Maintenance Program

Solar Cleaning

VicSolar offers 100% environmentally friendly cleaning. Your rainwater tanks will not be affected since we do not use any harsh chemicals or detergents. Our scratch free brush will get rid of stubborn dirt without damaging your panels. We use deionised water ensuring crystal clear panels every time, be aware that using hard water from your tap can leave water spots containing mineral deposits, reducing the output from your solar power system. Water is classified as hard when its TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) levels are 170 mg/L and above.

Solar Check Up

Solar Panels:
After cleaning the Solar panels, a visual inspection for defects such as cracks, chips and discoloration will be carried out. A log will be maintained to note any defects that are found and these will be recorded in the logbook. These defects are then monitored for further deterioration and their effect on the efficiency of the system is recorded. Since most solar power systems are covered by warranty you can remedy the situation immediately by making a warranty claim.

Mounting Structures:
Mounting structures that secure the solar panels to the roof will be inspected to ensure that they are secure and free of rust or corrosion. Wiring cables, conduits and switches will be inspected for loose wiring or breakages.

Inverter:
Inverters will be inspected to check if operating correctly and if the heat sinks and ventilation grills are clean. It should be free of dirt, dust, spider webs and vermin since this can lead to heat build up reducing the life of the inverter.

All VicSolar cleaning specialists are CEC (Clean Energy Council) accredited and strictly adhere to CEC code of conduct.
