Tommy's Window Cleaning & Power Washing knows
Proper Solar Panel cleaning is an important first step in acquiring the most energy from your panels. In order for your system to run efficiently your panels should be cleaned routinely (Scheduling Available). Your panel’s production depends on the amount of sunlight that reaches your internal crystals. It’s well established dirty panels can cut output power by 50% to 70%. Time and time again after cleaning our customer’s solar panels, we are being told their efficiency has jumped significantly. Therefore, this is something to really think about. How much money are you losing by not having us routinely maintain their cleanliness for you?
Worried about the cost? We charge about 5 to 10 dollars per panel. However, this cost can be cut dramatically if you purchase a multiple service package from us. You will quickly see, the economics of this. In many cases we are able to get your solar panels cleaned for really next to nothing.
Solar modules usability depends on light energy (photons) from the sun to achieve electricity through what is called the photovoltaic effect. The predominant form of modules utilize wafer-based crystalline silicon cells or thin-film cells based on cadmium telluride or silicon. The anatomic or structural (load carrying) member of a module can either be the top layer or the back layer. Furthermore, Tommy's Window Cleaning & Power Washing teaches each and every one of our team members the dynamic nature of the Solar modules. We know cells must also be protected from mechanical damage and moisture, therefore because of our knowledge base your equipment is very safe in our capable hands. Most solar modules are rigid, but semi-flexible ones are available, based on thin-film cells. It’s very important to understand this before some individual just starts cleaning something they know nothing about. This is why it’s so critical that you check your vendor’s paperwork and insurance. Have them call the insurance company in front of you and then get the number and cross reference it on the internet. Otherwise, you could be in a situation that is less than desirable.
