Why clean your solar panels twice a year?
Orange County is turning to the future of renewable energy. Due to Orange County’s great weather sun is not hard come by. Solar panels are now popping up on everyone’s roof top. Who better to clean them other than your neighborhood cleaning specialist? We do a lot more than just window cleaning here at Superior Windows. We now have the latest in solar panel cleaning technology. It is a called a deionized water machine. This runs your homes water through a resin filled tank that captures any impurities in the water. The water is then disbursed through a brush that is attached to a telescopic pole.
The gentle bristles help clean not harm your new expensive solar panels. Solar panels are constantly exposed to various types of weather and are thus a target for dirt, dust, industrial residues, atmospheric pollution, algae, moss, bird droppings, and other natural and other unnatural elements. The agents responsible for deterioration of the surfaces also include the chemicals used during the cleaning process. These form an excellent attraction for dirt and accelerate the deterioration process, with negative repercussions on the appearance and, above all, the function of the structure. The presence of these elements on the panel’s surface prevents the sun’s rays from filtering onto the panel’s photovoltaic cells completely, reducing the solar performance and therefore efficiency. Accumulated dirt residues reduce efficiency and may damage the material the panels are made from. Cleaning is therefore an indispensable part of the maintenance of these structures and the frequency of the cleaning depends on the geographic area and climate. Industrial areas may require more thorough maintenance than rural areas.
