Everyone believes in cleanliness, whether our house, car, or furniture, and all of these require timely cleaning. Then solar panel cleaning can’t be an exception, especially when it helps generate energy from Sun.
Why is it required to clean solar panels?
It is essential to clean solar panels as it directly affects energy generation. The leading causes of dirt on solar panels are dust and bird excreta which are natural phenomena, and thus, we can’t stop those. Still, we can clean our panels and be confident that these causes may decrease energy generation by 5%.
If you have installed a 10 kW rooftop system, your daily generation is around 50kW to 55 kW, and your monthly generation is about 1500 kW. Due to dust and bird excreta, the energy generation drops by 75 kW in a month. Now, assume that your energy cost per unit is ₹10, so here you will have to bear a loss of ₹750 a month.
