Residential and Commercial Solar Panel Cleaning
When your solar panels are dirty, they don’t produce as much electricity.
That means you’re not getting as much return on your investment, whether you are producing electricity to feed into the grid or just trying to power your own house.
Why do you need to clean your solar panels?
Many people don’t worry about cleaning their solar panels. People think that the rain will wash off any dirt anyway, so why bother?
The best way to understand why you need to clean your solar panels is to look at your car windscreen. Even if you never park under a tree for a bird to poop on it, your windscreen still gets dirty? There is dust in the air, and when it rains the water brings that dust down on everything, instead of washing it away as you would expect. This is why your car looks dirtier after it rains. Your windscreen wipers keep the centre part of your windscreen clear, but on the outside edge, where the wipers don’t reach, it is always cloudy, grimy, and hard to see through.
This is exactly what happens to your solar panels if you do not get them cleaned regularly. They get cloudy and grimy, and light does not go through them very well. This has many negative consequences for your solar panels, such as:
- Reducing the output of the panel.
- Shortening the life of the panel.
- Possibly voiding your warranty.
