Tips for cleaning solar panel glass

 

For safety reasons, it’s also wise to clean your panels from the ground if possible. A good quality soft brush and a squeegee with a plastic blade on one side and a cloth covered sponge on the other coupled with a long extension can make for the perfect tools allowing you to stay on the ground.


 

Clean your panels on an overcast day, early in the morning or in the evening. If the sun is beating down on the panels, any water used can quickly evaporate and dirt will become smeared.

 

Early morning can be a particularly good time for cleaning as dew that has settled on the panels overnight will likely have softened grime; meaning you’ll need to use less water and less energy to clean your solar panels.

 

If the panels are dry, before tackling the modules with water, brush off any loose materials first – this will make cleaning easier and faster.

 

 

DONT’S

 

Don’t use metal objects or harsh abrasive products for removing caked on materials – scratching the glass on a solar panel can affect its performance as scratches will cast shadows.

 

Avoid using detergents if possible as these may streak the glass of the panel. Use of abrasive powders also risks scratching the panels.

 

Given the nature of good quality solar panel glass, clean water and a little scrubbing with a coarse cloth covered sponge or soft brush should remove the most stubborn grime. 

 

Cleaning Interval

The cleaning interval is recommended once in  two months at normal weather conditions.  

A long extension  pipe is a perfect tool  allowing you to stay on the ground.

Use a hose with a suitable nozzle to allow the stream of water to reach the panels.
