Solar PV Systems Are Easy To Maintain

Solar Industry in India has taken huge strides in recent years. Government has set an ambitious target1 – 100GW Solar PV capacity by 2022. Out of this number 40GW is supposed to be achieved through roof top installations.

Even though rooftop Solar adoption is rapidly increasing, one of major concerns in people’s mind is about system maintenance and its associated cost. Given that solar is a long-term investment, the question of recurring maintenance requirement is a valid one.

Traditionally solar energy systems have worked with battery storage, which needs to be replenished as per its cycle life and usage. However, with new policies like ‘Net-Metering’ the requirement of batteries can be done with. This allows use of Grid-Tied solar systems, which work in conjunction with existing power supply. These systems consists of –

  1. Solar PV Modules
  2. Inverter
  3. Mounting Structure
  4. Electrical Fixtures and Accessories

All of the above items are long life and function autonomously. There are no moving parts; hence system works without any friction or noise. You will not even notice that power is being generated right on your roof.

Cleaning of PV Modules

To get the most out of your solar power investment, it is recommended to periodically clean solar PV modules so that they are free of any dust particles or debris. This is only activity required as part of maintenance of your solar power system. And it is as easy as wiping your glass windows to make it clean.

You may use a soft cloth, brush, wiper or a sponge squeegee on a long pole. Below you can find some illustrative schematics for how cleaning can be managed –

Reiterating again, Solar PV systems do not have any moving components, which may require repair and replacement. At Insolergy, we use galvanized iron mounting structures to prevent any rusting or corrosion Additionally, all Insolergy Solar PV Systems are equipped with safety features such as surge protection device so that chance of equipment damage or system breakdown is next to zero.

In short, when you get Insolergy Solar PV system installed on your rooftop, all you have to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy green and clean energy for more than next two decades. It is a smart energy choice that you are making today, which will help the generations to follow.

    Nanocoatings especially produced for PV glass surfaces already proven their value.
    As soiling is the most important factor for the protection of PV module investment as SolarBankability study reports, PV module cleaning is mandatory.
    nanocoatings will help.
