Why should I clean my solar panels?
Your purchase of solar panels represents a significant investment. Allowing solar panels to become dirty due to dirt, dust, airborne particles, bird droppings and leaves can greatly diminish your solar power output. In other words, you are not getting the production you paid to get. If solar panels are never cleaned you not only lose a significant amount of power, you also risk losing the panels.
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. The loss may range as high as 30% in some areas according to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory for some customers who fail to ever clean their panels.
Elite Cleaning Services can gain access to most panels from the ground and with the use of PURE WATER combined with our specialist brush heads there will be no residue left behind like you would get with soap and water (which reflects/blocks the sunlight you're wanting to capture) and will leave you with a clean and efficient solar panel.
How often should I clean them?
Elite recommend that you have the panels cleaned at least once every quarter. We can arrange a free visit in the first instance and check access at your property. We will then give you a quotation based on our attendance every three months. Should you require a one-off clean we would also be more than happy to provide a quotation for this and carry out the cleaning all in one go.
