Experts agree that dirty solar panels don't produce as much power as clean panels.
That loss may range as high as 25% in some areas according to the National Renewable Energy
laboratory. However, commercial enterprises and home owners have reported losses as high as
30% when they failed to periodically clean their panels.
Salt, pollution, traffic and construction dust, leaves and even bird droppings contribute to
preventing sunlight from reaching the solar cells in your solar panels.
Our Exclusive, Seven Step Solar Panel Cleaning Process
1. Before photos are taken of the system prior to the service.
2. Photovoltaic module inspection to include the glass, frame, penetrations and wires).
3. Rinse PV modules with reverse osmosis / de-ionized water.
4. Agitate PV panels utilizing brush with soft bristles to remove salt, dust and other debris.
5. Final rinse of modules with reverse osmosis / de-ionized water.
6. After photos of the module array are taken upon completion of the service.
7. An Inspection report to include photos will be provided to clients shortly after service date.
Most Oahu communities face issues related to
salt buildup on their systems, particularly those
located within two miles of the ocean. Salt will
gradually build up on the metallic components
as well as the panels themselves.
If you live in an area with red dirt, near a
freeway or highway, or with on-going
construction, more frequent cleaning may be
necessary to maintain your PV system.
We regularly work with our commercial and residential
solar clients to provide eco-friendly solutions to allow
them to maximize the rewards of their PV systems.
In order to reap the full benefits of your solar
investment, you need to have your PV system
undergo periodic inspection and cleaning.
Similar to car maintenance, solar panel
maintenance is a vital necessity to ensure the
longevity and performance of your solar panels
and the complete PV system.
Solar panels are a long term investment. Most panels are guaranteed to perform for twenty-five years, however without proper
maintenance you will not be generating all the power you can. Many panel manufacturers recommend an annual inspection and
cleaning. If you want your PV system to continue saving you money, you need to have it serviced in order to ensure it is operating
at its rated capacity.
