Looking after your solar investment

Regular servicing and maintenance will ensure that your solar PV system is operating correctly and performing to its maximum capacity. The servicing and maintenance we offer comprises a full system inspection, with the system operation and performance checked.

Each system is individually designed according to its location, size and complexity. Please call or email over your system details for a detailed quotation.

Major service (once every 12 months)
£ POA
  • Visual inspection of the panels for any damage and to assess whether cleaning is required.
  • Check of a representative sample of panel fixings to ensure they are secure and free from corrosion.
  • Check of a representative sample of roof fixings to ensure they are secure and free from corrosion.
  • Check of a representative sample of mounting frames to ensure they are secure and free from corrosion.
  • Check that electrical connections are secure, clean, undamaged and free from corrosion.
  • Check that AC and DC cables and compression glands are secure and, undamaged.
  • Check that all earth bonding points are secure and free from corrosion.
  • Test of the earth connection to ensure that it complies with regulations.
  • Check to ensure that the system is adequate labelling and no safety labels are missing.
  • Test the voltage and current of each string.
  • Open and short testing of the isolation transformer.
  • Check that the MaxVisio monitoring device is operating correctly.
  • Check of each inverter to ensure that it is operating correctly.

  • Check of each inverter for external wear and tear and/or physical damage.
  • If required, removal of any dirt/dust deposits on any inverter’s air vents, filters/screens and/or the cooling fins of inverter’s heat sinks using a soft brush as per manufacturers’ advice.
  • If required, inverter’s casings and displays will be cleaned with a damp cloth as per manufacturers’ advice.
  • A written report on the system performance and condition, including any repairs required, will be provided after the service.
Minor service (once every 6 months)
£ POA
  • Visual inspection of the panels for any damage and to assess whether cleaning is required.

G59 Relay test (frequency as required)
£ POA

A test of the G59 Relay by a G59 test engineer supplied by the manufacturer of the G59 Relay. The price above is for one test.

Solar PV system training
£ POA

Half day training at the sites on the solar PV systems for approximately 20 personnel covering the operation of the system, isolation in the event of faults, carrying out checks on performance etc.

Panel cleaning (frequency as required)
£ POA

We suggest that the panels be checked for cleaning, and cleaned if required, once or twice a year. The best times for cleaning, if required, is early spring and early summer as this will ensure that the panels are cleanest during the time of maximum output and while the weather is likely to be driest. The price above is for each clean.

Servicing for all Systems

Here at SunGift we can offer an Operations & Maintenance contract on most systems that we install. Each system will be individually designed and will require a different level of service depending on the technology installed. Some systems will require maintenance to ensure maximum yields are retained; others may be to uphold certain warranties on individual components. In each case we can discuss the optimum level required for the most economical outlay.

We have extensive knowledge in solar PV systems and we often undertake O&M service contracts on systems installed by others. If you have a single installation in Devon or further afield multi-site systems that require an O&M contract, please feel free to chat through all options with us on 01392 213912.

We are also service partners with product manufacturers so if you have products installed in the South West that require maintenance, please also call us for a quotation.
