Maintenance - Solar




Over the years, Universal Wiring has discovered that a lot of current solar panel systems are installed but have never been maintained or have any sort of monitoring systems.

Universal Wiring recommends that PV systems are cleaned, checked and maintained at least once a year to ensure that it is performing correctly.

Experts agree that dirty solar panels don’t produce as much power as clean panels, which may range as high as 25% in energy loss in some areas according to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. Some have even reported losses as high as 30% for some owners who have never cleaned their panels.

This directly affects your production, and in essence your utility bill. It is our goal to make sure that you receive the most benefit from your PV system, and to maximize efficiency.

Energy degradation of your solar array can be contributed by:

  • Hard water spots
  • Pollution
  • Dust
  • Leaves
  • Bird droppings, etc

We use biodegradable cleaning products, so it is safe for the environment and keeps your panels free of any films or residue.


Our Solar Maintenance Service works with our customers, to verify that the solar array in question is in proper working condition. If we find any problems, we will address in our report, and provide the steps needed to rectify the problem.

This Includes:

  • Check Roof Attachments
  • Check DC voltage of the Panels
  • Take irradiance reading to cross check with performance.
  • Check AC voltage
  • Visual inspection of all electric cabling
  • An Inspection Report showing all results will be provided to you within 5 business days.
