How to maintain my solar energy equipment
Solar panels have a life span of approximately 30 years; however, periodic maintenance is necessary to ensure the best performance over time. Frost, weathering, aging and erosion (sand, dust and wind) can degrade the glass surface of the solar panels, making them less transparent and decreasing their electricity yield by about 2 to 3%, to avoid this type of scenario, it is necessary to clean the panels periodically.
How to clean my solar panels
The surface of your panels is equipped at the factory with a thin self-cleaning layer that allows water to run off. However, its effectiveness decreases over time, so it is recommended that you clean your photovoltaic panels every two years. The folds of your panels should be cleaned regularly, especially if they are slightly tilted, using an alcohol-based glass cleaner, a jet of water and a soft sponge. Do not use metal objects, steam or abrasive powders and avoid high pressure cleaning.
