Expected Solar Production
Maybe you have a new solar system, or you have an old solar system, or you’ve just adopted a solar system. How do you know if it's working correctly? In other words, how do you know if your solar system is producing what it’s supposed to be producing and what you paid for?
If you can’t answer this question, don’t feel bad. Without more detail and some analysis, it’s actually impossible to know with any semblance of accuracy. Solar production is a function of many factors. Some of those factors include the number of panels, the panel size, their orientation and efficiency, not to mention the inverter and wire specifications. Clearly, this is not a simple task.
So how do you find out what your expected solar production should be?
Calculating your production
The experts at HelioPower do this every day for both new systems in design and for older systems undergoing maintenance and testing. A quick call to HelioPower can get you in touch with the right person to get a complete and accurate analysis of your system. The analysis that will tell you whether your system is right on par with where it should be or if it’s deficient in some way. Often these deficiencies are simple in nature but have dramatic impact on system output. Any deficiencies in system output are costing you money in lost production. If your system is performing below expected solar production, HelioPower service technicians are equipped to inspect and repair the issue to prevent any system down-time and lost revenue.
The standard residential analysis for a single solar system and meter connection is $245. This includes having a technician sent out to your solar array to conduct module count, module type verification, wiring inspection, inverter analysis, orientation and ambient conditions. Then, HelioPower engineers use this information, engineering data bases and computer modeling programs to determine your expected solar production on a month by month basis. This ensures that your system continues to operate as expected, and if not, to at least get your system back on track. Remember, you can’t fix what you don’t know is broken!
