Abstract :

The clean sources of energy, whose optimal use minimizes the environmental impacts, producing low secondary wastes and are the most sustainable are undoubtedly “renewable technologies”. Renewable energy is way cleaner than the fossil fuels. It comprises of solar, wind, tidal,  and geothermal energy. Basically sun is the source of all the energies. As in any panel or device, maintenance is required for solar panels too. Operation and maintenance of solar panels become vital for improving their efficiency. Thus the panels need to cleaned and taken care of at regular intervals. The cost of maintenance would rely upon the number of panels and their accessibility. For cleaning purpose a water jet with low watt pump can be used throughout the year except the rainy days. Some important contents to be focused upon for the maintenance of solar pv panels include the annual cleaning for higher efficiency; mostly where the surface of the panel is degraded, thorough visual inspection of all the panels, string tests of the photo voltaic module, checking of the invertor system, maintenance report production, inspection of the cabling and the isolator distribution board, checking of the meter and the labeling , analysis of the energy production, checking of voltage and current, repair and replacement of faulty items, alert report of the roof condition. However, preventive maintenance measures can be adopted at primary level; like initial build, engineering and design of the pv panels should be focused upon, risks can be mitigated by using multiple smaller inverters than a large one, site visits should be conducted at least once or twice annually.
