Beware of low-quality solar panels. We found burnt solar cells in these modules.
We came across an interesting solar panel fault while checking this clients solar panels.
This client had “isolation fault” come up on his solar inverter. He called us to do a comprehensive solar inspection, what we found amazed even us! These panel are 3 years old and almost all of the 20 panels have corrosion and a few have seriously badly burnt solar cells. This has burnt right through the backing on the solar panels and has made the system unsafe!
Unfortunately for this homeowner these panels are no longer available and will need to be replaced. The supposed 10-year panel warranty is no longer available as the manufacturer has closed down! This is an expensive lesson, as to why you should do your own research on the product and ensure the panels are high quality! Don’t go for the cheapest as you will most likely get burnt!
Be very wary of cheap TV specials, we see them failing every other day! Go for a good quality system and installer!
