At PRO WASH SOLAR, we are working for a green and clean future powered by renewable energy. By providing regular solar panel cleaning services, PRO WASH SOLAR keeps your solar energy system operating at peak efficiency.
Air pollutants, especially dust and particulate matter, are estimated to reduce solar power generation by as high as 40% in the regions of high concentrations? When solar panels are clean, you can see the grids and solar cells under the shining glass. When the panel looks plain black or mat-brown, you have already lost a significant amount of energy production.
Hosing your panels off regularly should be enough to maintain top energy production. WAIT STOP!!! Unfortunately, it is not. This is actually against recommendations by solar panel manufacturers. Tap water contains minerals and particulates that cause damage to the panels over time and can leave a residue. You may think that you can clean your panels like you would a car or a window with sprays and soaps, but can cause warranty voids and harm your system in the long run. Chemicals harm solar cells! Very few cleaning solutions are approved for use on solar panels. The industry's recommended method is to use purified deionized water to scrub and rinse the panels clean and that is exactly what PRO WASH SOLAR strives to model industry best practice standards.
Research conducted by Duke University in collaboration with The Indian Institute of Technology concluded that without regular cleaning “air pollutants, especially dust and particulate matter, are estimated to reduce the solar power generation by as high as 40% in the regions of their high concentrations''. In California, research shows that on average a solar system will lose 30% of its energy production without proper maintenance. The Central Valley has the highest concentration dust and particulate matter in california.
According to the California Public Utilities Commission, the average annual cost of electricity per home in the central valley is over $2000 dollars a year. That's a loss of over $800 in energy production yearly if panels are not cleaned, not to mention the long term value loss caused due to panel degradation. Without regular maintenance the loss in energy production accumulates. PRO WASH SOLAR’s services are priced with this in mind. With regular service by PRO WASH SOLAR your solar system will generate more than enough energy to, not only justify the cost of the service, but also further off-set the seasonal costs of your utility bills.
