Maintenance and Care of Solar Panels

However, it's important to remember that solar panels require regular maintenance and care in order to function properly and produce energy. In this blog post, we'll provide you with 5 tips on cleaning your solar panels.

#2 Hose Your Panels Down


One of the most cost-effective ways to improve your solar energy performance is by using a hose. This will not only get rid of any light dirt or dust from between panels, but also prevent it from getting worse with time as well!



#3 Read The Solar Panel Manufacturer Guide

The instructions that come with your solar panels can be really helpful for determining when and how you should clean them. Shut down the system if it's not already turned off, then follow these specific guidelines to make sure everything stays healthy.


#4 Clean Solar Panels in the Morning or on an Overcast Day


Solar panels become very hot in direct sunlight. To avoid watermarking or soap smudging when cleaning your solar system, be sure to do so at night on an overcast day.


#5 Be Gentle


Remember that solar panels are made of a durable material, but if you use metal objects or pressure washers to clean them they may be damaged. We recommend using dish soap and an old Sponge/ squeegee instead!
