Solar Panel Cleaning – How to and How often

Although solar panel cleaning is easy and straightforward, without the appropriate safety equipment it can turn dangerous very quickly so hiring a professional may be in your best interest.

Normally the average bit of dust is washed away naturally by the rain. However if you are in a heavily polluted area or there are other obscuring objects on the panels such as leaves, ash or bird droppings, a thorough hose down may be required. Soapy water is fine to use along with a sponge or soft brush to avoid damaging the panels surface.
