Testing your solar panels from time to time is crucial for keeping track of how much solar energy your panels are actually producing.
Testing will make sure you’re alerted to any variables that may cause issues with your solar panels’ performance. These can range from an overgrown branch obscuring sunlight, poor positioning for optimal exposure to the sun or a build-up of dirt and grime on the surface of the panel.
By periodically testing the efficiency of your solar panels, you can ensure they continue to produce enough energy for you and your family.
Your estimated solar output can be calculated by adding up the combined wattage of your solar panels, multiplying this number by the average hours of sunlight where you live and then deducting 25 percent from this total for variables for your solar system’s approximate daily watt-hours.
