Solar Panel Cleaning Services
PV and Solar Water collectors
Solar panel maintenance is often regarded as unnecessary, customers often believe that as the panels are out on a roof then they are virtually self-cleaning. This is a misconception.
Solar panel performance can degrade by 30%+ without adequate cleaning. To maintain optimal energy production, solar arrays require periodic solar panel cleanings especially in areas of high airborne particulate
There are many external influences which can contribute to solar panels becoming obstructed and lead to inefficient production. Road grime, dust, salt spray and bird droppings are just a few, left uncleaned, these can cause a higher degradation rate to your system. Solar panels laying on a flat roof are more susceptible to build up of grime and require more regular cleaning.
Cleaning of your solar panels should be part of your regular maintenance, just like cleaning your gutters.

Why Should My Panels Be Cleaned?
The short: to improve the output of energy you get from your solar panels. Accumulations of contaminants such as dirt, pollen, bird droppings and debris block your solar panels from the sun.

Doesn't The Rain Clean Them?
