NORMAL WEAR AND OTHER DAMAGE
Because solar panels are durable, they don’t often need repair. Their tempered glass face is strong enough to withstand debris and they virtually take care of themselves most of the time, but solar systems produce less electricity as they age. Even without damage, solar panels inevitably go through a process called degradation, losing about 1% of their abilities each year. By year 10, most solar panels will operate at 90% efficiency even without damage or dirt affecting them.
Severe weather, including hail and debris-carrying wind, can also cause damage to solar panels, leaving large cracks in the tempered glass face. Additionally, debris can cause micro scratches that reduce a solar panel’s efficiency over time by preventing sunlight from shining directly onto the cells. If a solar panel is visibly damaged even from the ground, it needs to be replaced to restore the system’s efficiency. Other parts of the system that may need repair or replacement include but are not limited to:
