Makes sense. There is a unrecoverable energy loss with every transfer, if there is even more resistance due to dust build up then it makes sense that efficiency would go down

You might have observed the overall efficiency of your system getting reduced after a month or so. Well, dust is the primary reason behind it. With time, the layers of dust build up on the surface of solar modules & as a result - efficiency is heavily affected.

Proper cleaning of modules is one of the best ways to get back that lost efficiency of solar modules.

If you have installed a smaller system ( < 5 kW), then wet cleaning using water & a brush is best. However, if you have installed a larger system, then it is a quite hard & time-consuming task to clean panels manually. So, it is always better to install solar panel cleaning robots. These systems clean modules using air pressure & without using any water.

Well, talking about - how you can safely clean your solar modules? Here are some points that you can consider:

#1. Make sure whether the panels can be cleaned using normal water or you have to use ionized water.

#2. Clean your panels using water either in the early morning or during the evening. Avoid washing them during the day.

#3. Do not put pressure on the surface of modules - as might leads to microcracks.

#4. Avoid climbing on the surface of modules.

I hope you found it helpful!
