Solar – I T & M

Solar PV inspection test & maintenance

 

 

Not all solar companies have the same high standards or technical competance you might expect.

 

Installations may have un-apparent defects that may not be immediately detected or develop equipment faults over time.

 

With over 20 years combined partner experience, we know PV better than anyone, let our expertise protect and safeguard your investment.

 

We offer a bespoke service … contact our service operations and maintenance team on 0845 600 9029.

Why schedule inspection test & maintenance?

 

All electrical systems benefit from periodic inspection and testing,  Solar PV systems are no exception.

 

For PV systems mounted on buildings, the recommended inspection interval will depend on the type and use of the building as well as environmental conditions.

Typical inspection triggers include:

 

An obvious fault has developed

Concerns about erratic generation behaviour or reduced returns

Periodic verification / routine maintenance

A change in system ownership

Inspection to safeguard your investment

 

 

In the vast majority of cases, problems do not occur. Even when they do, the most common problem is reduced system output, undermining investment returns. Very occasionally however, faults lead to fire or shock risk.

What’s the risk?

 

Faults occasionally develop in even the best installed and properly specified PV systems.

 

The most obvious fault is usually an inverter failure, which generally is spotted pretty quickly. However, a loss of any number of solar strings of solar panels in a larger system can be much more difficult to spot and can go unnoticed for months, leading to a significant loss in income and a change to your expected

Monitoring and fault alarms

 

While not an alternative to periodic system verification, an effective remote monitoring and fault reporting system will provide early warning of drops in performance or faults.

 

Most well designed larger systems should include such a facility. Retrofitting is a practical and effective option where not installed at the outset, Brill Energy Commercial Services can retro fit these systems.
