Which Other Parts of a Solar System Need Maintained?

Severe weather, including hail and debris-carrying wind, can also cause damage to solar panels, leaving large cracks in the tempered glass face. Additionally, debris can cause micro scratches that reduce a solar panel’s efficiency over time by preventing sunlight from shining directly onto the cells. If a solar panel is visibly damaged even from the ground, it needs to be replaced to restore the system’s efficiency. Other parts of the system that may need repair or replacement include but are not limited to:

  • The inverter
  • Battery banks
  • Mounting racks
  • Power meter

How do micro cracks effect solar panels?

Each solar panel on your house is made of tiny silicon cells that are all connected together. This extremely thin wafer material made for the cells is flexible and strong, but it is prone to cracking from severe stress, especially if not installed properly.

  1. Microcracks can expand & contract w/ weather
  2. Water penetration can cause solar cells to fail
  3. Degrade ability to store energy on the panel
  4. Cracked panels will not absorb light efficiently

Solar System Inspection

While solar panel installation usually goes smoothly, there can be a lot of red tape surrounding it as well. Because residential solar systems must be connected to the grid, inspections and permits are required to ensure safe solar installation. Roof Fix is the only roofing company / Houston solar installer with a licensed electrician on staff certified with CPS Energy. Since Roof Fix can connect to the grid, we offer a warranty that covers both ROOF & SOLAR systems together. No more finger pointing between roofing and solar companies.
