A dirty solar panel can cause up to 40% power loss. Manufacturers have clear instructions for scheduled cleaning and maintenance to ensure that your solar power system operates at its optimal levels. There is a general misconception that rain is enough to clean the panels. However, rain will only make your dirty panels muddy, causing build-up of more debris.
The solar panels installed on your roof will have to withstand the elements throughout their lifetime. This includes bearing different weathers, moisture, snow, and sun. And then dirt, fog, mist, hail, and organic debris will add up to the challenges. All this means that solar panels need to be cleaned periodically.
When all these factors work together over time, your panels will decline in their performance levels as there can be a build-up of residue on them blocking proper light absorption.
Solar panels should be kept clean and free from any form of debris to ensure that they are producing energy at their peak levels. At SUNPASS Solar, we are a CEC approved solar panel and inverter supplier, installer, repair, and maintenance service provider in Sydney.

Solar panel cleaning helps you save money, but you should know how often they should be cleaned. The frequency will primarily depend on where you live. If you live in an area with a dust problem or near the sea, the panels should be cleaned at least once every 6 months. Our technicians will conduct a visual inspection of your system whenever we clean it.
