Photovoltaic cleaning - a worthwhile investment

It is no longer a secret that solar power and photovoltaic systems require regular cleaning. Just about every system should be cleaned at least once during its service life. Some systems exhibit yield losses of up to 30%. In particular, heavy soiling can be expected on systems installed on agricultural buildings with livestock, industrial plants and on roads with heavy traffic. These systems generate 30% less electricity, and therefore 30% less remuneration for feed-in. Only a clean system can generate maximum yields.


Cost-benefit analysis of a 30-KWP system

 
The basis for our sample calculation is a system with 30.000 kWh and a remuneration of 0,46 cents/kWh (approx. 13.800 € annually).

Products for your PV system

PV cleaning with SOLA-TECS C

PV cleaning with SOLA-TECS C

PV cleaning with pole systems from the floor or roof. For the best clean from the floor, roof or elevating platform, we recommend the SOLA-TECS C. The rotating brushes are guided using a telescopic lance or modular poles.

PV cleaning with SOLA-TECS W

PV cleaning with SOLA-TECS W

PV cleaning without pole system from the roof. Do you want to clean your PV system from the roof and you have safe access to the crest? Then the SOLA-TECS W is exactly the PV cleaning system that you require. The brush roller is conveniently lowered raised again with a high-pressure hose.

LICHEN REMOVER

LICHEN REMOVER

Our lichen cleaner is equipped with 5 rotation point steel nozzles. With their needle-fi ne jets, lichens are simply removed reliably from the PV module without additional agents. The lichen remover can be fl exibly controlled in cleaning distance and direction of travel via our modular pole system. Due to our mechanical height control, the distance of the jets to the PV module always remains the same and thus also the cleaning result.
