why clean solar panels?

Solar panels are constantly exposed to various types of weather and are therefore prone to salt, dirt, dust, industrial residues, atmospheric pollution, algae, moss, bird droppings, etc. These elements on the panel’s surface prevents the sun’s rays from filtering onto the panel’s cells completely,  reducing efficiency greatly and over long periods will deteriorate  the material the panels are made from.

Without clean panels it is reducing the solar performance and therefore efficiency by up to 25-30% on average. If you translate that to how much it’s costing you in lost energy and thus higher energy costs it’s quite alarming!

Cleaning is, therefore, an imperative part of the maintenance and given our beautiful climate here on the Sunshine Coast’s it can require more regular attention due to exposure to salt spray, dust and coastal breezes

As solar panels are generally located on rooftops, safety is therefore paramount. We are fully trained, insured and working at heights licensed to do the task and our specialised equipment ensures the job is done right the first time without huge costs, damage to the photovoltaic panels and of course your own safety by not climbing on roofs

Taking care of solar panels now as opposed to saving that intial outlay, is going to save you alot of money and heartache down the track as the quality and efficiency will remain. So it really is a long term investment for a small upfront cost
