Jul 30 Are My Solar Panels Working?
After installation of your panels, we know there are so many feelings of excitement and anxiety. How will you navigate this point forward? Well, we are always here to help. Commonly, we know it can be difficult to understand a system that you have never worked with or seen before. Because of this, our customers commonly ask how to tell when their system is working. We have provided a few tips for you to follow in order to ensure that your panels are working correctly.
Color of Your Lights:
When navigating your new solar system it is important to know where everything for your panels is. First step in this process is finding your inverter. Once your inverter is found, you can do a simple “health” check on your solar panel system. The color of the lights that are flashing on your inverter is a large key to knowing whether or not your panels are working properly or not. If there is a green flashing light on your inverter this is a good sign. If the green light is lit and flashing, this means that your system is functioning properly. However, if your inverter is not blinking green then it may be blinking red or orange. If there is a red or orange light blinking, then this means then there may be a system event or fault with your solar panel system.
Check Your Bill:
While we know that if you lease your panels you are paying a set rate, we still want you to be aware of your bills and how to properly be able to read them. If you at some point find yourself paying more or less, then it is important to examine this change. On your meter and also on your bill you should be able to see how much energy your panels are producing. This then allows you to see the proper amount that you should be charged for that month.
