Solar Repair and Maintenance Services
Although the current generation of solar panels and microinverters are guaranteed for 25 years, some of the older inverters—which were state-of-the-art in their day—had a 5-10 year lifespan. Cinnamon Solar provides solar repair and maintenance services for all popular solar equipment, including SMA, Xantrex, Fronius, Enphase and SolarEdge, as well as equipment installed by other solar companies.
If your system or components are under warranty, we will work with the manufacturer to get your equipment repaired for free. If the components are out of warranty, we will quote you a fair price to get your system repaired and running quickly. We are experienced with resolving problems relating to wiring, inverter faults, and nesting birds/rodents. Costs for an initial service call are $185, and will be credited for equipment under warranty.

Solar Panel Cleaning
Heavy rains do a pretty good job of cleaning solar panels. However, if you are in a dry or dusty area, accumulated soiling may significantly affect the performance of your system. To learn more about cleaning your solar panels, listen to our podcast entitled How Often Should I Clean My Solar Panels?
For home solar systems we can usually do a complete panel cleaning for $200 to $300 depending on system size and roof type.
For commercial systems, especially those installed at low tilt angles, we will provide you with a quick quote and savings estimate for a complete panel cleaning (recommended every 2-3 years, especially in dusty areas).
