Solar panel cleaning
The cleaning of solar panels is very important to preserve their life span and correct functioning so that better performance and therefore more successful results are obtained. Part of the efficiency of a solar installation is based on transparency, and thus the cleaning of the glass that covers the panels. Filth on the surface can reduce up to 20% of the productivity.
There have been various studies to analyze and quantify the impact of dirt on the performance of solar panels. All studies agree on the need for periodic cleaning to improve their performance, but there is no consensus regarding the frequency of cleaning. The frequency will basically depend on their location, ie a more frequent cleaning is necessary for those panels that are located in mountainous areas, with many trees, near industrial areas or near agricultural areas to name a few examples.
A recent study shows how the performance of solar panels gradually decreases as time passes, due to the increase of accumulated dirt on the surface of the panels.
The cleaning of solar panels requires a fast and effective cleaning system, which is non-corrosive and does not damage the surface of the panels.
For the above mentioned reasons, we recommend to have your solar panels cleaned by professionals.
