How to get the most out of your solar panels

More and more Hawaii property owners are investing in solar panels for their home or business — it’s a smart move fi nancially and it’s good for the environment. But without regular maintenance on those solar panels, their investment may not be bringing them the energy cost savings they were anticipating.

The reason is simple: dirt, salt, even bird droppings and road grime, land on the panels and block the sun’s rays from reaching the system that generates power. This can make you lose up to 30 percent of your solar energy production. Less solar energy means less energy cost savings for you.

Panels that are tilted just 5 degrees or less can collect debris along their lower edge, covering the lower row of cells. Even this relatively small accumulation of grime can significantly decrease your power output.

Fortunately, Clean Solar Panels Hawaii offers an affordable solution to restore your solar energy system’s efficiency: a professional, thorough, safe cleaning by trained professionals.


The company’s cleaning service starts at just $10 per panel — an exceptional value to protect your panels and continue to enjoy the energy cost savings the panels were designed to give you.

Some home do-it-yourselfers may be tempted to hose off their solar panels themselves. But Clean Solar Panels Hawaii uses a special non-abrasive brush that protects your solar panels while deep cleaning them. And instead of ordinary tap water, which can leave a residue, Clean Solar Panels Hawaii professionals use water from a special filtration system. This creates an ultra-pure cleaning agent to wash debris and grime from your solar panels — with this technology, there’s no need for chemicals or harsh detergents to restore your panels’ ability to soak up the sun’s full energy once again.

Most solar panels will need to be cleaned one to two times per year. But if you live in a windy area, or have frequent morning showers, you’re likely to have more particles in the air. That means your panels will get dirtier even faster.
