KEEP YOUR SOLAR PV SYSTEM RUNNING SMOOTHLY FOR YEARS WITH A PROFESSIONAL INSPECTION

Solar PV systems are an excellent investment for your home or business, but there’s no guarantee they will continue to run at peak performance levels for years without any maintenance. That’s why regular solar inspections by certified professionals like the ones at PEP solar is one of the best investments that you can make.

A Complete System Checkup

Our solar professionals will look over your entire system to ensure that it’s running properly. During a typical inspection, all the electrical connections will be verified, the inverters, disconnects, fuses, panels, and breakers will be examined as well. A total of 45 testing points is checked across the system to avoid skipping over any potential fail points or problems that could be building up. Our technicians understand NEC 690 code and can work with the controllers and computers to uncover any potential problems in the programming as well as in the physical connections and hardware of the setup.

Use Only Certified Professionals

Pep Solar only allows carefully trained professionals to visit homes and businesses and inspect the systems. Only certified professionals have the knowledge to decipher NEC 690 code and the experience to properly diagnose hardware issues in your system. You wouldn’t trust your health to an unlicensed doctor, so don’t trust your solar system to inexperienced or untrained technicians.
