Should you or shouldn't
you have your Solar Panels Cleaned...You may have been led to believe that it is
not necessary to clean solar panels...but let's qualify that by where you live!
If you live in a rainy area of the country, probably not, perhaps you can afford
to let nature take its course and clean the panels...but if you live in the
Arizona desert, solar panel cleaning is practically a must and the #1 way that
you can increase the energy they produce.
rainfall is so limited that the few inches that do fall probably only contribute
to dirtier panels. And if we have those
giant sand storms as we have had several in
recent years, you better believe there is a layer of dust that is blocking your
energy efficiency. And you may even experience the inevitable "mud storm" where
just enough rain is mixed in with the dust to really coat the panels. After one
storm we had to have an inch of mud scraped from bottom of the pool.
An accumulation of bird droppings or mineral deposits from rain will also cut
back panel efficiency by 15% to 25%, and these do not have to cover the whole
solar panel to dramatically decrease your "solar payback".
If you lived on Mars you might benefit from "a cleaning event", the wind on
Mars is so forceful it blows the dust completely off the solar panels of probes
thereby increasing their energy output...but since that is rather improbable
here in Arizona, may we suggest you trust A and S Window Cleaning take on the
job of regular Solar Panel Cleaning.
