Ottra provides domestic and commercial solar panel cleaning Newcastle, and across The Hunter & Nelson Bay. Solar panel cleaning is highly cost effective, paying for itself over time. Clean solar panels are more productive, producing more power during all weather conditions. On average, dirty solar panels produce 30% less power than clean solar panels.
About Solar Panel Cleaning Newcastle
Although solar panels generally require very little technical maintenance they do require regular cleaning to ensure the continue to function optimally. A few times a year, the panels should be inspected for any dirt or debris that may collect on them.
Inspecting and cleaning solar panels is best left to the professionals. It is not an easy DIY job. Professional cleaning is the best choice for cleaning panels that are too high to reach as a garden hose just does not clean thoroughly enough. For the same reason, rain won’t clean your solar panels just as rain won’t clean your car.
If you choose to DIY always make sure you are safety conscious when inspecting panels and don’t take any needless risks! If your panels are too high up on the roof to see very well from the ground, use caution with ladders.
Our Solar Panel Cleaning Methods
For a general cleaning, we work early or late in the day. This is because the risk of solar panels cracking increases in the heat of the day and direct sunlight. The best times of the year to clean your solar panels is at the start of spring (to maximise efficiency during the long daylight hours of summer) and prior to the start of winter (for stronger output even when the sun is not as powerful and days are shorter).
We use our unique water fed pole system on the panels, using deionized water and a soft brush.
