Should I Clean My Solar Panels

Leaves, bird poop and airborne particles (from dirt and pollen) all dirty your solar panels. When solar panels get dirty it means they produce less power. Grime and debris reduce the ability of the solar array to perform at full capacity. Solar panels work by allowing light into the solar cells. The more light that hits a panel, the more power it will generate. Cleaning your solar panels will increase their performance and efficiency.  So the best way to make sure your solar panels are producing fully is to have them cleaned regularly.

Will rain clean my solar panel

So will rain water clean your solar panels?  If you didn't clean your car's windshield would you lose visibility? Even if the car is rained on, the rain contains airborne dust particles that settle and attach to the surface after the rainwater evaporates. Ever noticed when you use your windshield wipers the areas the wipers don’t touch have a dirty film. Your solar panel will act the same way as that windshield whee the wipers won’t reach.

Can I Clean my solar panels myself ?

Yes with the proper equipment, the problem is most homeowners don't have the equipment needed. Panels should be cleaned using purified water and a soft brush. Panels should not be cleaned with a pressure washer, as doing so could result in cracked glass. Abrasives and chemicals should also never be used as they could damage the solar panels.
