A well-made panel will last for 20 to 25 years. If after this period the cover has started to deteriorate, it is relatively inexpensive to recover the panel and it will operate for a similar period of time.
Do the Solaro solar panels need direct sunlight?
No. Ordinary daylight is all that’s required. As long as the product is placed so that the solar panel is not obscured by hedges or under a roof overhang, it will gather sunlight and transform it into DC power. It is important to clean the glass surfaces of the panel to remove dust and debris on a regular basis. Dirt will seriously affect the panel output performance.
How long will the Solaro products run during the day?
Solar products require direct sunlight for maximum efficiency. Factors such as placement, cloud cover and time of the year all affect operating time and intensity. For best results, solar panels should be placed in open areas, away from bushes, trees or structures that cast shadows on the unit’s solar cell.
Can I use the Solaro Aire™ or the Solaro Day™ at night?
You can use the products at night if you want to run them off battery or off the existing AC in your structure, through an inverter. Ask your sales person how to accomplish running the Solaro Aire™ or Solaro Day™ at night.
How easy is it to install the products?

Does the Solaro Day™ require any maintenance?
Only an occasional cleaning of the solar panel is needed to ensure optimal performance. It is important to clean the glass surfaces of the panel because dust and debris will seriously affect the panel output performance.
