If you have invested in a solar panel installation, you should understand the importance of keeping the system clean.

Like anything, if it sits out in the weather over time, dust, dirt, debris, and even bird droppings will accumulate.  This level of gunk on the surface of your solar panels will hinder their electricity generation and negatively affect there efficiently.  A build-up of dirt (and especially bird dropping) can sometimes cause hotspots in the panel, ultimately causing long-term damage.  Like a dirty car,  water alone can’t fully clean it.  Panels must be wiped clean to get rid of the built-up grime.

Is solar panel cleaning worth it?

The costs or a solar clean is usually between $200 to $300, depending on the size of the system.

This might sound steep – but considering the cost of the system, the investment in a professional solar panel cleaning is minimal and has many advantages that outweigh the cost.  Ensuring the safety and efficiency of the panels, a clean ensures you give the system the best possible chance to last well after the 25-year warranties provided by most panel manufacturers.

Here are some advantages of having your solar panels cleaned:

  • Electrical safety
  • Better solar panel efficiency
  • Optimised solar energy production
  • Reduced electricity bills
  • Extended lifespan of the solar system
  • Identification of faults before they lead to damage

How often should I get my solar panels cleaned?

At a minimum, we recommend you have your solar panels cleaned every two years, and while doing so, have your system serviced to detect any potential safety issues.  However, if your panels are prone to higher-than-average levels of grime, an annual cleaning may be the way to go.  Realistically, you can visually see if your panels are dirty.  But some forms of dirt, such as pollution, are not so easy to spot.  The most efficient way to assess the need for cleaning is by using your solar system monitoring to identify any drop in electricity generation.

The frequency of cleaning depends on environmental factors, such as how likely your roof is to gather dust, leaf letter and bird droppings, or whether you are living in a new development with lots of dust being stirred up.   In Gladstone, pollution from factories is a consideration, as well as exposure to sea salt as part of living in a coastal area.  Our local community may need to consider more frequent cleaning.

We recommend August or September to ensure your system is at its peak performance as the best months for solar generation are starting.
