Disclaimer: The Solar Detective does not consider Solar Panel Cleaning to be a DIY project and does not recommend you tackle this project yourself. Keep in mind that cleaning solar panels brings together 600-1000 volts of electricity, water and the person cleaning. Climbing ladders and working on a wet roof is dangerous. Lastly, most hose water will leave hard water deposits which will create a shadowing film that reduces production. Hire someone knowledgeable in solar electricity and panel manufacturer guidelines to tackle this endeavor.
Solar panel manufacturers recommend cleaning their panels once a year. Some production guarantees required panels to be cleaned quarterly. Be sure to read your warranties and guarantees carefully.
