Pioneers of Solar Panel Cleaning
We have built up an enviable reputation for Solar Cleaning Solutions both our technical knowledge and high-quality cleaning service. We offer comprehensive solar panel cleaning training for those looking to become involved in the solar panel cleaning industry. As well as this, we engage in detailed research, producing articles for the benefit of the global solar industry.
Our ground maintenance department has over 25 years of varied experience That’s why we are Pioneers of Solar Panel Cleaning.
Our bird deterrents and control measures look to reduce the effect bird droppings can have on your solar output and we can prevent birds from nesting under solar panels too.
Our reputation for quality and service has led us to partner with some of the UK’s most prestigious and recognizable companies within the solar industry.
We are proud to be the sole approved solar panel cleaning contractors and have cleaned tens of thousands of ground mounted solar panels for them to date including ongoing cleaning at what was in 2011, the largest solar farm in the .
Why Clean Solar Panels?
Solar panels work by allowing light into the solar cells. The more light that hits a panel, the more power it will generate. Due to the upwards angle of solar panels, they are more prone to bird droppings and a build-up of general dust and dirt that does not wash off with just rain. This reduces the amount of light hitting the panel and reduces its output. As the projected energy figures claimed by solar panel manufacturers and installers are based on the optimum performance of clean solar panels, this build-up of dirt can adversely affect the panel’s ability to meet those projections. So, it is important to clean solar panels in order to protect and maintain your investment. Regular solar panel cleaning will also help you to make the most of the government feed-in tariff.
While solar panel cleaning in the UK is relatively new, in other parts of the world solar panel cleaning has been around for a long time. Early adopters of the technology soon realized that if their solar panels were not cleaned regularly, they would not run at their optimum performance.
- Commercial Solar Panel Cleaning
- Agricultural Solar Panel Cleaning
- Residential Solar Panel Cleaning
Some solar panel manufacturers and installation companies have made solar panel cleaning a condition of their warranty. Should you have problems with your solar panels, if you do not have proof of regular solar panel cleaning by professionals, your solar panels may not be covered by the warranty.
Why Clean Solar Panels – Can It Improve Efficiency?
We have for years now, been monitoring the increases in efficiency that solar panel cleaning can bring. We frequently see sizeable increases of solar efficiency on agricultural sites, of up to 30%. This has been proved by clients who have sent readings to prove solar panel cleaning has increased the output and effectiveness of their array. O&M departments of companies that we have cleaned solar panels for have also reported similar increased in it reliability from Solar panel cleaning. On industrial and commercial sites, we have seen increases of up to 70% and on residential arrays of up to 21%.
Our own findings are confirmed by theWorld Academy of Science, Engineering & Technology, who say “a drop in the efficiency of a solar PV panel is not desired. One of the contributing factors in the drop of efficiency in solar PV panels is the accumulated dust on the solar panel. In practice, dust must be removed from the surface of solar PV panels in order to ensure highest performance.” Solar Energy Power Association notes that dirty solar panels can lose 20% of their energy output. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory puts that figure even higher, at 25%. Recent university research has shown that a dirty solar panel can lose 50% of its efficiency compared to a clean solar panel.
There are a few options available for solar panel cleaning. There is an automated spray system that regularly hoses down the solar panels. There is also a system that uses an electric charge to lift the dirt from the solar panels and there is even a solar panel cleaning robot! However, all of these systems come at an expensive premium, so the best tried, and tested method is regular manual solar panel cleaning, the service that we are happy to provide.
Clean windows make a building more attractive. Our window washing professionals have what it takes to leave your windows sparkling clean. All our workers are properly trained and are highly qualified to provide impeccable services.
Most solar panels are installed on top of buildings. Therefore, people tend to forget about them. The efficiency of solar panels is greatly hampered by dirt which reduces the amount of sunlight that reaches them. This dirt is most commonly in the form of dust and birds’ droppings. If you are looking for a solar panel company to maintain your panels, we are your perfect choice.
