I was surprised when you talked about how regularly-cleaned solar panels can produce 12% more energy per year. When I was talking with my husband last week, we both agreed that we want to get solar panels this month in an effort to support sustainable energy. Thanks for sharing this article and helping me see the importance of having the solar panels cleaned and maintained on a regular basis!

I like how you talked about solar panels becoming dirty just like windows do because they are outside in the weather and atmospheric conditions. My brother-in-law has solar panels and has noticed they don’t seem to be producing as much energy as usual and was thinking he might need to clean them. Thank you for the information about how if dirt is allowed to remain and build upon the panels, it will block the sunlight from the solar panels and reduce the electricity they produce.

I am considering getting solar panels for my house as I live in the sunny area, and this can be beneficial. If cleaning them will require only hosing them off from the ground, I think I will be able to do that. But I am not going to climb in order to perform a more thorough cleaning! I guess then I will try to find a cleaning service who could do this for me so that the panels will be in proper condition.
