If you own or maintain solar panels it’s important to keep them at their peak to see as much return on your investment as possible.

Why need cleaning ?

Dust causes regular problems beyond the build-up of grime over the years. But your exact location also plays a big role in how much this can affect your system, and what triggers it.

A bit of dust might not have an effect, because light can still get through. But there are recommendations that you let nature take its course, as rain will accomplish most of the task of solar panels cleaning.

A test done by one company found the amount the efficiency is lowered is minute – maybe 5 per cent or less. And, with a typical 5 kW system, this might equate to about £20 of loss in your energy bill. Another company found that a thorough clean made the panels 3.5 per pence more efficient.

And if this isn’t enough evidence for you, clean technology website – CleanTechnica – reported an analysis by the US National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) that showed a potential 30 per cent energy yield loss per year, if they are not cleaned monthly.

Beyond this, though, it’s important to remember that leaves also block light.
Special attention should be given to PV arrays situated in dustier areas if they are near farmland, somewhere where are more trees, park, forest or next to a main road. These arrays have far more dust and dirt to contend with and will require a more frequent clean.
