by | Dec 5, 2020 | Commercial Rooftop

Clean Solar Solutions provide both commercial and residential solar panel cleaning across Trentham and Stoke-On-Trent. We have just completed the cleaning of 7,180 solar panels mounted on top of a large distribution Centre in Trentham.

This system is one of around 25 systems that we clean on behalf of a large solar O&M company. Health and safety, high quality cleaning and feedback on the overall health of the system is of utmost important to them. Clean Solar Solutions comply with the Solar Trade Association (STA) Rooftop O&M Best Practice Guidelines, so work to the highest standards on all of these fronts.

When Clean Solar Solutions are contracted to complete a clean on a solar array, we also provide a full report on the visual health of the system. This Trentham solar array was suffering from a few issues, including algae growth along the bottom edge of the solar panels. Added to this were a number of broken solar panels some DC cables lying across the top of the panels and end clamps that had come away from the edge of the solar panels, causing them to be less secure.

Clean Solar Solutions re-fitted the DC cable back under the solar panels, which was more cost-effective than the O&M provider sending out their own engineer to carry out the work. This saved our client money and is a good reason for you to choose Clean Solar Solutions for cleaning your solar panels. Our staff are trained for numerous O&M tasks which can be carried out at the same time as cleaning. This very often saves our clients money and provides a swift fix to solar array issues.

We had both of our solar panel cleaning robots deployed on this array. This meant that the solar panels were cleaned in a relatively swift manner, meaning less disruption for the building occupiers.

The O&M provider had a full photographic report sent to them which highlighted all of the issues with the solar array and they can act accordingly to carry out remedial works. Clean Solar Solutions left the solar panels clean and with all cables in situ, as they should be.
