Dunton Group Solar performance inspection

solar inspection

When one of the premier golf courses in the country needs to check the performance of their solar system, they call Dunton Group for a professional inspection and performance report. It’s recommended to check the performance of your solar system on a regular basis to ensure the system is performing at its optimum. 


As part of the regular maintenance of the existing solar solution, The National check how the panels and overall system are performing with the help of Dunton Group. The National are committed to using renewable energy with a 100kw system producing approximately 30% of their energy consumption at their Cape Schanck location.  


Being so close to the ocean provides an exceptional backdrop for the course.  Though the harsh environment does pose some challenges. The outer casing of some inverters had started to rust causing water to penetrate the PV-DB switchboard damaging the inverter. As a result of the water damage 1/3 of the system was not operational. Luckily the client undertakes regular maintenance and performance inspections, meaning that the down time is kept to a minimum. 

Often the damage to inverters or panels can be difficult to identify without close inspection, this is why it is important to regularly inspect your system to help make sure it is performing at its best.

By checking the performance of your solar system regularly you have the peace of mind knowing that the system is performing at its peak and identify and resolve any issues quickly.   


With the coastal location of the system it is important to monitor the system performance regularly. 

The existing inverters on site had some rust on the housing enclosure which has caused some water damage. By identifying the issue early the down time of the system is minimized and once fixed the club can continue to enjoy the full benefits of renewable energy.
