Damage to solar panels

Types of damage

Microcracks

Microcracks are a lot harder to spot, and while the panel is still in use, it will not work as efficiently. It can lead to a reduction in output, shorten the solar panel’s life or lead to burned cells which means your panel will have to be replaced.
