Every day a fault goes undetected could be costing you money. According to government data, more than half of Australia’s residential solar systems perform below the standard they’re supposed to. And even worse, 14% of Australia’s residential solar systems develop a major fault every year and stop working altogether*. Most faults go undetected until homeowners receive an electricity bill spike.
Solar PV systems are generally low maintenance which can sometimes result in situations where they are installed and ignored until noticeable issues arise. As the system ages there are likely to be PV module failures, breakdown of inverters or deterioration of electrical insulation. If left unaddressed, any one of these issues can lead to unexpected interruptions and unplanned downtime, as well as costly repairs.
Early detection of these issues, through ongoing monitoring and regular maintenance, will reduce the severity of the fault and allow warranty claims to be processed within the allocated timelines.
