Here’s Why You Should Clean Your Solar Panels
Like your Air Conditioner that runs better when well-serviced, your solar panels also need equal attention for more efficiency. There are various benefits of cleaning solar panels and according to data, clean solar panels can improve energy production by 5-10%.
One of the most common enemies to your solar system is dust which can build grime and dust bunnies over the years that hinder your solar performance. As soon as your panels are out in the clean air, dust starts to settle down, blocking sunlight, and eventually reducing their efficiency and costing you more money.
So, it is best to clean your solar panels when they get dirty. However, make sure that they are dirty enough to dent energy production. To measure if the efforts of cleaning your solar panels are worthwhile, you can compare panel-level outputs if the system is producing less-than-expected energy production when soiled vs. when it is thoroughly cleaned.
Cleaning your solar panels is not that hard. Using a water hose, isopropyl alcohol for stubborn stains, and ending your cleaning with a squeegee can help you keep your solar panels stain-free. If you do not have time, you can always hire us!
