O&M And Battery Replacement Work At Olowora
1. Solar Panel Cleaning.
During the harmattan season in Nigeria, especially for those who live around busy untarred roads or other places where dust is constantly being raised by human activities, construction works, or in wintry places where the winds are always busy, there will be concerns about the solar panels being shaded by layers of dust. While the rains and winds always helps to wash off the dust, the efficiency of solar panels in periods of no rain and reduced wind, will drop significantly.
Without knowing that this is significant reason for the drop in the production of their solar panels, our clients often call to report that their batteries have failed. Before attending to other components, we first clean the panels. In most cases, this alone restores their performance to optimum.
A variation of this problem occurs during the rainy season. During the rains, the days are often cloudy. This also causes the performance of the panels to drop significantly. Our engineers often respond to complaints at this time by advising our clients to expect the drop in the performance of their panels with a drop in the amount of sunlight. And to look to grid power for charging their systems.
