Installing solar panels not only helps you save money but also contributes positively to the environment. In Nigeria, there’s an abundance of solar energy ready to be harnessed, making it a great opportunity to benefit from sustainable energy sources.

If you’re thinking about installing solar panels, one key consideration is their lifespan. Solar panel technology has significantly improved over the years, and modern systems can last for 15-20 years while maintaining over 90% efficiency even after 15 years.

When Should You Replace Solar Panels?

There is no specific expiration date for a solar power system. Instead, the need for replacement will depend on whether the panels continue to meet your home’s energy requirements. 

Today’s advanced solar panels are designed to maintain 90% or higher efficiency even after 20 years of use. This means you likely won’t need to worry about replacing them for a long time, given their impressive durability.

Can You Increase the Lifespan of Solar Panels?

A slight decrease in energy production over time is expected, but there are ways to extend your panels’ lifespan. Fortunately, this doesn’t require much work on your end. Many of the following suggestions can be addressed even before installing your panels.

To enhance the durability of your solar panels, start by selecting an experienced installation team. Proper installation is crucial, as poor setup can lead to damage from weather or other unforeseen issues.

Another important step is choosing high-quality panels, which you can get with Kärtel Solar. We use top-tier systems equipped with the latest technology.

Regarding maintenance, you typically won’t need to clean your panels often unless you encounter a noticeable decrease in energy production. If this occurs, schedule a check-up as soon as possible. Promptly addressing any issues can extend the life of your system and prevent more serious problems. Sometimes, a simple cleaning to remove dirt build-up can resolve the issue.
