Here at 3 Guys Solar, LLC, we provide solar panel installation, repair, and maintenance services for both residential and commercial applications. When it comes to maintaining your panels, one thing you’ll need to do is to have them regularly cleaned. In this article, we will go over a few reasons why solar panel cleaning is so important.
- Maximize Light Exposure- One reason why it’s important to make solar panel cleaning a part of your routine is because clean panels collect the maximum amount of light, and any debris on their surfaces will decrease their power output. Essentially, bird droppings and fallen leaves don’t just make your panels look bad– they also impact how well they are working.
- Improve Overall Efficiency- Another, related reason to make use of our solar panel cleaning services is because they will keep your panels operating at peak energy efficiency. Clean panels are up to 30% more efficient than dirty ones, so if you want to maximize your energy savings you should always keep your panels as clean as possible.
- Keep Your Warranty- A third reason to use our solar panel cleaning services is because many panel manufacturers offer warranties on their products, but most of those warranties have conditions about cleaning and maintenance. If you experience a problem with your panels, but can’t provide evidence of regular maintenance and cleaning, then you may very well have to pay for the repairs out of pocket. Fortunately, our team is here to keep your panels in peak condition.
