Cleaning Solar Panels

Solar power is a fantastic way to reduce both our impact on the environment and the impact on our wallets when it comes time to pay the power bill. After your solar install, you may think that all that’s left to do is sit back and relax. You can do so for a while, but an important part of solar panel ownership that many people either forget about or neglect is keeping them clean. It’s essential to keep your solar panels clean to ensure they work optimally.


Dirty panels can reduce the solar panels efficiency by up to 25%, so maintaining clean solar panels will actually be more cost effective in the long run.

Making your solar panels 100% debris/ bird proof is not possible as any type of coverings/ shading will reduce the effectiveness of your solar panels. You can remove a few trees from around your property, but this also won’t solve the issue completely. Your best bet is have them regularly inspected and cleaned.


How often should you have your solar panels cleaned? This of course will depend on various factors, but generally for most homes and businesses, solar panels should be cleaned once every 6 months to maintain optimal function and efficiency. If your property has a lot of trees and birds around, you may need to have them cleaned more often.

Hot water systems are often blamed for consuming a lot of energy. With regular cleans of your solar panels, you won’t have to cut your hot showers down to 2 minutes on order to save on bills.


There are a lot of reasons why you may not be able to or want to clean your own solar panels. Firstly, not many people are comfortable or trained to work at heights. Secondly, they may not have the right cleaning and safety equipment to get the job done. Thirdly, it can be a messy and time-consuming process that many home and business owners simply can’t spare time for. Maintaining clean solar panels doesn’t have to be a hassle.
