"Professional service. Came in on time and took care of my 36 Solar panels. I was hesitant at first but after seeing the results it's unbelievable. Now I'm getting about 20 to 30 percent more power from my panels. Even though they are 2 years old they made them look amazing. I Will most likely get them to clean my panels every year.. Thank you Sun's Solar Crew. GREAT JOB."

Before and after solar panel wash

Here's the truth about washing your solar panels.

Have you ever pondered whether your solar panels truly require cleaning? Many solar installation companies assert that solar panels do not necessitate cleaning as rain can wash away most of the dirt.

However, while rain may marginally enhance panel efficiency, it’s insufficient to ensure panels operate at their optimal capacity without proper cleaning.

In regions like California, where rainfall is scarce and dust accumulates rapidly, it’s highly advisable to clean every solar panel at least every six months.

Accumulated dirt, grime, and particles can obstruct solar cells, diminishing their exposure to UV rays and reducing energy production for your property.

A case study conducted by Google revealed that their solar panels experienced a fifty percent reduction in energy production after 15 months without cleaning. After cleaning them eight months later, they regained 36 percent of their energy production.

It’s widely acknowledged in the industry that most residential solar systems can lose anywhere from 20 to 40 percent of their efficiency on average if not cleaned regularly.

In essence, regular washing of your solar panels is crucial for proper maintenance and to ensure they operate at their peak capacity.

So, when was the last time you had your panels cleaned?

Our company offers professional and safe solar panel cleaning services, eliminating the need for you to risk climbing onto the roof yourself to maintain your investment and energy efficiency.

Should You Clean your Solar Panels By Yourself?

Have you ever considered cleaning your solar panels yourself but hesitated due to uncertainty? While it may seem straightforward initially, proper cleaning involves various considerations. For homes with panels out of reach, homeowners risk climbing onto their roofs for thorough cleaning, which can be hazardous without specialized safety equipment. We recommend using an extended water-fed cleaning brush whenever possible to clean the solar system from the ground.

While opting for any ordinary brush and a water hose may appear convenient, it poses the risk of scratching panels and leaving mineral deposits from hard water. Moreover, many push brushes leave trails of dirt post-cleaning, diminishing the effectiveness of the process. It’s crucial to use softened water from a deionizer tank to prevent water spots and buildup. We advise against using soap or chemicals to avoid voiding your warranty, as many solar panel companies may nullify warranties for systems cleaned with soap due to the potential for micro damage. Soap residue can also shade panels and attract dirt, making future cleaning more challenging.

The advantage of cleaning solar panels yourself is cost savings, eliminating the need to hire a professional company. However, as evident, this task requires careful attention to detail. If you’re confident in your ability to stay safe on your roof, possess the necessary equipment, and are willing to invest the extra time, a DIY cleaning approach may be suitable for you.
