Frequently Asked Questions
I leased my roof out, should I get the panels cleaned?
Yes, the more power your system produces the more credit you are given.
I have a performance guarantee with my system, should I get my panels cleaned?
Performance guarantees vary by manufacturer, therefore your system could be substantially under producing power and still could be within acceptable levels of a performance guarantee.
My salesman said rain will clean my solar panels, is that true?
No, dust dirt and debris still accumulate on the panels, The angle of the solar panels on your roof is not much different then the angle of the windshield of your car, however solar panels do not have windshield wipers to clean them.
How often should I have my solar panels cleaned?
In most residential areas having your solar panels cleaned twice a year will keep your system operating at peak performance. Although, if you live in coastal areas the build up of salt may reduce the time your solar panels stay clean. Also, living near a highway or in a farming/industrial region may also require you to have your panels cleaned more frequently.
