After installing solar panels on your home or business, you must keep them maintained or they will not produce their maximum energy output.

In order to maintain maximum energy efficiency, solar panels should be cleaned every 1 to 6 months depending on the location and type of solar panels. Not all panels, roof slopes, neighborhoods and mounts are the same so it is important to keep in mind that every system requires something unique. Some solar panels repel dirt differently than others, and if your panels are mounted on a steep angle, rain water and debris will create natural run off, however this can also lead to build up in certain areas which will ruin certain areas of your panels. With that being said, the more level your panels are mounted, the more dirt their will be so cleaning your solar panels is KEY!
Sacramento (Northern California) Solar Panel Cleaning
Sacramento is second in the world to most pollinated tress (next to France) so more dust accumulates here in the Sacramento and Northern California then any other city in Nation. Solar panels that are properly mounted allow for water to run off and not pool in the corners, and unfortunately not all installations feature perfect alignment. Even though the amount of dirt may seem minor, any obstruction has an impact and multiplied by 20+ panels over 25 years can result in a significant loss if no solar cleaning has been done.
Different Solar Panel Mounts require unique cleaning methods
The base of your solar panel frame and mount also needs solar cleaning, being outside for the next 25 years makes this material susceptible to water and rust and mold can occur when dirt and water mix in small crevices. Hopefully your solar panels are mounted with enough space in between the roof and the frame for air to circulate and dirt to run off.
