Why check voltage readings and fuses

by | Mar 14, 2019

It is important to regular service and inspect your Hawaii commercial PV system to ensure it is properly functioning.  Often times, the string fuses can blow resulting in significant under production.  1 string will have between 5-15 panels on it, so if the fuse blows you lose the production from all of those panels.  

When Hawaii PV Partners performs our inspection services, we typically find between 2-10 blown string fuses depending on the system size.  10 blown fuses could be the equivalent of 150 PV panels on the roof doing nothing.  You paid for them, but they are not producing any power for you at all.

PV parts do fail, we will find and repair them for you.

Even if the fuses are good, the MC4 connectors that connect panels together can melt, causing the string to fail.  Although less common, we do frequently find melted connectors which also eliminates the entire strings production.
