What our service covers

Keeping your solar panels clean and having the system serviced regularly is very important to get the most from your investment,
We offer a full cleaning and maintaince service for all our customers, We can also undertake work for clients whose original installers are no longer in business or just don’t want to know since installed. It is estimated that 40% of all solar PV systems in the UK are fitted incorrectly or in extreme cases are dangerous with the homeowner unaware of the issues until it stops working leading to lost FiT’S payments. We recommended a yearly service of the system from £59.99 plus v.a.t.

Woollam and Sons Poultry LTD

The customer had been let down by the installer who are no longer trading, we were called into find a fault which had stopped the system working correctly. we spent time checking all the cabling finding and repairing  DC connectors which we left sitting in water which had caused a fault on the inverter and could have endangered anyone working on the roof in the rain from electrocution.

Woollam 200kw solar PV system

We found most of the DC connector lying on the roof,  every time it rained they were getting wet and corrosion had set in, the connectors were replaced and cable tied up where they would no longer get wet.

Finding the faulty connectors under the solar panels was painstaking process but our team quickly fund the faults and replaced were necessary it such a shame that the installer had let down the customer in this way just for the sake of a cable tie but it’s not the first or the last time will see work like this, we would advise any with solar PV system to get in touch with so we can perform an inspection on a system before a fault occurs which will lead to loss of revenue if not.

Replacing an Isolator

We also had to replace two of the Isolator switches which were damaged and had cracks in the casing letting water which could have caused manager damage to the system.
