Solar Photovoltaic panels have been around for many years. In fact the first observed Photovoltaic effect took place way back in 1839. However, the modern day solar panel as we know it today has developed over the last 50 years with the last 5 years really accelerating due to the advancement in technology efficient panels and lower production costs.
ADVANTAGES OF SOLAR PANEL CLEANING
Solar PV (photovoltaic) panels work by emitting light into the solar panels cells. Naturally the more light that hits a panel, the more power it will generate. Due to the angle required for solar panels to work effectively, they are prone to natural external elements such as bird droppings, general dust and dirt and in the unavoidable pollution in the air. This dirt dust and pollution reduces the amount of light hitting the panel and reduces its efficiency and output.
PROJECTED ENERGY FIGURES
Claimed by solar panel manufacturers and installers are based on the optimum performance of clean solar panels, the build-up of dirt can adversely affect the panel’s ability to meet those projections. Therefore, it is important to clean solar panels in order to ensure maximum efficiency, it will also protect and maintain your investment.
