The Sun Will Melt Away that Nor’Easter Snow - Solar Panels: Lifetime Productivity and Maintenance Costs
Published 3/8/2018 @ 8am EST
With the unpredictable weather in Massachusetts, you may think that owning a solar system can be difficult to maintain, thus effecting it’s lifetime productivity. The good news is that is not true! Over the years, it has become easier to maintain and afford solar panels.
There are little to no maintenance costs if the panels are installed correctly - enter Boston Solar! Our electricians are some of the most experienced and our crews are extremely reliable. Not only that, but you don’t have to worry about snow piling up on your solar panels - once the sun shines again after a storm, it will melt away. As the snow falls in Massachusetts today, sit back, relax and don't worry about cleaning the snow off your solar panels.
Good quality solar panels are built to produce energy for 25+ years, but they will last longer (there are solar systems across the country that were installed in the 70s still going strong). The solar panels that Boston Solar carries have one of the best warranties in the industry - a 25-year linear warranty guaranteeing a certain performance factor for the warranty time period. Solar panel performance will decline as solar cells degrade due to unavoidable circumstances such as UV exposure and weather cycles. However, as mentioned, they can and will continue to produce energy to power your home or business.
