Solar Panel Maintenance, Servicing & Repairs
Why Solar Panel Maintenance Is Necessary
If you’ve had your solar energy system installed, you will want to protect your investment and keep your system running in great shape for the foreseeable future. Generally, solar panel maintenance needs are relatively low, but there are a few key areas of maintenance you’ll need to consult the pros for.
You will also want to work with a reputable company, like Tethys Energy, to check-up on the components of your system and solar batteries at regular intervals to evaluate whether the integrity of these various aspects are still working as well as they should be.
Ensuring that there is no damage to any of the parts of your solar system, as well as keeping the system as clean as possible, keeps your solar panel system working for as long as possible and will pay off in the long run.

Maintenance Scenarios To Consider
At Tethys Energy, we ensure we install your solar panel systems to last for the long term and believe that if installed correctly by a registered installer, there shouldn't be any significant need for ongoing maintenance. However, there are certain circumstances where the location, conditions or environment means that solar panel maintenance is highly recommended in order to ensure your solar panels are working as effectively as possible.
- Is your property located in a wooded area with wildlife or trees nearby?
- Is your property near busy roads with heavy traffic, vibrations or pollution?
- Is your property near industrial areas where there is a higher chance of wear and tear?
- Are you doing extensive development work on your property which could impact your roof and structures?
- Were your solar panels installed a long time ago or have they had issues in the past?
- Has your property been subject to extreme weather conditions where damage to the property is significant?
If any of these scenarios relate to you and your property, feel free to get in touch with our solar maintenance team today for some impartial advice on whether your panels will require maintenance and the best course of action for your circumstances.

Having Issues With Pests?
If you are having issues with pest control that is affecting your solar panel installation then you need to speak with a registered pest control provider and in some cases your local council. Your local council requires specific licenses for pest control and you should always check these credentials before approving any pest control work.
Although Tethys Energy cannot remove pests, nests or rodents from your property, we can provide preventative measures once they have been dealt with.
These preventative measures such as:
- Pigeon spikes
- Bird proofing
Are designed to be humane. They simply discourage pests from taking up home in or around your solar panel system without hurting them.

understanding the Solar Energy Opportunities For Your Home
If your home has been using a solar PV array for its power needs for a long period of time now, you may be wondering if it is running as efficiently as it could be? Is there new technology or upgrades that could be beneficial to my installation?
As solar energy systems age, they may not work at their optimum levels anymore, so getting a solar power audit completed on your property can provide clear reporting on the efficiency of your system.
A good solar power audit can often help you save money. You may have been considering purchasing a new system, when in fact there is new technology at a fraction of the price that could be used to enhance your existing system further.
Are You Aware Of Upgrades & New Solar Technologies?
If your solar PV array was installed several years ago, you may not be aware of the new technologies that have become available during that time, such as new Solar Battery Storage solutions, PV Hot Water systems and new advances in EV charge points that come with monitoring via apps and web-pages too.

"Jason did a great job of getting my PV array back working. I have recently taken over the array from another family member, so did not understand anything about it except that it wasn't working. Jason came, quickly figured out what the fault was, and fixed it with no fuss or bother."
"Jason responded to my request for a second opinion promptly. I was "cold called" by a company offering a free check on my 6 year old solar energy system. They then tried to tell me the system was working at 72% capacity, that they would replace my inverter and install optimisers for £5,500 but special offer if i signed a contract there and then for £4,500. Needless to say I declined. I contacted Which? Trusted Traders for advice and was given Jason's name. He checked my system, found no problems and told me if anything it was performing better than expected."
