Seek Professional Service for Repair of Solar Panels

Wayne's Solar provides experienced service and repair for all major brands of photovoltaic solar panels for pools and hot water heaters. It is not advisable to attempt to fix solar panels yourself, or to allow someone who is not a professional in the solar industry to do so. Mistakes can result in compounded problems with the solar panels and end up costing you even more. Even worse, someone could get hurt if they do not know what they are doing.

Wayne's Solar has been a trusted solar contractor in Ormond Beach, Florida for over 25 years - we can quickly address issues with any solar system including ones we have not installed ourselves. Common problems with solar panels include:
  • Damage to the glass from hail, rocks, or bullets. 
  • Loose connections causing intermittent output. 
  • Burnt terminals from oxidation and corrosion. 
  • Diode failure resulting in low voltage. 
  • Old inverters needing regular replacement.

Solar Power - Past, Present, and Future

We are currently in the midst of a green revolution: it seems like everyone is talking about sustainability, organics, recycling, and many other efficient and earth-friendly topics including solar energy.  The truth is, solar power has been a topic of interest for scientists since the 1800s when it was realized that sunlight could produce electrical energy.

In 1887 Heinrich Rudolf Hertz discovered what became commonly known as the photoelectric effect; in 1901 Nikola Tesla described it further.  It was not until 1905 that Albert Einstein published a Nobel Prize-winning scientific paper which explained the photoelectric effect in detail.  The photoelectric effect is the basis of photovoltaic solar power: photoelectrons are emitted from matter after the absorption of energy from visible light.

Today companies such as Wayne's Solar provide solar electric systems for the home using technology developed from what was once a barely understood phenomenon.  There are an abundance of energy-saving products on the market that incorporate the photoelectric effect of photovoltaics, the most popular being solar pool heating systems.  One tends to wonder if Hertz, Tesla, or Einstein had any idea that someday consumers would be using the power of the sun for solar hot water heaters?

Although the future has yet to be written, already science is working on a way to utilize solar power from satellites in space where the sun never stops shining.  Massive amounts of solar energy could be harnessed with solar panels in orbit and then transported to locations on earth using safe, low-powered microwaves.  The technology is there, it is simply a matter of figuring out a cost-effective way to get these satellites into space!
