Investing in solar power is a big step in saving money and our environment. To keep your system working at its peak, it is so important to keep your solar panels clean.
The area around your home and the amount of road dust encountered determines how often the panels should be cleaned. Once a month is suggested but that can be determined upon inspection, but we have found that most of our customers choose between a quarterly, yearly or twice a year service schedule.
A key part of maintaining the solar powered battery charging system is keeping the panel clean. The amount of power that a panel will produce is directly related to the intensity of sunlight that reaches your internal crystals. A dirty panel will allow less light to reach the crystals resulting in lower power output. A layer of dust or road grime will reduce power output by 15 to 25%. Combining dust with leaves and debris that cover two or three of the individual cells can cut output power by 50 to 75%. Use of the basic maintenance tips, regular inspections and regular solar panel cleaning will assure optimum performance from the solar charging system.
