The good news is that with no moving parts, solar panels require little maintenance. Simply inspecting your panels a few times a year to check for dirt or debris that may collect on them is quick and easy. A simple wash off with a hose and soft broom may suffice in smaller systems. For large commercial systems, this may prove more of a task, requiring an ongoing maintenance schedule.
It is estimated that solar panel efficiency can be reduced up to 25% due to dirt & dust, debris from trees, bird droppings, particulate pollution etc. Regular cleaning and maintenance of your solar system will improve system longevity, maintain component warranties and ensure maximum electrical output of components.
