Part 3

Installing Solar. Looking after your solar investment

When installing Solar, it is important to ensure you continue to get the most out of your solar investment, ultimately, by maintaining and managing your solar system. In fact, it is vital to maintain your system to ensure it is operating correctly. As a result, the system performance is maintained and the system is safe for everyone.

In our opinion, GC Energy recommends a professional audit and clean every 12 months. This is an affordable way to get the most out of your solar investment.

The benefits include:

  • Maximise the amount of energy produced by your panels
  • Maximise your energy savings
  • Ensure the longevity of your investment
  • Detect any emerging problems so they can be fixed early
  • Maintain the manufacturer warranty requirements

Did you know dirty solar panels produce up to 30% less energy! You can read more about maintaining your solar panels here.

What Customers are saying about Gold Coast Energy

"Have just had a 2kW system installed on my garage by Gold Coast Energy, after being rejected by another company saying they could not do the install as my house had tin tiles. Thank goodness Gold Coast Energy made the effort to come out and come up with an easier option for us to be able to get Solar. Wonderful friendly communication and very helpful in explaining how it all works."
