamp Solar, we understand that buying a solar PV system is a major investment.
So, when they break down or don't run as efficiently as they should, it can be extremely frustrating. Understandably, you want your solar panel system up and running as soon as possible and working at maximum efficiency.
The Skylamp Solar expert solar PV repair team in Seaton Delaval can assist you in these cases. With an excellent working knowledge of the subject, we can have your solar panels generating electricity again very soon.
Read on to discover what can go wrong, why it does so, and what Skylamp Solar will do to put it right.
Most solar panels are sold with a long warranty, usually 25 years, which is a sign of their quality and robust nature. As they have few moving parts, there's not much wear and tear to worry about.
Even so, there are several issues to watch out for, and it's vital that these are identified and fixed as soon as possible. One faulty panel can affect the whole system, causing a significant drop in electricity generation.
These are the problems to be aware of:
This is the heart of the whole solar PV system, or more accurately, the brain. It converts solar power into usable electricity and allows you to send surplus energy to the grid.
The entire system is controlled and monitored from here, and this is a good place for discovering any problems with the energy output, flow and efficiency. Most will flash fault codes to let you know there's a problem, which can be helpful.
Unfortunately, there are also a few inverter faults that you might encounter:
After making such a large investment in your solar system, it's clear that you want to keep maintenance and repair costs down as much as possible.
The best way to do this is to have the system fitted by a company you can trust (like Skylamp Solar). You could also benefit from regular solar panel maintenance or an annual service.
As for the cost of repairs, it's impossible to offer a figure as each fault will need careful inspection to determine the best solution. Please contact us if you need further guidance on this.
If you do need a new inverter, this will cost between £1,000 and £6,000 depending on the size and type.

When an inverter stops charging it is most often the battery that is faulty and possibly dead and in need of replacement.
Most solar inverters need to be replaced at around 10-12 years after installation depending on the brand yet some can fail much earlier.
The most common solar panel problem is hot spots, a part of the panel gets hotter than the rest. If the power inside cannot get through the pathways it gets hotter.
Potential induced PID caused by leaks down through the ground earth, hot spots caused by faulty cells and pathways, cracks within the cells resulting in a poor energy conversion rate.
