Solar Panel Cleaning Services
Did you know that keeping your solar panels clean is key to generating the maximum energy production from your residential or commercial solar system?
SunPro Solar offers solar panel cleaning services provided by trained professionals. We focus on maximizing your energy production while delivering a high level of service for both residential solar and commercial solar customers.
Why should you have your solar panels cleaned?
Particulates in the air such as smog, dust, and pollen can coat the protective glass that encases your solar cells. This can negatively affect solar energy production and lead to an increased reliance on the electric grid. Pollution from freeways, factories, airports, ash from wildfires, and bird droppings are among the common culprits negatively affecting how much electricity your solar panels produce.
Have you noticed a decline in your system’s solar production or does your electric bill seem higher than it should be?
With solar panel cleaning services, you will likely need them once or twice a year to maximize your power generation. Every visit from SunPro Solar starts with a (5) point system inspection to determine your system’s performance. Then, we perform a thorough visual inspection of your roof, with any findings detailed in a report.
Have you tried to clean them yourself or do you allow occasional rain to do it?
Hiring a professional solar panel cleaning service to clean a rooftop or ground-mounted system is always a good idea for safety reasons. We are properly insured and equipped to safely clean and maintain the system. Also, in sunny climates like Southern California, rain is simply too infrequent to do a thorough or reliable job keeping them clean.
What is the impact of dirty solar panels?
Google once ran an experiment at its solar farm in Mountain View, California. They measured the impact of cleaning their solar panels after 15 months of being left alone. They found that panels can lose 15-25% efficiency if not cleaned properly. The experiment concluded that cleaning your solar panels is one of the best ways to maximize solar energy production. Google also found that waiting for the rain to clean your solar panels was not adequate or recommended.
If frequent bird issues are a concern for your home or commercial solar system, SunPro Solar can install bird netting. These nets are an effective deterrent for any creature who may find the space beneath your solar panels a desirable home.
If your home is located in an area that is dust prone, your dirty panels will require cleaning more often so SunPro Solar also offers a regular, managed solar panel cleaning plan so you no longer have to think about it! We will be happy to provide more information when you contact us.
