Why do I need my solar panels cleaned?Increase production and save money. Solar panels are designed to absorb sunlight and convert it into electricity. However, if the panels are covered with dirt, dust, debris or bird droppings, the amount of sunlight they absorb can be reduced. This can decrease the efficiency of your solar panels, resulting in lower energy production and higher energy costs. Regular maintenance and cleaning of your solar panels can help to ensure they are performing at their optimal level, and ultimately save you money on your energy bills.
How often should my panels be cleaned?About once every 3-6 months. The frequency of cleaning your solar panels depends on several factors, such as the location of your panels, the climate in your area, and the amount of dust and debris that accumulates on them. As a general guideline, it is recommended to clean your solar panels at least once a year. However, if your panels are installed in a dusty area or surrounded by trees, you may need to clean them more often. Regular cleaning can help maximize the efficiency and lifespan of your solar panels and ensure that you get the most out of your investment.
