    Why is cleaning your solar panels important?

    Clean solar panels are essential for maintaining the optimal performance and efficiency of your solar energy system. Over time, various environmental factors can lead to the accumulation of dirt, dust, pollen, bird droppings, and other pollutants on the surface of your solar panels. This build up can have several negative effects:

    • Reduced Efficiency: Dirt and debris can block sunlight from reaching the photovoltaic cells on your solar panels, which can lead to a decrease in energy production. Even a thin layer of dirt can cause up to a 25% drop in overall efficiency.
    • Lower Energy Savings: When your solar panels are not generating as much electricity as they should, you may experience lower energy savings on your utility bills than you would if they were clean.
    • Shortened Lifespan: The accumulation of debris can contribute to wear and tear on the panels, potentially shortening their lifespan and requiring more frequent maintenance or replacement.

    How often should solar panels be cleaned?

    As a general guideline, it is recommended to have your solar panels professionally cleaned at least once or twice a year. However, a visual inspection every few months to check for significant buildup or damage is also advisable. If you notice a significant decrease in energy production or the panels appear visibly dirty, it’s a good indication that it’s time for a cleaning service.

    Solar Panel Cleaning FAQs

    Is it worth cleaning my solar panels?

    Absolutely. Regular cleaning enhances energy production, increases savings, extends panel lifespan, and can prevent voiding warranties. The investment in cleaning often pays off through improved performance.

    How do I know if my solar panels need cleaning?

    Keep an eye on your solar panels for reduced energy production and visible dirt buildup. If you notice a significant drop in electricity output or your panels appear visibly dirty with debris, it’s time for cleaning.

    In general, it is recommended that you have your solar panels professionally cleaned at least once a year. Even if you can’t spot visible signs of dirt from the ground, that doesn’t mean your solar panels‘ performance is not being negatively impacted; even a small amount of dust particles can make a difference.

    Do solar panels lose efficiency when dirty?

    Yes, solar panels can lose up to 25% of their efficiency when covered in dirt or grime on average. Even a thin layer can block sunlight and reduce energy production.

    Do you need to turn solar panels off when cleaning?

    For safety, it’s recommended to turn off the system during cleaning. This is to avoid the risk of electrocution.

    Can I clean my solar panels myself?

    Whilst possible, it is safer and more effective to hire professionals with the proper tools and training to clean your panels. For one, solar panels are often difficult and unsafe for most people to access. We have the equipment to reach your panels safely without causing potential damage to your roof or walls.

    Does rain clean solar panels?

    Rain can help remove a light coating of dust, but it is unlikely to fully clean stubborn debris or stains like bird droppings. Professional cleaning ensures a more thorough and effective clean.
