SOLAR PANEL PERFORMANCE MONITORING

At Acen Solar, we can provide integrated systems for solar panel performance monitoring. This is the process of tracking and evaluating the output and efficiency of a solar panel system over time. We can install monitoring devices and software to gather data on various parameters related to solar panel operation, such as electricity production, energy yield, voltage, current, and temperature.

The primary purpose of solar panel performance monitoring is to ensure that the solar panel system is operating optimally and to identify any issues or inefficiencies that may arise. By continuously monitoring the system, it becomes possible to detect problems such as faulty panels, shading, dirt buildup, or wiring issues that could impact performance.

There are different types of solar panel monitoring systems available, ranging from basic to more advanced options.

How often should I clean commercial solar panels?

The frequency of cleaning commercial solar panels can vary depending on several factors such as the location, climate, and environmental conditions. In general, it is recommended to clean solar panels when they become noticeably dirty or when their performance begins to decline.

Here are some guidelines to consider:

  • Dust and dirt accumulation: If you are in an area with minimal dust and dirt, solar panels may require cleaning less frequently. However, if you are located in a dusty or polluted environment, more frequent cleaning may be necessary.
  • Rainfall: Rain can naturally wash away some dirt and debris from solar panels. If you are in an area with regular rainfall, it may reduce the need for manual cleaning.
  • Tilt angle and self-cleaning properties: The tilt angle of the solar panels can affect their self-cleaning ability. If the panels are installed at a steep angle, rainwater is more likely to wash away dirt effectively. Additionally, some solar panels have self-cleaning coatings or technologies that help minimise dirt buildup.
  • Shading and tree debris: If some nearby trees or structures cast shadows on the solar panels, they may accumulate leaves, bird droppings, or other debris. In such cases, regular cleaning may be necessary to maintain optimal performance.

    At Acen Solar, we recommended cleaning your solar panels at least twice a year, ideally in the spring and fall.

    However, if you live in an area with a high amount of dust, pollen, or other debris, you may need to clean your panels more often. If you notice a significant drop in your solar panel’s energy output, it’s a good indication that they may need to be cleaned.
