Getting the Most out of your Solar System

Keep your solar panels clean

Clean panels can generate up to 30% more energy than dirty panels. Regularly check and clean your solar panels, especially during the dry season when dust and dirt are more prevalent

Optimize solar panel placement

Ensure that your solar panels are installed in a location where they receive maximum sun exposure, ideally facing north. A professional solar installer can help you determine the best placement for your panels.

Use energy during the day

Try to use energy-intensive appliances like washing machines, dishwashers, and pool pumps during the day when your solar panels are generating the most electricity

Monitor your energy usage

By monitoring your energy usage, you can identify ways to reduce your energy consumption and increase the amount of solar energy you use yourself, rather than selling it back to the grid

Consider battery storage

A battery storage system allows you to store excess solar power during the day for use when the sun is not shining. This can help maximize your energy self-sufficiency and reduce reliance on grid electricity.
