Solar Panel Cleaning Spokane

Solar Panel Cleaning in Spokane isn’t any different than cleaning the windshield on your vehicle. You can pay someone or attempt it yourself. A solar panel is usually made up of solar cells covered by protective glass coating. It too like your windshield will get dirty being exposed to the outside elements.  But unlike your windshield solar panels are very expensive to replace if damaged.  When it comes to cleaning them, our method is hands down the safest way.  See our Pure Water Window Cleaning page for more information.

Why is it important to clean them

Solar panels absorb sunlight creating energy. If there’s dirt, leaves, dust, bird droppings or anything on the surface of the solar panel it obstructs the direct path of sunlight, which in turn minimizes the efficiency of what the solar panel is made for (creating electricity). A good cleaning service knows exactly how to safely clean them. There are several factors that effect the amount of electricity each solar panel produces. Dirty solar panels is a factor that is easily fixed. Experts will tell you the same, a dirty solar panel does not produce the same electricity as a clean one will. The lost power could be high as 25% according to National Renewable Energy Laboratory. Other sources have reported losses high as 30%.

How do you know when they’re too dirty

There are a couple ways of checking although I’d encourage routine maintenance. People get busy and you may forget to check. If you’re on a routine quarterly service, then you won’t have to worry about it. The first is obvious, you can physically inspect the solar panels yourself. Or you can use a monitoring service. These services can be found in every city, you just have to look for them. The third option is as mentioned already, hire a company like A Pane in the Glass to wash them. We can set the cleaning up quarterly or every 6 months and you won’t ever have to lift a finger again. Our software is set to put a job on the calendar as often as you request.

How do I research a contractor

There are several ways.  The best in my opinion is use a company like Angies List which specializes in collecting honest reviews from normal customers.  Another way is to do a simple google search for the company, city and the word reviews.  Example –  “A Pane in the Glass Spokane Reviews”  You can also ask the company to provide testimonials with contact info.  All company’s have special clients that don’t mind taking 5 minutes to talk to you.
