A solar panel is a plate made of solar cells which are used to generate electricity. What a solar panel does is that it reduces the dependency on traditional power sources. Traditional solar panels are installed outside, on the rooftops or in open spaces.
The best part of commercial solar panels is that they need less maintenance once they are properly installed. They only require routine cleaning when the outside elements like soil, dust, etc. shroud its protective glass layer, due to which, the sunlight is unable to reach the cells, which, in turn, reduces the energy production capability by up to twenty-five percent.
How to clean solar panels and what products should you use?
When cleaning solar panels, the most important consideration professional companies keep in mind is that scratching or damaging the glass in any way will considerably reduce a panel’s energy production. This is why they approach panel cleaning the same way you might clean your car. They apply dish soap and warm water with a soft sponge or cloth for safe and easy cleaning. They also use a squeegee to remove dirty water in order to avoid damaging or scratching the glass. On rare occasions, oily stains can appear on the solar panels. You might find these if you live near a common truck route or an airport. Professionals can effectively tackle these with a little isopropyl alcohol and a rag.
“Is it worth paying for a professional solar panel cleaning service?” Definitely, yes! When you plan on cleaning your solar panel, be sure to hire the professional who has experience in not only cleaning – but also installing solar panels on rooftops. An experienced installer will take care of plates will assure you of a safe and effective solar panel cleaning.
Should you remove snow from your solar panels?
You might have noticed that at the time of heavy snowfall, sometimes snow does not melt or slide off easily. This can be bad news for your solar panel as a buildup of snow won’t allow sun rays to reach your solar panel. If this is the case, you need a professional cleaner who can efficiently remove snow from the solar plates and allow the solar plates to collect the energy from the sun.
Follow the tips mentioned above and let your commercial solar panel cleaning increase the efficiency of your business. Remember: only choose a company that provides skilled technicians and guarantees meeting your project’s deadline.
