In this paper, we use data mining techniques and formulate suitable assessment metrics to derive estimates of the State of Health (SOH) of stand-alone solar home systems. Data is provided from a company with significant numbers of such systems in Africa. The systems in question contain a PV panel, lead-acid battery and a series of DC loads. Data mining allows us to not only estimate the SOH of the battery, but also infer the health of other system components.
