Solar panel cleaning company Clean Solar Solutions, have hit a milestone by cleaning our 100,000th solar panel. This is a noticeable achievement for a company that is less than 12 months old. It highlights the considerable demand for our solar panel cleaning service and the work ethic and professionalism of our growing company.
Steve Williams, M.D. says “To have cleaned 100,000 solar panels in just 10 months has been a huge undertaking, especially for a company in its infancy. We do not know of any other company in the UK that comes anywhere near this achievement. I would like to thank our team who have really bought into what we are doing here and who have worked incredibly hard to make this happen. We would also like to thank our clients, the vast majority of which provide us with repeat custom. This gives us confidence that our solar panel cleaning service does indeed bring financial benefits to those who use it. If it did not, our clients would not come back.”
Over the last 10 months, Clean Solar Solutions have cleaned solar panels on over 100 sites from as far north as York, down to Exmouth and across to Kent. They continue to clean installations of note such as the 4.1MW solar park at Toyota, Derby and the rooftop array at Hampshire Cosmetics in Waterlooville. Both of these sites were the biggest sites of their kind when they were built in 2011. As well as this, they have cleaned many commercial rooftop installs and scores of arrays mounted on farm roofs and residential homes. Due to their experience, they were recently asked by a large solar park developer to clean a 5MW solar park in Gloucestershire and a 5MW solar park in Northamptonshire, readying them for a possible sale.
In 2013 when the installation side of their business started to slow, installers realised they needed an extra revenue stream and O&M packages were born en masse. In 2014, more companies are realising that solar panel cleaning needs to be an essential part it. Investors are pushing to get their ROI as soon as possible. Every effort is made to help the array perform to its maximum. One cannot afford on large solar parks to be losing output just because of dust or bird droppings. The financial losses can be huge. By cleaning the solar panels, systems see a real boost in output which in turn increases revenue. Seeing a quicker ROI is often the main concern of the investor or end user.
Steve Williams concludes “We estimate that we have helped our clients to reap tens of thousands of pounds worth of extra electricity collectively by having their solar panels cleaned. We have now built up a wealth of experience of cleaning various size arrays that are both ground and roof mounted. It has been and continues to be a steep learning curve, but hitting this milestone proves to us and hopefully the wider industry, that we are more than capable of overcoming the challenges. We keenly anticipate seeing what the future holds for us.”
