Notice a decrease in energy out of your solar system? Chances are your solar panels are dirty. What’s rarely understood, is how even a little bit of dust and other build-up: one-seventh of an ounce, per square-yard, can weaken a panel’s power conversion by forty-percent!!! This means, if you keep your solar panels clean, your system will produce more energy. Which also means, YOU SAVE MONEY on electricity!
Solar panel manufacturers recommend regular cleaning for long-term performance and increased energy generation. Our services are a necessary part of the solar panel system maintenance and most solar panel manufactures require cleaning to maintain your warranty.
Because your solar cells are protected by tempered glass (protective) or plate glass (older style), professional window cleaners are often asked to clean these surfaces. In many cases too, solar panels are either roof mounted, or considerably higher off the ground, making in tough for you to self-clean your system.

There are several home solutions you can put together: ammonia and vinegar, dish soap and warm water, windshield wiper solutions…
What are some cleaning techniques I can use?
Panels can be squeegeed just like windows. Or hand sprayed an whipped down with a non-abrasive cloth.

"Our home has over 100 windows on 3 levels and we could not appreciate the beauty of our Colorado mountains and rivers until after JP restored our windows to their original translucency. He did it all in one day without disturbing our trees and gardens. Great, great job JP." Joe – Aspen Glen
