  • Panel cleaning and removal of debris
  • System inspection and testing
  • Electrical checks to ensure all components are operating as intended
  • Reviewing the inverter display panel for recorded faults
  • Checking that access to the isolator switches has not been impeded
  • Making sure that access to the emergency procedures for shutdown and isolation are displayed.
