As industries continue to tap into the power of solar energy, the maintenance of solar systems should be your top priority. Long-term solar benefits can only be reaped when an array is carefully managed and maintained, ensuring your system lasts decades. An installation generating power at its maximum capacity will save you money and ensure the largest return on your investment, and this is achieved through a comprehensive Operations and Maintenance (O&M) Plan.
RenEnergy’s exclusive in-house team of designers and installers provides solar PV and energy storage solutions for the agriculture, commercial and industrial sectors. This includes self-generated electricity, as well as energy efficiency measures to maximise our customers return on investment by embracing clean energy and saving on their bottom-line. And our green journey with customers doesn’t end there as we offer a tailor-made O&M plan to ensure your panels, and business, operates at peak capacity while extending the lifespan of your system.
What is an Operations and Maintenance plan?
Setting up your solar PV array is a major investment and one that can last decades when given the proper TLC. A well-maintained solar power system can perform 10 – 30% better than one that has not received regular solar panel maintenance checkups. A comprehensive O&M plan provides several benefits for business owners looking to harness the power of the sun.
This package is an essential requirement as it provides a protection plan for your solar PV system when needed. Depending on the specification of your installation, a solar PV system that is underperforming as a result of environmental, software or equipment impairment can be repaired and maintained in our end-to-end O&M service plan, with our experienced team performing repairs to panels, software, or whichever portion of your array that needs extra attention. Our maintenance plan also includes general check-ups, software upgrades and inverter maintenance, ensuring your system continues to operate at ideal capacity.

Let’s take a deeper look into some of the offerings available to you:
Depending on the scope of work agreed upon within your plan, we conduct regular site visits throughout the year to ensure that your solar PV system is physically in good condition. Through these visits, we will be able to diagnose any problems with your system and take the necessary action to ensure that your system is performing optimally.
Electrical Systems Check
A fault in the electrical system that connects your array to the power grid is a crucial component to ensuring that your system is functioning at an ideal level. Therefore, making sure that this electrical system is well-maintained is vital. Our package includes methodical checks to all wiring and electrical systems to help ensure that your solar PV system provides the correct level of power to your business while ensuring that the relevant health and safety protocols are in place.
Maintaining Your Solar Inverter
Your solar inverter plays a fundamental role in your solar PV power system. It ensures that the DC power generated by the solar panels is inverted to AC electricity which is then utilised to keep your business running. Your solar PV inverters need to be well-maintained as they usually offer a slightly shorter lifespan than solar panels. With RenEnergy, we guarantee that this remains a priority in our checks, with general visual inspections of inverters and auxiliary equipment conducted for any anomalies, filter cleaning, and inspection of fuses being at the top of the list.
Did you know that a clean array will outperform a dirty one by an average of 4.7%? Solar panels that were once caked in grime can generate 50% more energy after a thorough cleaning, demonstrating the effectiveness a good scrubbing can have on your system. RenEnergy helps maintain your solar PV system by ensuring that panels underproducing due to dirt and various environmental elements are thoroughly cleaned.
While dust and dirt can often pose problems to the functioning of your solar system, a recurring annoyance when it comes to solar panels is vermin, particularly bird’s nests and rodents that nestle in and around your array. RenEnergy’s O&M plans include the removal of these vermin in order to prevent current or future problems that may affect the functioning of your solar PV system.
Your partner in power, RenEnergy provides peace of mind in all aspects regarding the maintenance of your solar PV system and ensures that your business’s solar system is functioning smoothly and at optimal capacity.
