HOW LONG CAN A COMMERCIAL SOLAR PANEL SYSTEM LAST?
One of the most common questions that we at Interconnection Systems, Inc. receive from our commercial customers is in relation to the lifespan of their business’s solar panels. It is no surprise that most people want to know how long they can expect their panels to last, after all they have spent thousands of dollars having them installed. And for those thinking about installing solar panels in their commercial property, it is hard to make a call on the upfront cost of going solar without first knowing how long you can expect the panels to last. With your solar panels designed to be an ample energy source to replace electricity usage for many decades, it makes sense that you should want to know how much bang you’re getting for your buck.
Most solar panels last between 30 and 40 years. Every year, a panel loses approximately about half of a percent of its power rating. So, 25 years after the initial install, a panel will likely only produce 87.5% compared to when it started. Now, this doesn’t mean that panels will stop producing electricity after 35 years, it just means, at this juncture, energy production will have declined by what manufacturers consider a significant amount.
As mentioned above, recent research from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory has found that solar panel output falls anywhere from 0.5 to 0.8 percent of its power rating each year. This rate of decline is referred to as the solar panel degradation rate, and will vary depending on which panel brand is used. For instance, premium level manufacturers offer degradation rates as low as 0.3% per year.
Another important point to remember when you are considering investing in solar panels is that they come with many different types of warranties. Most manufacturers will offer both an equipment warranty to certify against any manufacturing defects, and a performance warranty to guarantee that your panels will produce base-standard of electricity. In essence, this solar panel performance warranty, which generally lasts 25 years, can give you a better sense of how much electricity to expect from your solar panel over time.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO EXTEND THE LIFESPAN OF YOUR SOLAR PANELS?
For the most part, solar panels are extremely durable and almost all manufacturers will test their panels to make sure that they can withstand high winds and heavy snow loads, while many other solar panels are specifically tested to ensure that they can withstand falling hail. Another major benefit of solar panels is that they don’t usually have any moving parts and as such, require very little maintenance. That being said, the reality is that a well-maintained solar panel will stand the test of time better than one that isn’t adequately taken care of.
So, if you want to make sure that your solar panels last as long as possible, then brushing snow, removing leaves and tree branches from them as well as maximizing sun exposure is a guaranteed way of doing this. On top of that, buying superior-standard solar panels will lead to a longer solar panel lifespan and a higher quality product for your home. With Interconnection Systems, Inc. in charge of your solar panel needs, you can rest assured that you will receive the best possible service for less.

Are Commercial Solar Panels Hard to Maintain?
Solar panels require very little maintenance. Unlike other appliances, there are no moving parts that will break down. To make sure they are functioning at peak efficiency, it’s worth getting them checked once or twice a year for debris and dirt since they won’t be as effective if there is anything blocking the panel from absorbing sunlight.
