The Impact of Dirty Solar Panels

Some sources suggest that normal pollutants like dust, leaves, and bird droppings have a minimal impact on solar energy production. Other studies show that dirty solar panels can negatively affect efficiencies by up to 35%. Factors like pollution, traffic dust, leaves, and bird droppings can prevent sunlight from reaching the solar cells in your panels. The dirtier your panels, the less electricity they will generate.

Grime and debris build-up can affect how much sunlight gets through to the solar cells, resulting in decreased efficiency. While rainfall may keep solar panels reasonably clean, it may not remove all types of dirt and grime. Dust and dirt are common enemies of solar power systems, and their effects go beyond the accumulation of grime. Even though sun rays may still pass through a layer of dust and dirt, the overall efficiency of the panels can be significantly affected.

Our Advanced Cleaning System

At Newcastle District Cleaning, we leverage the power of pure water pumped from a large tank in our vehicles through a specialized hose. This water is directed to a brush head attached to an extendable pole that can reach heights of up to 65 feet. This advanced cleaning system allows us to clean solar panels efficiently and safely from the ground, eliminating the need for ladders or other access equipment. Our method significantly reduces the risk of personal injury or even fatal incidents due to falls.

The brush cleans your panels, effectively removing dust, debris, and bird droppings. This meticulous cleaning process can result in up to a 35% increase in your solar panels’ efficiency.

Solutions for Higher Panels

For solar panels located higher than 65 feet, we have a range of solutions at our disposal, including the use of cherry pickers and booms operated by IPAF license holders. All our operators are highly trained in using mobile access equipment, ensuring the safety and effectiveness of our services.

We may also opt to use mini-towers to access your panels, with all towers erected by qualified professionals. We prioritize health and safety in every job we undertake, providing our cleaning operatives with fall arrest jackets and other essential safety equipment.

Frequently Asked Questions

How often do my panels need cleaning?

We recommend having your solar panels cleaned every 6-8 months to maintain optimal efficiency.

Will rainwater naturally clean my panels?

Rainwater contains airborne dust particles that can settle and stick to the panels, similar to how dust accumulates on uncleaned windows.

What improvement in output can I expect?

With our professional cleaning services, you can anticipate up to 30% improved efficiency in your solar panels.

Can I use a high-pressure wash system to clean solar modules?

High-pressure wash systems can damage your solar modules and are generally ineffective in removing all dirt and dust. Therefore, we advise against using them.

Are there any other benefits to cleaning my solar modules?

Yes. A cleaning session not only maximizes the performance of your solar panels but also includes a visual inspection of your solar system. Regular cleaning allows you to spot minor issues or technical failures before they cause permanent damage to the solar modules.
