Our Solar Maintenance Offerings

Solar panels generally require little maintenance. They’re extremely durable and typically should last for many years. However, any issues with solar panel performance are usually related to electricity production, which is why we recommend monitoring your system’s production. By paying attention to changes in production, you can identify and address issues proactively. Therefore our solar operations and maintenance services are set up as follows:

  • Preventative Maintenance- On-site inspections and repairs for revenue performing and other mission critical systems.
  • Service and Repairs- Individually contracted services. This includes: solar panel cleaning for residential and commercial systems, diagnostics, repairs, energy analytics, commissioning/re-commissioning, asset acceptance, etc.

Solar Service Plans from Helio Energy Solutions

  1. Solar Protection Plan – Solar protection plans offer a layer of security beyond solar warranties, addressing performance of the system that can degrade due to normal wear and tear, thereby costing you lost production and lost revenue.

  3. Solar Production Guarantee- Includes everything in the Operations and Maintenance Plan plus an output production guarantee.
