Maintaining your solar system
While minimal maintenance will be required, regular checks of your solar system will ensure reliable performance (every 6 to 8 weeks).
Here are some pointers to maximise the life and performance of your solar system:
Clean the solar panel with a soft, damp cloth to remove any residue or dust film.
Check the mounting bracket is secure and the tilt angle is correct (if necessary, change the angle to accommodate the change in seasons).
Check all leads and connections are secure and undamaged by animals or vegetation.
Check electrolyte level in batteries.
Check the fence line for any faults using a PEL Fault Finder. Clear any debris or vegetation that may be causing a short on the fence.
- Check all exposed terminals and wires for evidence of corrosion from environmental conditions such as salt or chemicals. Tend to any connections that show early signs of corrosion.
