System maintenance

Maintenance of your solar or battery storage system


After installation, you will be responsible for ensuring that your equipment is maintained in good working order. Your installer should be able to provide appropriate instructions along with maintenance information in the system manual. Safe work practices for any maintenance tasks must be followed.

Check with your solar installer about the length of warranty on the equipment and keep in mind that solar inverters and batteries generally have a shorter life than the solar panels. Ausgrid operated solar power systems for over 15 years, with many of the installations needing inverter repair or replacement around 10 years after installation of the system.

For further information on the maintenance of your system please refer to:
