TAKING CARE OF YOUR SOLAR PANELS
Your solar panels are a great and long-time investment that will give you many years of great service if you take good care of them. Fortunately, solar panel maintenance is really simple work and with a little effort you’ll keep your investment in tip top shape for many years to come.
Keep it clean
The amount of energy that your panel is going to harvest will be influenced to a substantial degree by how clean the surface of the solar panel is. As you can guess, the amount of sunshine reaching your panel will be reduced when the panel is covered in dust and debris.
Keeping your panel clean is really easy. If the panel is wet, all you need to do is wipe the dirt on it off.
For regular maintenance, the provider of your solar panel will also provide you with a kit that should contain a wiper, a small brush and some biodegradable soap. When you notice the accumulation of dirt on the surface of the panel, you need to pick a bucket and mix the soap with water and then use the brush to wipe the dirt off the panel. You must always remember to use the brush provided and never get tempted to use abrasive cleaning brushes as these are likely to scratch the panel’s glass.
