Dirty solar panels can lose up to 25% of their Energy Generation Efficiency!

Although most people think of solar panels as self-cleaning, the accumulation of dirt, dust, bird droppings, lichen and traffic haze (especially near busy roads or in built-up, industrial and agricultural areas) can drastically reduce energy generation. The result … substantial reductions in Feed in Tariff (FiT) efficiency.

Now experts recommend the regular, professional cleaning of solar panels in order to retain maximum Return on Investment (ROI) benefits.
