You made a big investment in your business when you decided to install solar panels. Solar panels are not a small purchase, but over time they will help you save money. You noticed this at first. Your power was working great, and your energy bill was decreasing. But now, things are starting to slow down. Your electricity isn’t working as well, but your bill is going up. Do you already need new solar panels? Before you make any rash decisions, let’s discuss how you can maximize the efficiency of your commercial solar panels.
What methods maximize commercial solar panel efficiency?
The easiest method to maximize the efficiency of your solar panels is to keep them clean. No matter where your solar panels are located, they’re going to collect dust and dirt. As the dust and dirt pile up, there is a greater barrier between your solar panels and the sun, decreasing efficiency.
As long as you’re keeping your solar panels clean, you shouldn’t have any issues with efficiency. But, you need to make sure you’re cleaning your solar panels correctly. Many people think that the rain will take care of any cleaning that needs to be done since solar panels are outdoors. It’s not quite that convenient, though.
What does your car look like after the rain? Rain water is dirty itself, and it just rearranges the dirt on your car (and your solar panels). So, you may think about just using hose water or a bucket of soapy water and a rag. That’s not going to be super effective, either, because the unfiltered soap and water is going to leave behind residue. Even if it’s a smaller layer than the dirt, you’re still not maximizing the efficiency of your solar panels.
