Energy efficiency is a major objective for the future of Romania and the European Union. In October 2012, the European Union adopted a new renewable energy policy and set a target of achieving at least 20% of the EU's renewable energy needs by 2020. The use of electrical energy generated from solar energy is being studied more and more. Maintenance activity of a photovoltaic system is important to ensure the continuity of energy supply and cost reduction. This paper proposed a type of approach to maintenance activity at photovoltaic systems. A good management of maintenance activity is very important to lower production costs.
