How Long Do Solar Panels Last?


Living in sunny Mackay and considering adding some solar panels to your home? There’s no doubt that Mackay homeowners and business owners are switching to solar because while solar is a good option no matter where you live, it certainly helps when you live in an area known for being sunny. But a big question those who are new to solar have is how long the solar panels last, and whether it’s worth risking such a big investment.

Short answer – it’s worth it. Here’s why.

Solar panels have a long lifespan

The good news is that solar panels have a lifespan of around twenty-five years or even more. Considering we’re replacing our phones every few years, this is a welcome change. But to get the most out of your solar panel, there are a few things to consider.

Choose the brand wisely. Do your research, and make sure you choose a reputable brand that’s going to give you the best of the best. See what their other customers have to say and ask them as many questions as you need to make sure they’re the right ones for you. Cheaply manufactured solar panels will simply not last as long as they should, which is why we always recommend learning as much about your solar installer as possible.

Keep your panels clean. Solar panels won’t work as well if they’re full of dirt or debris. While solar panels need very little maintenance and are often cleaned by a good day of rain, it’s still important to clean them regularly. This doesn’t have to be much more than a brush or a hose, but the cleaner you keep your solar panels the better they’ll work and the longer they will last.

Get your solar panels checked. Routine maintenance is important, but it’s also just as important to consider performance checks to make sure your solar panels are working at optimal efficiency. This can be done every 1 – 3 years and will keep your solar panels in good shape.

We received quotes from 3 different solar companies, and Tropical Solar was an easy choice. Not only were they very competitively priced, but Hunter was super informative and not pushy at all. Highly recommend 👌
