Solar energy is considered one of the lowest maintenance energy sources. Solar panels are durable, long-lasting, and (usually) have no moving parts that could start malfunctioning or wear over time. Another advantage when it comes to maintenance is that most issues in an individual solar panel won’t affect the rest of the system; you will still be provided energy, but a bit less than normal. Even though solar panel maintenance is minimal, there are still certain things you should take into consideration and despite a warranty from your solar panel provider, there are issues that aren’t covered. This upkeep and possible repairs usually require assistance from a professional, which can be seen as an investment since it will make sure that your energy production is up to par.
The following guide provides an overview of solar panels cleaning features: why should solar panels be cleaned? Which substances cause the most harm to the panels? Which are the main safety risks of dirty PV modules? How is the cost-effectiveness of a system cleaning determined and what should be considered when choosing the right partner for your PV system?
