Installing solar panels on your roof is one of the best possible long term investments that one can do, Despite though being a good and sometimes expensive investment, many people tend to forget that they need maintenance to operate properly and at their highest possible energy output. A vital part of solar panel maintenance is keeping them adequately clean, as this will benefit your solar installation and will save you money in the long run.
As solar panels are almost constantly exposed to the elements, it is easy for them to slowly accumulate unwanted dust and other debris that can potentially lower their energy production efficiency. This is especially the case if you live in an area that is frequently windy, as this can quickly accelerate the build-up of mud, grime and leaves from nearby trees. Most people usually think that these are easily washed off by the rain, but sometimes it might even make things worse. Most rainfalls are usually weak, something that deteriorates the situation by turning dust to mud, which is even harder to remove and has an even great role in the reduction of energy production. Heavy rainfall might help your solar panels by washing off some debris, but as a general rule, this isn’t always the case. There is always the risk that it will carry even more debris on the panels situated lower on your installation, having a little overall positive effect. Thus, the next time that you notice the power efficiency of your solar panels going down, it might not be because of their natural decay, but rather a lack of proper maintenance.
This question is much trickier to answer, as this depends on numerous factors, You need to consider how often it rains on your area and how windy it is, as areas with low annual rainfall and strong winds need more frequent cleaning. Also, it is a general rule that solar panels which have a steep angle of installation accumulate less dust over time, compared to those that are more horizontal. No matter what, it should be done at least annually, if not twice or three times a year which is recommended by many manufacturers, as this will guarantee that they will work properly and at their maximum possible energy efficiency.
