Advantages & Benefits of Solar Cleaning

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. A 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%.”

Does Rain Clean Your Solar Panels?

No! Rain does not clean your solar panels effectively or efficiently. Did you know that raindrops collect pollutants on their way down to Earth? It is true. Rainfall plays a valuable role in scavenging natural as well as artificial particles from the dirty atmosphere. This includes but is not limited to salt, chemicals, soot, acids, etc. Just imagine all the stuff in the air during fire season collected and dumped on your solar panels.

Also, the rain is not strong or consistent enough to effectively clean your solar panels. If you have ever seen a black car after a rain storm you know the debris and marks left do not indicate a clean surface. The same goes for your solar panels. Except when a panel gets dirty it not only looks bad but it is also less efficient.
