Quality solar panels are designed to be self-cleaning with rainfall, which is good for us here on the Gold Coast as we usually have quite regular rainfall. If we do have a dry spell the build-up of dust and dirt on your solar panels will undoubtedly reduce the power produced by your solar panels. If we are going through a dry spell it is a good idea to have someone give the solar panels the once over with a hose or wet cloth to maintain the maximum power output possible. Even if you are receiving regular rainfall it isn’t a bad idea to check the condition of your solar panels occasionally to check that they are free from foreign matter. A tree branch or big bat or bird dropping covering a few cells will significantly decrease the power output of your whole system, so it is worth keeping an eye on your panels!
*Gold Coast Solar Power Solutions are able to clean solar panels but only as an addition to a System Check service visit.
