WHY SOLAR PANEL CLEANING?
Solar panel cleaning is essential for maintaining optimal solar system performance. Regular cleaning of your system keeps your warranty in tact, increases solar output greatly, and most importantly, saves you money in the long term.
IT'S THE LITTLE THINGS
Did you know that the more light that hits your panels, the more power it will generate? Dust, water marks, bird droppings and other substances such as dirt and grime act like a blanket and prevents sun light from penetrating your panels.
WHAT'S THE BIG DEAL
In fact, it is a big deal...
If your panels are dirty, then they can't produce energy. The National Energy Laboratory says dirty panels can reduce panel efficiency up to 25% and other studies by various Universities double that figure up to 50% which means you aren't getting the maximum return on investment from your panels and losing money.
Now that's a BIG deal.
HERE'S WHAT WE CAN DO
We are available to clean rooftop solar panel systems on your home or business, solar carports, and even large ground solar systems. Beyond just conducting a cleaning service, our experts perform a visual inspection of the entire solar array in search of any anomalies to ensure productivity is at maximum production.
At Google's campus located in Mountain View, CA, they have a 1.6 Megawatt Solar Panel array. After 15 months of operation they had their systems cleaned and found that their energy output nearly doubled. Eight months after their initial cleaning they cleaned their system again and found that their solar production increased by 36% Google's conclusion found that cleaning these solar panels is the #1 way to maximize solar energy production.
PUTTING INTO PERSPECTIVE
Cleaning your solar is just like cleaning your car. In the desert climate your car is exposed to all sorts of elements. This goes the same with your solar. For comparison, what happens to your windshield if you let your car go months on end without giving it a wash and scrub? Dust, dirt, animal droppings and other substances build up and your car is extremely dirty resulting in you being unable to clearly see out of your windshield. The same goes with solar panels, just as you can't see out of your windshield, the sun can't see into your solar panels. This decreases your solar productivity and loses you money. On average, the resulting loss of solar productivity ranges any where from 20% to a high of 50%, 20% of your $30k solar system is 6,000 dollars, that's 6,000 dollars you are instantly loosing out on your investment.
WHAT IF I JUST LET THE RAIN WASH MY SOLAR OR USING A HOSE?
Letting rain clean your panels is not a fundamental cleaning method for the following reasons:
-Water acts as a magnet to particles, especially in windy areas where a lot of dirt is prone to adrift and stick to your panels.
-Rain water doesn't ensure a deep clean to get the "hard" particles off.
-Rain creates streaks on solar panel surfaces which allows for a firm foundation for particles to collect on the surface of panels.
-Light rain collects all those particles floating in the air and when they land on solar panels, the water evaporates and leaves particles it brought with it behind resulting in particle build up.
-If you've used a hose you have probably noticed that the water left behind hard to clean water spots, this is due to the many different minerals and deposits in the public water system.
Essentially, this all cumulates and acts like a blanket and prevents sunlight from penetrating your panels. Letting the rain and using a hose is just as bad as not cleaning your panels.
