Why it is Important to Clean Your Solar Panels in Florida

 In blog

A solar panel typically consists of solar cells covered by a protective glass coating. Just like your car windshield, the longer it is outside, the more likely it will get dirty and need to be cleaned. Dust, pollution, leaves, and bird droppings can prevent sunlight from reaching the solar cells. Our team at Elite Power Washing is happy to do the cleaning for you as we know how to properly clean solar panels. It is always important to remember to have a professional company clean your solar panels as it is not safe for you to attempt it on your own.

Why Clean Your Solar Panels?

For starters, your warranty could be void. Some solar panel manufacturers have made solar panel cleaning part of their conditions. Should a problem arise with your solar panel and you need a repair service and you cannot provide proof of regular maintenance from a reputable company, the repairs may not be covered. This would cause a costly state to your finances. Regular cleaning is imperative to keep your warranty intact. You have invested time and money in having solar panels put in. Protect your investment with regular cleaning to remove all of the daily debris such as dirt, dust, pollen, and bird droppings, at least once a year. This will maximize your efforts.

Can Clean Solar Panels Improve Efficiency?

Experts agree that dirty solar panels don’t produce as much power or energy as clean panels. The loss can range as high as 25-30 percent as compared to clean solar panels. The more dirt and debris on your panels, the lower amount of electricity they will produce. While there are many factors that affect how much electricity your panels use, having your panels cleaned can be the easiest fix.

Why Not Just Let the Rain Clean the Panels?

Have you ever noticed how the rain won’t just clean your car windshield? That is an excellent way to measure how well the rainwater can clean your solar panels. The rain still contains dust particles and debris, and if the water is left on your solar panels, it will reduce the effectiveness of the sun reaching your panels. Due to the upwards angle of the solar panels, they are more prone to the build-up from the debris and general dust particles and will not wash off with rainwater alone. It is very important to maximize the light getting to your solar panel to protect your financial investment in your solar panels and keep your solar production at an optimal level.
