Monitoring Your System Performance

Home and business owners alike install solar for a variety of reasons: they want to save money, they want to be more green and environmentally-friendly, or they're just plain sick of shelling out money to the utility company month after month. There's a good chance that you fall into one of those categories, and you have chosen to go solar as a result. With summer just around the corner, you want to be sure that your system is performing to your expectations—but you might be wondering how to do that.

Are you getting everything you deserve out of your solar system?

Let's start with the basics. The great thing about SunPower panels is that they require minimal maintenance, and are also equipped with a 25 year warranty. But that doesn't mean you should just “set it and forget it”, as the old infomercial mantra goes. If you've got a high-tech solar array on your home, you're most likely going to be interested in seeing how it's performing. How can you be certain that your system is producing to your expectations? Thanks to SunPower's monitoring system—which all SunPower customers have access to—it's not as difficult as it may seem to make sure everything is operating properly.

When you log into your SunPower monitoring system from the SunPower website or your mobile app, not only can you see how much power you have used throughout the day, you can also see what your solar system is producing on a daily, monthly, and yearly basis. This is an excellent way to optimize your investment and see just how much you're saving in utility expenses.

If you notice that your system's readings are not what you expected them to be, it may be time to schedule a service call. Of course, your automatic instinct will be to contact the company that installed your system. But if your installer isn't answering your call, you may be at a loss for what to do next.

That's when you stop worrying and call Valley Solar. Tell us about your problem, and we'll handle the rest.
