You can see detailed generation figures for our solar panels over the last 5 years here. These show generation by month as well as year and peak daily generation seen by month.
|Solar Panels 5 Years Review|
The panels themselves have been great and no real issues apart from pigeons finding them to be a perfect place to build a nest. Fortunately our panels have a velux window in the middle of them which means we are able to open it and get access to the underside of the solar panels. Others with pigeon problems are not quite so lucky!
What problems have we had with our solar panels?
Apart from pigeons the only other problem we have had was electrical. We discovered earlier in 2016 that the solar panel inverter was cutting out. On investigation the electrician found that one of the terminals on the solar MCB in the consumer unit had shorted due to the wire being loose.

Luckily it was discovered in time and we only lost a few days generation in January - possibly the best month it could have happened!
