If you’re in a dusty ag environment, please make sure and take standard preventative maintenance steps. We recommend washing panels three to four times a year under normal conditions and even more frequently during dusty drought conditions, particularly before the summer’s high utility peak rates. Only use water — no soap, no chemicals — and a brush and squeegee. Remember to squeegee in order to prevent hard-water calcium deposit buildup per the panel vendor's recommended procedures.
We recommend a "panel" of cleaning services to our clients, depending on their location. Here are a few of the cleaning service providers we love to recommend to our solar clients:
