Cleaning Solar Panels – Frequently Asked Questions
- What is Di-ionized water and why do you use it?
De-ionized water is water that has been filtered to remove ions. We use Deionized as it is 100% chemical free and environmentally sustainable. However, the major benefit of its use is the spot and blemish free finish! This finish allows the panels to operate at their maximam capacity, optimising their efficiency and ultimately allows all clients to receive the most financial benefits from their investment.
- How much does it cost?
Our services start from $30.00. Solar panels potentially operate at up to 40% less effectively when coated in dirt and grime. Results have shown the financial costs of the services are far more affordable than the possible financial losses of this decrease in efficiency.
