Do I need to clean my solar panels?

As the saying goes, prevention is better than cure. Although each solar panel system is designed and installed carefully designed to avoid as many shades and obstruction as possible, leaves, twigs, and even dust can reduce the efficiency of your solar panels.

With our tropical climate in Malaysia, our solar panels require a good rinse. Whenever there is a material between the sun energy and the glass of a solar panel, the solar cells output performance may be less effective.

Therefore, it is important for you to run a consistent operation and maintenance to maximize the solar panel system performance that you’ve installed at your building. This helps to improve the lifespan of solar panel system and minimizes failures and defects as well.

  • Accurate data predictions of symptoms for possible breakdown so that the technician team could help reduce the possibility of breakdown.
  • Immediate replacement can be arranged if it involves Defect Liability Period (DLP) to ensure system operation is normal.

Here’s an illustration on the comparison of the solar panel performance with and without operation and maintenance.

From the chart, we can see that solar panel system with operation and maintenance perform better solar energy output. If you are unsure of the proper maintenance equipment for cleaning your solar panels and solar roof, our operation and maintenance team can advise you on the best course of action so you could get most out of the solar energy system all year round!
