To ensure optimum performance, locate photovoltaic (PV) panels in an open space or position that offers an unobstructed view of the sky. If the PV cells are subject to shadows from trees, buildings or other objects that obscure sunlight or daylight, the system’s efficiency of electricity production may be compromised.


Solar PV cells and batteries must be free of cracks or damage.


Clean the PV panels every 3-4 months or as appropriate.
The accumulation of dirt and dust or other organic material on the solar PV cells may compromise the efficiency of electricity production.

 

The installation must comply with local electrical standards for earthing or grounding.
