From the Experts in Solar Panel Maintenance: Solar Service


Why Clean Your Solar Panels

Keeping your solar panels clean is absolutely vital to making sure your investment in your solar system works to it’s highest efficiency. Often we can see improvements of up to 40% in efficiency with solar panel cleaning from consumer clients and up to 60% on commercial or industrial sites where a panel where dust, bird droppings, or other build-up over time can limit the ability for the sunlight to reach your panels and operate at their absolute best.

Rain is also NOT the solution for clean panels, if the rain is lighter or doesn’t remove all the dust, dirt, and pollen it might actually build it up more into mud.

Pollen is especially bad around the San Antonio and hill country areas of Texas which can put a damper on your return on your investment in solar panels. As you might see when you’ve found some on your car, pollen tends to be sticky. Add to that rain and it can set in and turn into a glue rather than clean your solar panels.

Need Reviews? We Have Them – Our Name is Trusted With Solar

I’m taking a moment to express my appreciation for the outstanding service that I received from Solar Service. They were recommended to me by family members. I contacted Mr. Brian Rodriguez and he scheduled an appointment for me with two of his technicians, Ben and Sergio. They performed a thorough inspection of my solar system, verbally briefed me on their findings and stated that they would follow up with a written invoice with recommendations of what would need to be done to optimize my system. Ben and Sergio were friendly and professional and I highly recommend Solar Service for your solar needs.

It has been a long time since I experienced service like this company provided. They showed up on time, assessed the problem I had, repaired it in short order and charged me a reasonable rate for their time. I could not be happier. I certainly will keep them at the top of my list of companies that I will call for future service of my solar system..

I just had a technician, David, from Solar Service deal with a monitoring problem I was having with my solar installation. He reviewed my entire system and contacted the monitoring company and resolved the issue. Solar Service responded quickly and professionally, not like the company that installed my panels. They didn't even return my calls.

Very happy with the remove and reinstall. Solar Service was quick to respond, and had a crew out the next day to get all the solar panels off the roof. The crew was professional and worked quickly, and the solar panels were back up and running the next week. It is easy to recommend them for solar related maintenance. Thank you for the good work!

Wasn't sure if my solar was working and my original installer went out of business. Solar Service diagnosed my problem, handled my equipment replacement warranty application with my manufacturer, and repaired my system within a week! I also ended up signing up for one of their service packages. Highly recommend.

I wasn't sure if my panels were producing like they were when they were installed so I called Solar Service. They responded promptly and were at my house the very next day. They found issues that my original installer could not find and fixed them the same day! I would recommend Solar Service to any solar owner in the area if you think you could be having issues with your system.

If you spent your hard-earned money on a solar panel system, you’re likely going to be very worried if your system isn’t producing any results. However, what if we told you that dirt and debris could be the reasons why your solar system isn’t up to par.

As time develops, your system can build-up dirt, pollen, and debris that can prevent your system from absorbing sunlight. This can lead to higher electric bills if this problem goes by unchecked.

The good news is that if you need an efficient solar panel cleaning service in San Antonio, we’re here to help. Since we’ve opened our doors, Solar Service we have helped thousands of people in San Antonio, Texas clean their solar panel system and keep more of their money in their pocket.

To learn more about how you can maintain a clean solar panel system with one of the premier solar panel cleaning companies in San Antonio, read on for more details.

Why Should You Keep Your Panels Clean?

If you want to receive the highest return on your investment, then you should definitely ensure that your solar panels are clean and free from debris. Keeping your solar panels clean can lead to a 40% increase in efficiency for household clients. Commercial clients can look forward to a 60% boost in efficiency if their system is properly cleaned.

Sitting firmly on your roof, your solar panels are directly vulnerable to any and all debris such as bird droppings, pollen, twigs, and other debris. If this build-up continues, your solar panels could become ineffective.

To prevent this from happening, it’s important that you contact a licensed professional to clean your solar panel system.

Can Rain Fix the Issue?

Definitely, at least in some cases. If the debris is small enough, rainfall can wash it away with almost no issue. Though, if build-up occurs, rainfall might not be a viable solution to your problem. In fact, San Antonio is known for its humid and dry weather, so you can’t really count on rain to clean your solar panels.

Rainwater can also make the problem worse if the build-up has been caked on to the surface of your solar panels.

Therefore, the short answer to this question is that rain can be effective in removing small debris from your solar panels, but you can’t depend on it for regular cleaning. To get the most out of your solar panel system, it’s best to call a licensed professional like Solar Service.
