Clean your solar panels.
Lichen growth, birds muck, and algae are the enemies of solar panels. The amount of time solar panels generate (decades) means regular solar panel cleaning is necessary.
Keeping solar panels clean is more of an issue with PV solar panels (photovoltaic) than solar heating panels or evacuated tubes type. Photovoltaic panels require direct sunlight to generate, and why on a southerly-facing roof space.
Removing dirt and dust is essential to squeeze the maximum return from your export tariff. Many were sold panels on the basis that panels were self-cleaning. Solar panels get treated with a microscopically thin layer of titanium dioxide. When ultraviolet light falls on this glass, the coating reacts to the organic matter within the dust particles and breaks it down slowly over time. However, you'll know by keeping your car windscreen clean that atmospheric dirt, dust, and even bird poo may build up quickly over time.
Stubborn build-up can amount to many microns reduce efficiency. Over the solar panel's lifespan, this can amount to a considerable level of performance and tariff loss. We recommend cleaning your photovoltaic panels once a year or every five years to prevent Lichen growth.
Properly maintained older panels can still generate at 80% capacity, even after twenty years. This micro damage occurs as a result of Ultra Violet and long-term weathering.
The cost of keeping your PV solar panels clean pays for themself.
