Solar panels are by nature designed to withstand everything that nature can throw at them and are therefore low maintenance items. That’s the point – low maintenance, not no maintenance. Anything, no matter how well engineered, must take account of Mother Nature.                         

The cleaning of solar panels is very important to the output of your solar system. Think of a clean car windscreen versus a windscreen that has not been cleaned in 6 months.

Dust build-up during the summer months can result in 5-10% loss of your entire solar energy system. It is recommended that you have your modules expertly cleaned, using only the right materials to ensure system optimisation.

There are a few obvious things that you can pay attention to ensure the most efficient output of your system.

Solar Panels: The Positive and Negative Impacts on the Environment

guest post by Derek Lotts

Environmentalism is a hot topic in the modern world, and rightfully so. With the rise of industrialization over the past two centuries, the burning of fossil fuels and the overuse of limited natural resources for energy generation as well as the decrease in clean water supply, the Earth is quickly moving towards a perilous future.

Humanity is in need of a radical change in the way energy is harvested, stored and utilized. Although fossil fuel companies want you to believe otherwise, solar energy is the only sustainable, eco-friendly and inexhaustible source of clean energy.

Solar power is the way of the future, as it will allow the Earth’s population to thrive under an unlimited supply of energy, decrease energy expenses, and preserve the environment. Here’s how solar panels can benefit the ecosystem, promote long-term health, and allow for financial independence.
