What happens if I don’t clean my solar panels?

Failure to clean your solar panels will result in their productivity dropping.The loss is cumulative. Can it be reduced by hosing off the solar panels with a hose or rain?Sure, a little.As noted in a previous article, hosing off panels or simply allowing rain to be the only effort at cleaning will result in dirty panels.Also there is a danger of damage to a panel if improperly directed spray allows dirt and debris to accumulate in one corner of a panel.

In addition to risking your panels, you are simply throwing away money.We are not talking about esthetics there, we are talking dollars.If you do not allow panels the opportunity to achieve their potential output, you are flushing dollars down the drain.
