New Zealand’s leading Utility Solar panel cleaning company specialised in robotic cleaning of solar panels.
We can service large commercial and utility scale solar installations across New Zealand, offering specialised services to the following.
With specific solutions designed to meet the unique challenges of the New Zealand climate, terrain and system design.
We aim to be a trusted partner in the New Zealand Solar O&M industry by eliminating longterm financial losses due to soiling while also increasing asset life and ROI.
Quality: thoroughness and consistency. The depth of our robotic cleaning sets us apart, which translates to more production…
Efficiency and speed. Faster than other cleaning options – one robot can clean 1MW – 2MW per day
Safety. Employees are kept off of heights and from internal panel edges, as the robot is fully remote controlled
Professional, hi-tech service. All our operators have been fully trained and have had to go through a rigorous solar module…
ROI. Eco Shine Solar’s robotic solar panel cleaning is all about increasing your solar installation’s ROI – thorough and consistent cleaning…
Versatility. All types of solar installations serviced: on ground, rooftop or floating, with an inclination…
Nationwide. Nationwide robotic cleaning for commercial and utility scale solar plants.
When your panels are dirty, your power generation is reduced. When dirt builds up, your panels quickly become shaded by a layer baked on by sunlight. Even heavy rain won’t take this off. The shading reduces energy generation by 20-30%, thus reducing the ROI of your solar installation.
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory recommends cleaning solar arrays at least once per year. However, you may benefit from cleaning your solar panel more often depending on weather, humidity, vegetation, proximity to urban areas or to the seaside, angle of your panels, etc.
An annual clean-up has been found to improve energy output by as much as 12% when compared to panels that were only cleaned by rainfall.
The consistency and efficiency of our robotic cleaning maximises solar power generation and increases the lifespan of your panels. What sets us apart is our professional services with a focus on safety.
Our robot can clean virtually all types of solar commercial and utility scale installations (on ground, rooftop, carports, or floating) with a pitch of up to 25º (up to 45º with a safety glider).
No. Solar panels are generally designed to accept a load of up to 0.78 psi (5400 Pa.). As the robot exerts a maximum 0.60 psi (4200 Pa.), that is well within safety limits. Separately, the robot’s rubber pads mounted on the traction tracks allow movement without vibration and without scratches on the panels.
A standard water hose connection is enough. Eco Shine Solar will bring a water pump and hoses to perform the job. Water trucking can be provided by Eco Shine Solar as well, if needed.
No need for electricity or any other utility, as the robot is battery powered.
It depends on your installation, but generally we clean over 1MW per day.
Our robotic cleaning sets us apart offering a consistent clean from the first panel to the last.
Faster than other cleaning options – one robot can clean 1MW – 2MW per day.
Employees are kept off of heights and from internal panel edges, as the robot is fully remote controlled.
We are a Family owned business and pride ourselves on great customer service and solutions to suit your needs.
Eco Shine Solar’s robotic solar panel cleaning is all about increasing your solar installation’s ROI – thorough and consistent cleaning will lead to more energy production and savings, while doing it faster, more efficiently, and safer.
