Solar panels are very expensive, and commercial and home solar panels are installed for many reasons. First of course is to reduce the cost of electricity to a home or business while “locking in” power rates for the next 25 years. In addition to these important financial considerations, many people are also trying to do the right thing for the planet by helping to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels that generate greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming.
solar panel systems are warranted for 25 years, or approximately 9,125 days. If you don’t think solar panel cleaning is important, consider that each day during this life cycle some amount of power is lost due to dirt, debris, bird droppings, or plant materials. Not only does this represent a financial loss for the owner, it represents a huge loss to the National Power Grid and shines a spotlight on the importance of maintaining clean solar panels.
No one can accurately tell you how much power you will lose due to dirty solar panels. Estimates range from 5% to 30% depending on geographical location, weather, panel mounting angles, smog, bird droppings, and airborne particles. Given the efforts of federal, state, and local go vernments to create alternative sources of energycoupled with losses averaging 10% to 20% for every solar panel system in the country, we are seeing a huge waste of clean energy resources.
