Renewable energy system repair and maintenance
The Bushlight Repair and Maintenance Program has been helping communities and service providers maintain remote area solar power systems since 2006 through:
- System audits
- minor upgrades to bring systems up to Australian Standards
- for solar and electrical safety
- an annual service regime and
- unscheduled maintenance if there is a problem with a system.
The program frequently identifies system faults that would otherwise go undetected. Bushlight can then project manage repair work to provide more reliable energy services for community residents.
Five households at the central Australian community of Ankelewelengkwe had 40 faulty solar panels identified by the Bushlight maintenance team. With Bushlight support warranty guarantees were able to be enforced and the communities investment was protected.
