Tips for Solar Panel Cleaning

Over time, your solar panels will accumulate debris that can have an impact on their performance, like dirt, bird droppings, or leaves. We recommend keeping your panels as clean as possible. 

  • If you’re able to safely access your roof, we recommend using a soft washcloth and Dawn dish soap. Make sure to not put any weight on your panels or use anything abrasive, like brushes, because the panels can easily scratch and lose efficiency.  
  • If you’re unable to get on your roof, you can spray your solar panels with a hose from the ground. Be sure to use low-pressure streams and avoid using a pressure washer, the hose should simulate a healthy rain.
