Are you getting the maximum performance out of your solar power system? Has your solar inverter been set up properly or panel layout and configuration designed or connected correctly? Are all your solar panels even connected?
If you don’t think your solar power system is performing as expected, these are all questions you might be asking yourself and if so you should consider having your system tested and serviced. Over the years of installing and servicing solar systems some of the common problems I have come across affecting your system performance include one parallel string not even ever connected, panel configuration not correctly designed for inverter voltage range, incorrectly programmed voltage parameters in inverters – this is especially common in the old Aurora inverters now ABB and the Fronius ‘Snap’ inverter range. Your system may appear to be working correctly but you are not getting the maximum benefit from your solar power system. As an accredited Fronius service partner we can check all these settings for you.
Another common occurrence with Fronius inverters is the extended warranty has not been activated. For the last few years Fronius have been running a promotion extending the standard warranty from five to ten years, but this needs to be activated after installation to take effect. With many serviced office based solar marketing companies using subcontractors for installations this process has not been completed. The subcontractor isn’t getting paid enough to do this and the solar company is on to the next sale leaving the customer thinking they have a ten year warranty when in fact they don’t.
