Watch Discovery Channel: Animals are everywhere in this world! Also on the rooftop where your solar panels wait – as a bait. Because some rats, martens and the whole weasel family like the rubber in the wires.
A rooftop solar generator mostly consists of a metal frame that the solar panels are screwed onto and cables and plugs underneath them. Do you really want to risk a flash from the sky? Sometimes it hits through the cellar.
As shown in the image burning solar panels is a business for experts in high-level labs. They test the quality under harsh – very harsh – conditions. This is definitely not your job!
Solar experts from all over the continent meet at The Smarter E in Munich to discover the latest innovations in solar power. Don`t miss to join pv Guided Tours and register for free.
After sales service is a big deal in solar business. First of all for the inverters. If they fail the whole system stops.
Monitoring of operating data, efficient service and preventive concepts increase the availability of solar generators. Service providers such as Solarmax go to considerable lengths to be there for installing companies in case of problems.
Inverters have faults that occur more frequently: overvoltage, improper transport, soldering joints. But it is the rare cases that give the engineers a hard time.
SolarInvert from Germany test each of their inverters at 20 to 30 percent overload. The company is small and their small inverters work at very low system voltages and high currents.
