The Solar Scrubbers Inc. is a one-stop solution for Operations and Maintenance (O&M) on solar panels, specializing in solar panel cleaning.
Keeping solar panels clean, free from shade and in good electrical order are all essential parts of solar panel maintenance. We at The Solar Scrubbers ® have the professionals to see that your panels are clean thus operating that their peak performance.
Solar panels work by allowing light into the solar cells. The more light that hits a panel, the more power it will generate. Due to the upwards angle of solar panels, they are more prone to bird droppings and a build-up of general dust and dirt. This reduces the amount of light hitting the panel and reduces its output. As the projected energy figures claimed by solar panel manufacturers and installers are based on the optimum performance of clean solar panels, this build-up of dirt can adversely affect the panel’s ability to meet those projections. So it is important to clean solar panels in order to protect and maintain your investment.
While solar panel cleaning in the United States is relatively new, in other parts of the world solar panel cleaning has been around for a long time. Early adopters of the technology soon realized that if their solar panels were not cleaned regularly, they would not run at their optimum performance.

Why Do I Need to Clean My Solar Panels?
The Need for Solar Panel Cleaning
Did you know that soiling upon a solar panel can decrease its output by 40% or more over time? As they are installed outdoors, solar panels are prone to dust, dirt, debris, and bird droppings, all of which lead to a reduction in the expected output.
1. Dirty Solar Panels
“A dust layer of 4 grams per square meter can decrease solar power conversion by 40 percent.”
2. Main Causes of Build-Up
On an un-maintained panel, the rain will make your dusty panels muddy, collecting more debris and more build up.
3. A Need to Clean!
This necessitates routine cleaning and maintenance in order to ensure that the system continues to work effectively.
