Why Even Bother?
Solar panels can lose anywhere from 10%-20% of their power generating capabilities after the first year. a stubborn UV blocking film of dirt develops over the glass panels. Start adding pollen, bird droppings, road traffic, or salt if near the ocean, you can start to seriously diminish you return of your investment in the solar panels on your home or building.
The safest and most thorough way to clean a solar panel is to use de-ionized water. Running water through a series of filters to remove all of its impurities defines DI water. This type of water will dry 99.9% spot free since all of its impurities have been removed. There are DI systems that can run through a waterfed pole with a soft brush on the end. The DI water runs through the pole. A gentle stream of pure water pours from brush head on to the panel. With a gentle motion of the brush and a DI water rinse the panel will become perfectly clean.
The Right Technique For Every Job
Some panels may need a slightly more aggressive cleaning. Check out our video to see a large solar panel farm that has been invaded by bird droppings. Using such a pure form of water such as DI lowers the efficiency of cost. The filters for DI water can be expensive which can account for a major portion of the cleaning bill. Different processes to produce deionized water include reverse osmosis, microfiltration, carbon filtration, ultrafiltration, electrodialysis, and ultraviolet oxidation. The bottom line is that if the photovoltaic cells, or solar cells, are getting diminished sunlight exposure they will not produce the energy intended.
To have a cost effective solar panel maintenance program it may be sufficient to clean the panels with a non-caustic cleaner to loosen some solid debris. A gentle low-pressure rinse is a safe and effective way to release most of the major stains on a panel. Adding water softeners and rinsing agents to detergents to provide a generally spot free rinse. DI water gives a most thorough spot free finish providing an alternative method of low-pressure washing. The efficiency helps leave money in the budget for next years cleaning.
