Contaminants on Solar Panels
The winter season assaults Chattanooga-area buildings in a variety of ways. High winds scatter debris across rooftops. Dirt and salt ride along with wind-driven snow. Some solar installations, like those near freeways, airports and industrial areas, are vulnerable to oily residues that reduce the efficiency of solar panels. Agricultural dust from freshly plowed fields may also accumulate on solar panels. Industrial ash is another type of particulate matter that can coat solar panels.
Solar Panel Efficiency
Residential rooftop solar and large commercial solar projects all need periodic, professional cleanings. You’ll enjoy important benefits when you invest in professional cleaning. First, you’ll maximize the power output of your solar panels. Photovoltaic cells convert sunlight into electricity. Any amount of surface grime, leaves, pine needles or other debris reduces the efficiency of your solar installation. A study conducted at Google’s headquarters in Mountain View, CA, provided persuasive evidence.
Cleaning of solar panels atop carports increased output 36 percent. Second, certain solar panel manufacturers require periodic cleanings to keep warranties in force.
Proper cleaning is particularly important given the long service life of photovoltaic cells. The life expectancy of many solar panels is 20 to 30 years or more. Grit caught in a cloth used to wipe down a solar panel could lead to scratches. Those scratches may reduce efficiency. Even a small reduction in output is a problem when it multiplies over many years. This is why SoftWash is an ideal alternative.
