Solar Panel Cleaning Services in Elkins Park & Philadelphia, PA
Unfortunately, many people don’t worry about cleaning their solar panels. A solar array is made up of several solar modules wired together. Each solar module is made up of solar cells mounted collectively in a frame. Solar cells are made of semiconductor materials, where one side of a solar cell is positive, the other negative.
When sunlight hits solar cells, it excites the electrons in the semiconductor material and captures energy into electricity. If the cells aren’t clean, then less sunlight is able to be absorbed and less electricity is generated. Just like a car windshield, it will likely get dirty and need to be cleaned the longer it’s outside.
Solar Panel Cleaning Is Important
When your solar panels are dirty, they will not produce as much electricity. The build up of leaves, bird poop and airborne particles from dirt and pollution can all cause your your solar panel investment to get dirty. Any grime and debris can reduce the ability of the solar array to perform at full capacity.
While many factors affect how much electricity solar panels produce, dirty solar panels can be one of the biggest and easiest to fix. The energy loss depends on the level of filth your solar panels have accumulated. Energy loss could reach as high as 25 to 30 percent for consumers who never clean their system.
