Solar panels need to be clean to generate power effectively.
Softwashing is the perfect way to clean them without damaging electrics or roof tiling.
Any man-made or organic residue or film that blocks the transmission of sunlight to photovoltaic solar (or thermal) panels can substantially diminish their performance. Less light means less energy, leading to a lower return on commercial or domestic investment in renewables. Often the offenders are molds, algae, and bacterial atmospheric growths that can be removed by soft washing. While rainwater is thought to keep solar panels as clean as possible, this is not the case. Environmental factors such as salt in seaside locations, dust, and grime from highways and railways can dramatically decrease output. When monitoring their vast power usage, Google proved that regular solar panel cleaning could improve panel performance by 12%.
While it may seem obvious and straightforward to clean the panels yourself, tap water, when used in isolation, is not up to the task since residues and deposits of salt and minerals on the boards are left behind after tap water treatment. Using chemical-free pure water, these deposits can be eliminated. Old fashioned cleaning methods, like high-pressure cleaning, are too violent for the technology and will damage photovoltaic cells and reduce the shelf-life and performance of solar panels.
When cleaning solar panels, we use a clearly defined softwashing process that brings these vital technologies back to their optimum, using pure water.
We use extendable water-fed poles wherever possible and cherry pickers to avoid needing unnecessary access to the roof.
We use localized soft brushes that offer maximum protection for solar panels.
Softwashing will bring your solar panels back to their peak, returning your investment and keeping them performing for as long as the sun shines.
Shadow 80™ Pure Water Makers
When solar panels dry with spots, the water is not filtered and leaves behind minerals on the panels. The spots that you are seeing are simply dried mineral buildup.
Our Pure Water Module removes the minerals by filtering them out, resulting in 99% pure water!
Using professional-grade filters, the water is first processed through a 40" Carbon Filter to remove pollutants, metals, microbiological contaminants, and additional minerals. It's then processed through 2 Reverse Osmosis filters making the water 98% pure, followed by a Deionized filter resulting in the water becoming 99.9% Pure!
When this pure water comes in contact with the solar panels, it absorbs the minerals of the panel, allowing the surface to dry spot-free.
