At Pacific Panel Cleaners, our skilled technicians execute a thorough investigation and service of your solar equipment. They routinely find a variety of equipment issues ranging from “Mother Nature”, or lazy prior workmanship to potentially hazardous conditions when we inspect new customers systems and structures.
We strive to make our clients’ solar system the best, most efficient and powerful that they can be! Here are some examples of our quality work.
Birds can be messy and bird droppings on your panels can reduce efficiency just as much as dirt and mold.
Your panels might not look too dirty from the ground but this is what we see close up.
Don’t let the bird dropping build up this much before calling us.
Your home may be more prone to moldy solar panels. Mold can build up quickly and really reduce the amount of light that gets through to the panels.
It might seem like the rain washes your panels but just like your car windshield, not everything gets removed by the rain. This is what we found the day after a rainstorm.
They need to be sealed into junction boxes to prevent water from getting in. This hole was drilled and not filled back in when they drilled the new hole on the left.
These panels have an assortment of buildup; dirt, bee pollen, bird droppings and algae growth. Luckily, we’re able to remove these without a problem.
Construction dust builds up quickly in industrial areas of the island.
We don’t just clean your panels. We also check out your entire system and clean anything we find that might be dirty like this intake screen on an inverter.
Your solar hot water panels need to be cleaned too. Mold builds up just as easily on them.
Extreme dirt build up on a flat panel system in Mililani.
It’s easy to see the film of dirt on the panels when you get close to them.
When mold buildup is this bad, not much light is getting through to your panels.
The closer you live to the ocean the more likely it is that you have salt spray on your panels. If they’re flat panels, the salt water can pond on the panels.
Electrical tape can be great for repairs inside the home, not so much for solar panel systems outside in the elements. When you don’t use stainless steel screws, the can rust quickly.
• Commercial systems can be huge and the equipment can often blend in with the roof. These conduit pipes going across the walkway should have been painted a bright color. • This is a burnt cell on a panel.
End clamps don’t hold your panels securely if they’re not tight, like this one. Wires shouldn’t be hanging on the ground like this. They should be tightly tucked under the panels.
Panels shouldn’t be sitting on the roof like this. This could result in damaging the shingles and possibly lead to roof leaks. These panels were not placed properly. One row shouldn’t be sitting on top of the other row.
These inverts were placed too close to each other. One inverter is covering the exhaust on the other inverter. This junction box lid that’s not screwed down properly, water could get into the box.
Weeds and grasses can grow under panels on commercial roofs and come up through the cracks between them. The first rule in electronics, turn the power on!
Insects can be pests in more than one way wreaking havoc on electrical equipment. We’ll check out your system and remove any insects we find.
