Solar services & maintenance in Santa Cruz & Monterey Counties and beyond

Anderson Solar Controls is a local, family-owned business serving the greater Bay Area, Santa Cruz and Monterey Counties. We provide prompt scheduling and reliable service.

Solar Services

We have worked with all major solar panel and inverter companies over our decades in business, which makes us well positioned to assist those whose solar installation company has folded. We were established in 2001, yet had 11+ years of solar experience before. We work closely with the manufacturers, and will try to get repair costs done under their warranty policies, if possible.

Solar Maintenance

We service solar energy systems, including photovoltaic (PV), grid tie, off-grid tie, and pool/domestic water heating.

Proper maintenance is crucial for ensuring that your solar system operates at peak efficiency. We can perform regular cleaning and inspections to keep your system running smoothly.

Monitoring, and system checkups:


Let us adopt your system, so that we can monitor for performance, or troubleshoot issues. If you have micro inverters, or Solar Edge/Tygo devices, they can fail:  If caught within their warranty period, we can get new replacements, yet only charge for the R&R labor.

If monitoring is not available, we can analyze system performance at module level via electrical meters, then show you how to do this with your Utility meter


This can potentially boost PV performance 80%, Panels should be cleaned yrly, especially if near a construction site, farm, fire etc.....After a year, mold, mildew, and lichen can grow over the PV. Anytime this surface is blocked, power production can be lost exponentially....Further, we've found large pieces of moss to wick moisture into the module, which can cause an inverter ground fault error.
