Top 5 Solar Cleaning Reasons
Improve Panel Performance
This is somewhat obvious, but it is important to keep in mind that rainfall is not consistent and prevalent enough in Los Angeles to clean the panels. In fact a thorough panel cleaning has been shown to increase panel efficiency up to 21%.
It is important to remember that when you were having your panels installed you were most likely provided with documentation from the manufacturer regarding a specified regular cleaning schedule. Having professional cleaning service receipts on hand could protect you in the future if a situation were ever to arise.
Increase Panel Life
As dirt and particles gather on the panels and sits for a lengthy period of time it can begin to wear through the protective coating layers. This effect is similar that dirt on a car eventually leading to permanently damaged paint.
Whether it is your neighbors or tourists viewing your house they are going to notice the solar panels, and having them covered in dirt will be what stands out. You don’t want to be that person.
This is one of the most important reasons due to the expense of purchase and installation of the panels. You want the highest return on investment, you need to have the panels running as efficient as possible to make sure that happens.
