Happy spring! As the weather starts to warm up, it’s important for solar system owners to start thinking about spring maintenance. Here are four tips to help you keep your solar panels running efficiently this season:
- Clean your panels
Over the winter, snow, ice, and debris can accumulate on your solar panels, reducing their efficiency. Use a soft-bristled brush or a garden hose to gently remove any dirt, leaves, or snow that has accumulated on your panels.
- Check for damage
Spring is a good time to inspect your solar panels for any signs of damage, such as cracks or broken wires. If you do find damage, contact a professional, like Exact Solar, to make repairs.
- Trim trees and shrubs
Make sure there are no trees or shrubs blocking the sun from reaching your panels. Trim any overhanging branches or foliage that may be shading your solar system.
- Check your batteries
If your solar system has batteries, check them to make sure they’re working properly. Spring is a good time to test your backup power supply to make sure it’s ready in case of a power outage.
