Photovoltaic: Cleaning & Maintenance
Your photovoltaic system is exposed to the weather around the clock. It’s not just rain, wind, snow or sun that affects your modules. Other pollutions such as air pollution, dust, road traffic or bird droppings can add to the performance of the modules in the long run.
The decision whether a PV cleaning is useful or should be carried out is purely economical. The following principle applies: if the loss of yield of your PV system is higher than the cost of cleaning, then it makes an economic sense.
