Yes. Studies have proven that overall photovoltaic system production yield losses between 10 and 30%, depending on the severity of dirtiness. It is recommended to utilize and maintain a quarterly or bi-annual cleaning plan to ensure your solar invest yields maximum production all year round.
Low roof pitch preventing proper drainage of soil off the panel glass, bird droppings, pollen, vehicle emissions, leaves, tree needles (resin), moss, algae, lichens, lime deposits just to name a few.
Most definitely. Production loss can vary but can yield up to 30%. This only means your solar investment is generating 30% electricity, and therefore overall annual savings can be significantly reduced without some maintenance plan.
It can be done, but typically isn’t recommended for safety and warranty reasons. Our experience, understanding of manufacturers recommended maintenance requirements and use of industry leading cleaning tools exclusively made for solar panel cleaning ensure that no damage will occur to the panel’s glass surface. In addition, we use demineralized water, and never any chemical detergents, which leave a residue-free result.
There are many opinions on the magic number, but depending on the location of the system, exposure to common soiling agents, and desired optimum production to gain the most out of your solar investment, a minimum of once a year will suffice, however, cleaning twice or more a year may increase yields even more.
