Why is solar panel cleaning important? For several reasons:

Energy efficiency

When you call us for your residential solar cleaning or industrial solar cleaning projects in San Jose, you can be sure that your solar panels are about to turn out a lot more energy. Why does solar cleaning make your solar panels more energy efficient? It’s a simple explanation of how solar panels work.

Solar panels create electricity when light hits the photovoltaic cells. Any time they are in the shade, they are making less electricity, or possibly no electricity at all. Dirt particles cast tiny amounts of shade on your solar panels. One or two particles won’t even make a difference, but a full coating of dust quickly decreases the energy efficiency. As soon as the dirt is washed off, you will notice your solar panels producing a lot more electricity!


Did you know that regular solar panel cleaning also makes your solar panels last longer? Whether you have commercial solar panels or just a couple of solar panels on your roof, they are susceptible to scratches. When you let dirt sit on your solar panels it can score and scratch them, but if you clean them frequently the surface will stay shiny and pristine for a very long time. You can count on a professional service like Shine Up Solar to check your solar panels for damage at the same time too!


At Shine Up Solar, we have the equipment to be able to climb around on your roof safely to clean your solar panels. There’s no reason for you to risk your neck! Your solar panels themselves are safer with us too, because we guarantee that we won’t damage them. That means if we do damage them, we’ll repair or replace them ourselves. You won’t get that sort of deal if you wash your solar panels yourself! Give us a call today for a FREE estimate and find out why we are San Jose’s #1 professional solar panel cleaning company!
