Extended Solar Panel Lifespan

Much like your car, your solar system needs regular maintenance to ensure it is producing at maximum capacity. Regular cleaning and maintenance will ensure your solar panels and system components are working safely and will meet their full potential lifespan.

Save Money On Your Energy Bill

Dirty solar panels mean less energy is generated. Studies have shown that even a small amount of debris on your panels can have a significant impact on their production. If you've noticed a gradual drop in energy production, it might be time to have your solar panels cleaned.

Frequently Asked Questions

The frequency of cleaning commercial solar systems depends on several factors, including the location of the panels, the type of environment they are in, and the amount of dirt and debris that accumulates on the panels.

As a general guideline, it is recommended to clean commercial solar systems at least once or twice a year. However, if the panels are located in an area with high levels of dust or pollution, or if they are prone to bird droppings or other debris, more frequent cleaning may be necessary to maintain their efficiency.

Additionally, if you notice a significant drop in the output of your solar system or if there are visible signs of dirt buildup or lichen, it may be necessary to clean them more frequently or to have them inspected by a professional.

Each case is considered individually based on the client’s needs.

Larger solar arrays require larger cleaning equipment.

We use a rotary-powered brush made specifically for large solar panel systems. This, coupled with the pure water generated from our reverse osmosis system, makes for a predictable and consistent clean that commercial clients can rely on.

Loss of efficiency means loss of revenue. Our job is to provide peak, sustained performance for your solar panel system.

While it is possible for owners to clean their commercial solar panels themselves, it is generally recommended that professionals be hired to do the job. This is because cleaning solar panels can be a delicate process, and improper cleaning methods can cause damage to the panels, which can reduce their efficiency and lifespan.

Professional solar panel cleaning companies have specialised equipment and techniques to safely and effectively clean solar panels without causing any damage. They are also experienced in identifying any potential issues or damage to the panels that may need to be addressed.

Furthermore, cleaning commercial solar panels can be a time-consuming task, especially for large-scale installations. Hiring professionals can save owners time and effort and allow them to focus on other aspects of their business.

Overall, while it is possible for owners to clean their commercial solar panels, it is generally recommended that they hire professionals to ensure the panels are cleaned safely and effectively.

When choosing a company for commercial solar panel cleaning, there are several factors to consider:

  1. Experience: Look for a company that has experience cleaning commercial solar systems. A company that has been in business for a while and has a track record of success can give you peace of mind that they know what they’re doing.
  2. Reputation: Check the company’s reputation by reading online reviews or asking for referrals from other businesses that have used their services. A good reputation is a strong indicator of a reliable and trustworthy company.
  3. Certifications and insurance: Look for a company that has the necessary certifications and insurance to perform solar panel cleaning. This can include certifications from industry organisations or manufacturers as well as liability insurance to protect your business in case of any accidents.
  4. Equipment: Make sure the company uses the proper equipment for cleaning solar panels, such as specialised brush heads and a comprehensive reserve osmosis filtration system. Avoid companies that use harsh chemicals or abrasive tools that could damage your panels.
  5. Price: Compare prices from different companies to ensure you’re getting a fair price for the services you need. Keep in mind that the lowest price may not always be the best option if it means sacrificing quality or experience.
  6. Customer service: Choose a company that provides good customer service, such as responding promptly to your enquiries and being willing to answer any questions you may have.

Yes, cleaning commercial solar panels can have a noticeable impact on the panels’ energy production. When solar panels are covered with dirt, dust, or other debris, it can significantly reduce their efficiency and output.

Studies have shown that dirty solar panels can lose up to 25% of their energy production capacity. This means that even a small amount of dirt buildup can have a significant impact on the performance of your solar panels.

Regular cleaning can help remove dirt and debris from the surface of the panels, which allows more sunlight to reach the solar cells and improve their efficiency. As a result, cleaning commercial solar panels can help ensure that they are operating at their full capacity and producing as much energy as possible.

In addition to improving energy production, regular cleaning can also help extend the lifespan of your solar panels by reducing the risk of damage or wear caused by dirt, lichen, salt spray, sulphur and other soiling buildup.
