Does it Increase Production?
The two most obvious advantages to cleaning your solar panels are maximizing their production and your financial savings.
Clean Solar panels allow maximum light in to the solar cells creating photovoltaic production and increasing power. Overtime, dirt and debris naturally build up on the panels blocking the light while decreasing the amount of electricity your panels can produce. Studies have shown that dirty solar panels have a decreased photovoltaic or PV production level. Recent Study stated, “The accumulation of airborne particles (both in the shape of dust and anthropic pollution) on solar cells can grind their output down by MORE THAN 25%.”
Based on these facts, Smart Solar Cleaning recommends regularly scheduled cleanings at least twice a year to protect both your energy production and the return on your investment.
