Cleaning Your Solar Panels

Keeping your clean energy clean 
Solar panels like any glass gets dirty over time. The dirtier they get, the lower the amount of electricity they can produce. 
As you can see from the above photo, the panel on the right has a large build up of dust and pigeon droppings. In contrast the panel on the left has just been cleaned by us. 
Once the array was cleaned, the client saw a noticeable rise in the amount of electricity being produced. 
Do you have a build up of Moss or Lichen on your roof tiles? 
Now that solar panels have been installed and sit above the roof, any Moss and Lichen will inevitably start to grown on the panel. Moss tends to build up around the frame work and grown outwards while Lichen will grow directly on top of the glass. 

Solar Panel Cleaning - Pure Water 

Solar panel cleaning is a specialised job.  
As a company we have invested in water fed pole (wfp) technology, the use of 100% pure water and solar brushes. 
Our Solar brushes are purpose made so they do not scratch the solar panel coating. 
100% pure water is just that. Tap water that has been filtered though a process of Reverse Osmosis and Deionisation.  
Once the water has been filtered it becomes 100% pure. This process removes all the particles, calcium and magnesium deposits that are in mains water. 
It is these deposits that causes spotting and leaves marks on your windows when cleaned with normal tap water.

Dirty Solar Panel Cleaning 

Easy Access Cleaning 
The water fed pole now enables us to safely clean the solar array from a scaffold tower without the need to clean from the roof. 
All of our cleaning takes place from a scaffold tower built to the height of the panels we have found this is the only effective way to clean solar panels, we have tried cleaning from the ground, unfortunatly this does not work. The issue with cleaning from the ground, is you are just to far away and to far below the solar arrray to put the requrried amount of pressure onto the brush head to clean the glass. This is why we only clean from the tower at the same height as the panels where we are able to inspect the array and see directly where the build up of dirt is so we can remove it. 
Better Cleaning Results 
Dirt particles are agitated using a purpose made solar panel brush, the dirt is then rinsed away with pure water. 
Solar panel brush heads are not the same as brushes used on windows which can damaged the panels. 
Are your solar panels dirty?

1/2 PRICE Solar Cleaning in January With all proofing works 

" I asked ApcUK to clean my solar panel array whilst they was fitting pigeon proofing, and I was impressed with the standard of cleaning and the pure water system they use. 
My panels had been up for two years and were pretty grimy - they now sparkle ! "
