What You Can Gain by Cleaning Your Solar Panels

What You Can Gain by Cleaning Your Solar Panels


If you’re like me, you probably didn’t realize that you have to clean your solar panels now and then. Here’s why it’s important to do so, though.

Today I’m sharing the importance of cleaning and maintaining your solar panels. I thought that when I got my solar panels, all I had to do was install them, and then go about my daily life without worry!

“The cleaning process doesn’t have to be too complex, and the result is worth it!"

However, I recently found that if you clean your solar panels regularly, you can get up to 12% to 15% more output from them. Obviously, rain does help wash them off, but if there are a lot of bird droppings, mushy leaves, dust, grime, or even ash, your panels will require a deeper clean than what Mother Nature can provide.

The cleaning process doesn’t have to be too complex. A garden hose and a soft brush usually suffice, but if your panels are at a difficult-to-reach angle, you can play it safe and call a professional solar panel cleaning company to do the job for you.

Sure, it’s one more thing added to your to-do list, but that considerable increase in energy efficiency is well worth the effort. If you have questions about this or any other real estate topic, feel free to contact me by phone or email. I’m always happy to hear from you.
