Solar Panel Replacement
High quality solar panels can continue to produce energy for your home or business for decades with very little maintenance or upkeep involved. Manufacturers have designed solar panels to be durable enough to endure a wide range of outdoor conditions, including high winds, flying debris, heavy snow loads, and even hail. It is not unusual for a solar panel to last upwards of 25 years. With that being said, the efficiency of a solar panel will decrease over the years as a result of natural degradation. This is often the most important factor to look at when deciding whether it is time to replace your existing solar panels. At Seattle Solar, we offer a range of services to not only assist our customers with the installation of their solar system, but also to maintain it over time. Our solar experts can help you determine whether a solar panel replacement is needed and provide you with professional installation assistance.
Solar technology is continuously advancing, which means that newer solar panels are more durable, efficient, and reliable than ever. Premium solar products can easily last for 35 years or more if properly and securely installed. While the solar panels themselves do not require a large amount of maintenance, keeping your solar panels free of debris such as branches can help to prevent physical damage to them.
Aging can affect the efficiency of your solar panels. Research suggests that the amount of energy produced by a solar panel decreases by approximately 0.8% each year. The rate of degradation can be even lower with higher quality solar panels. While there is no way to stop this natural aging and loss of efficiency, having your solar system regularly inspected can help let you know when it is time to start considering replacing your old solar panels.
In most cases, solar panels are replaced due to degradation and decreased efficiency. However, it may also be necessary or more cost-effective to replace a solar panel that has been severely damaged by an external force or malfunctioning due to faulty internal components. Our solar engineers can help you assess the condition of your solar panel to determine whether a repair or replacement is the best course of action. In the event that a replacement is needed, we will remove your existing panel for you and replace it with a brand new, high quality panel of the same type. Our company offers competitively priced solar services and exceptional solar products to ensure that our customers get the maximum value for their money.
