What we offer

We can help you at any stage of your solar energy life cycle.

CLEAN — give your solar system a clean

less dirt makes for more light 

We recommend an annual clean.

Your solar panels can easily build up with dirt, dust, grime, bird, bat or possum droppings, lichen or salt, and pollution if you are near a busy road. Any of these will prevent your solar panels from working effectively.

Read below in our FAQs for some common cleaning questions.

SERVICE — give your solar system a health check

keep your solar panels in tip-top shape

We can provide you with a health check and solar report.

When you book a service with Nickel Energy we’ll provide your system a thorough run through.

If there are any recommended repairs we’ll provide you with a quote for this additional maintenance work.

Does rain clean my solar panels?

We’d all love to have our car cleaned by leaving it out in the rain. Simple. Unfortunately though, dust, general grime and pollution all form a fine seal over the car that often becomes thicker with rainfall. Likewise, leaving your solar panels to be ‘washed by the rain’ doesn’t clean solar panels either. Regular cleaning is a form of preventative maintenance for solar panels, helping panels to remain free of hotspots, minimising microcracks and ensuring maximum energy efficiency of your solar system.

What causes damage to my solar panels?

Elements such as wind and snow can be enough over time to stress solar panels. The effects produced by stress that appear on solar panels are  commonly called hot spots and microcracks.
