Why clean Solar Panels?

Due to the exposed state of solar panels, they are subject to the build up of dirt, soil and pollution deposited by wind and rain. This dirt adds a film of grime on the outside of the solar panels dramatically reducing the amount of sunlight the panels can absorb. This inefficiency therefore has the effect of reducing the amount of profit they return to you throughout the year.

Further, Solar Panel Cleaning is a necessary part of the system maintenance as
all manufacturers require the cleaning of your solar panel system to maintain its warranty. A regular cleaning programme will maximize your system’s potential as well as protect your valuable investment. Most manufacturers recommend the cleaning of your solar panels every 6 months.
We encourage you to examine your personal system guarantee for further information.

How much electricity do dirty solar panels lose?

While many factors impact solar power production in solar panels, experts agree that you will lose power. That loss may range as high as 25% in some areas according to the National Renewable Energy laboratory (NREL). Individual dealers have reported losses as high as 30% for some customers who failed to ever clean their panels.

How much will it cost to have my solar panels cleaned?

Cleaning the panels can cost from as little as £25, but is dependant on three simple factors:
Accessibility – How difficult is it to access your solar panels?
Current condition – How dirty are your solar panels right now?
Frequency – How often would you like your solar panels cleaned?

How will my solar panels be cleaned?

We have invested heavily in the latest cleaning technology which is ideal for cleaning solar panels. This cleaning technology uses a pure water system incorporating telescopic carbon fiber poles. This laboratory grade pure water has had all the fluoride, calcium, chlorine and other minerals filtered away, so it cannot leave any cleaning residue on the panels. The cleaning process will also remove any green algae away to return the solar panels to their optimal performance !
