If you are using a home solar power system, how often do you clean the Photovoltaic (PV) panels? Solar panels seldom work at its maximum efficiency due to several factors such as cloud covers, angle of the panel to the sun, shadow overcast, haze, dust etc. Most of these factors, there is nothing much you can do other than cleaning the solar panel.
Since most residential solar panels are installed on the roof, cleaning them can be a major chore. To make the washing and cleaning of the PV panels easier, Mr. Long Arm has introduced its 1008 Pro Curve solar panel cleaning kit.
One of the key features of Mr. Long Arm 1008 is its extension pole. The pole can be extended from 5 to 8 feet length. If you are 6 feet tall and with your arm extended, using the 1008 you can reach a maximum of approximately 16 feet all the way to the side of your roof.
The 1008 Pro Curve comes with a 12 inches and 18 inches channel squeegee rubber. It also has the 18 inches and 22 inches wash bar and wash sleeve attachments.
With this tool, cleaning your solar panels shouldn’t be much of an issue. All you have to do is get yourself out into your yard and do the cleaning. If you rather have someone else do the cleaning for your, pay one of the neighborhood kid to do it instead.
Since you’ve invested a large amount of money installing your home solar power system, you might as well extract the most power out of it. The heart of the system, the solar array has to be cleaned a couple of times a year in order for it to function properly.
