Just the slightest of spots on a solar panel can cause an inefficiency in the output of power.
Dirty solar panels can lose up to 50% of efficiency, when compared to clean solar panels. These are the results of recent university research.
Do you drive around with a dirty windscreen on your car?
It is so much clearer looking through a clean windscreen. Using the wiper blades keeps the middle of the windscreen clear but when you look at the edge of the windscreen a dirty film collects and is not wiped by the blades. The visibility of light is obscured in the outer parts of your windscreen. This is the case on a solar panel, if light is obscured then this loss of light will decrease the efficiency of the panel.
Dust and grime collects and settles on the panel. Rain water carries particles that are left on the panel after the rain has evaporated. Moss and lichen grow in spots and reduce the efficiency.
If you have gone to the trouble and expense of installing a solar panel system, then you want to get the most out of them.
Gutter-Vac Tasmania cleans solar panels and we have a scheduling program to send out a reminder every year. We also reduce the price per panel when combining the solar clean with a gutter clean.
