The growing focus on green initiatives in the commercial property market has sparked an interest in solar panels as a renewable energy source. Developers and property owners are looking to this sector as a possibility to reduce costs and offer renewable energy sources.
Managers and owners typically will have their building's windows that are high-performance regularly cleaned to ensure they are maintaining high energy efficiency standards. In the same way, the maintenance of solar panel cleaning is essential to ensure that the system is operating to the highest standards. It is usually quite simple.

Bird droppings, pollen and dust, and dirt can accumulate on panels and cause a reduction in solar power. Pollen from evergreens is particularly resistant due to its sticky nature and must be removed prior to bonding with the panel.
Cleaning solar panels should be performed according to instructions from the manufacturer and using products that will not damage or scratch the panel's surface. If that scrubbing is required the maintenance worker must use only the best quality window mops and take into consideration changing them frequently, decreasing the chance of scratches during cleaning.
Inspections can be conducted during cleaning time to look for cracks or damaged seals. This is essential for prolonging the life span of panels.
If you're thinking of solar panels as a source of energy for your establishment, make sure to inquire from the dealer whether they offer a "take back" program that is part of their policy.
