Pecan Street Launches “Check Engine Light” Service for Solar Panel Owners
Free iOS and Android App for Solar Panel Owners with eGauge Systems Launched After Pecan Street Finds Maintenance Issues Usually Go Undetected and Unaddressed for Weeks or Months
How Do You Know Your Solar Panels Are Working Correctly? You Probably Don’t
A new study from Pecan Street has found that most solar PV systems only experience minor issues and that solar PV is largely maintenance-free. But the minor issues can often impede power production for days, weeks or even longer. In most cases, the homeowners had no idea there was a problem. “It’s a minor issue. But by not detecting it, it becomes an issue where you’re losing value on your solar panel even though it’s a $5 issue to fix,” said McCracken, CEO of Pecan Street.
