How Often Do I Clean My Solar Panels?

A Minimum of Twice Per Year

We of Solar Negotiators give consumers the information and tools to make decisions. The Central Valley has a high rate of air pollution. This is due to heavy traffic flow and condensed areas of industrial manufacturers. These factors can contribute to needing your panels cleaned on a bi-annual basis. There are steps you can take to identify when you need to get your solar panels cleaned. One major way to know is when the electricity production levels of your solar energy system decrease.

How Often Do I Check My Solar Inverter?

Once Per Month

If you fail to check your inverter, it can have a negative impact on your solar energy system investment. We recommend checking your inverter at least once a week. This prevents costly consequences that occur with underproduction. Over the course of several months, small system malfunctions can add up to worse issues.

How Do I Read My True-Up Bill?

Your electric meter on your solar panels is “bidirectional". This means, your electric meter runs backward to measure the solar energy you produce.  It also will run forward each time you pull electricity from the grid. PG&E takes your “net” energy difference to reimburse you. This happens by either adding a credit to your account or bills you for using more energy than you produced. As stated earlier, you will receive an annual and a monthly bill statement. It is important to know how to read both, so you know if you’ve accrued any charges you weren’t expecting. Monitoring your system allows you to catch any irregularities and avoid costly repairs.
