Our Basic Program
The Solar System Maintenance Program, quite simply, is a program that combines the necessary cleaning of the solar panels with a visual inspection of the entire solar system, from rooftop to breaker panel.
By having Emerald Coast Solar take care of your panel cleaning we are able to ensure your system remains in good working order and we can then recommend preventative maintenance on your system as necessary, as opposed to dealing with an issue once it becomes a problem.
The Solar System Maintenance Program is a yearly renewable program comprising the following:
During the year Emerald Coast Solar will come to your location 4 times (approx. every three months) and carry out the following:
1) Washdown of all solar panels.
2) Inspection of all solar panels, rooftop wiring, connections, string boxes, combiner boxes and lockout junctions.
3) Inspection of all conduit and mounting brackets.
4) Inspection of inverter and connections both into inverter and from inverter to breaker panel.
5) Emerald Coast Solar will provide you with a written report (via e-mail) with our inspection findings and any recommendatiions for preventative maintenance.
6) We will (where possible) twice per year adjust your panels to take full advantage of the seasonal changes in solar angle to maximiz power production.
You will always have the choice of proceeding with the recommended maintenance or defering maintenance to a later time.
We will never undertake correcting a maintenance issue without your prior approval.

Hurricane Protection Service
Emerald Coast Solar is pleased to be the first company to offer a hurricane protection service to a select number of our clients.
Using our trained install team, in the event of a hurricane, we will remove your panels from their location and store the panels (at your location). Following the hurricane we will then reinstall the panels back in their original location.
This service is only available to clients who have our premier service package.
While we have every confidence in our systems and their ability to withstand winds in excess of 74 miles or 120 klms per hour, hurricanes easily exceed these wind speeds and have a force that is of a different nature than normal winds.
As such we offer the following service:
We will monitor the advance of a tropical storm/hurricane with the potential of coming close enough to warrant panel removal and,
When the wind forecast is rated to exceed 74 miles or 120 klms per hour and,
If within 3 to 7 days there is the potential for the above,
We will remove all panels from their current location,
We will securely store the panels at your location,
We will, in the case of central inverters disconnect the panel wiring from the inverter and,
Disconnect the inverter from the CFE power source,
We will, in the case of panel connected micro-inverters, install protective caps on the electrical cable connectors leading to the micro-inverters and secure such caps with “zap straps”. Cost of caps to be covered by the system owner.
Following the hurricane, or at such time as the danger has past and winds will allow, we will reinstall the panels back in their original location and return the system to operation.
In the event of damage to either the panel racking system or the electrical components of the system, such damage will need to be corrected prior to reinstall of panels and return of system to full operation.
In the event that damage to either the panels, the racking system, or other components of the solar system occurs during the re and re process all repairs and or replacement and associated costs shall be the responsibility of Emerald Coast Solar.
This service covers the re and re of the panels only. All framing and electrical cables and connections etc. will remain in their original locations.
