After making the decision to switch to solar energy and having the panels installed, you might think the process is over. It’s important though to keep your panels well maintained and protected. After all, getting solar panels is a large investment and it’s important to protect that investment, just like you would with your home. Let’s take a look at some of the ways that you can take preventative measures to protect your solar panels and avoid needing solar panel repair in Jupiter.
Trim Back Trees
It’s important to make sure that not only any trees that would hang over the panels are trimmed back, but they are far enough away as well as to not cause any damage. Branches and other debris could fall off and land on your solar panels, especially during high winds or storms, and cause damage. It’s also important not to plant any new trees near your panels.
Be Prepared for Extreme Weather
Given that Florida is prone to strong afternoon thunderstorms that are usually packed full of lightning, it’s important to prepare for extreme weather when it comes to solar panels. That doesn’t even include the potential extreme weather that can be found during hurricane season. Installing things like a lightning conductor can keep it from causing damage, or even destroying your solar panels.
