Maximising Efficiency: How Cleaning Your Solar Panels Can Save You Money

The use of solar energy in New Zealand has become increasingly popular in recent years, as more and more homeowners are looking for ways to reduce their carbon footprint and save money on their power bills. A key factor in achieving these goals is maintaining the efficiency of your solar panels, and one of the most important ways to do this is through regular cleaning.

Dirt, dust, and other debris can accumulate on your solar panels over time, blocking the sunlight from reaching the cells and reducing their overall efficiency. Studies have shown that a buildup of just 0.3 cm of dirt can reduce the efficiency of your solar panels by as much as 25%. This means that regular cleaning is essential to ensure that your solar panels are working at their best!

While cleaning your solar panels may not be the most exciting task on your to-do list, it is essential to maintaining the efficiency of your system. If you choose to clean your panels yourself, make sure to check your manufacturers guidelines for cleaning to ensure you will not void your warranty.

We use professional equipment and a pure water system that leaves your panels free from mineral stains, we also perform a maintenance check looking over your wiring and seals to make sure everything is in good working order.
