Solar Panel Cleaning

How do we clean it?

There’s a huge importance to keeping the solar panels clean. But like we do with windows, they cant be just sprayed with a hose because that will leave mineral deposits on the Solar glass which will lead to hard water spots and less solar cell capacity.

This is why using pure water can keep the Solar panels cleaner for longer.

How much does it cost?

15 panels or under $100

Importance of Solar Panel Cleaning

Leaves, bird poop and airborne particles (from dirt and pollen) all dirty your solar panel investment. Dirty panels mean power loss -- grime and debris reduce the ability of the solar array to perform at full capacity. A solar array is made up of several solar modules wired together, and each solar module is made up of solar cells all mounted collectively in a frame. Solar cells, in turn, are made of semiconductor materials, such as silicon. One side of a solar cell is positive, the other negative. When sunlight hits a solar cell, it excites the electrons in the semiconductor material, and it's this energy that can be captured as electricity. If the cells aren't clean, then less sunlight is able to be absorbed and less electricity is generated.

The potential energy loss depends on the level of filth your solar panels have accumulated. Energy loss could reach 25 percent, but some reports bring the number as high as 30 percent for consumers who never clean their system
