Solar Panel Cleaning Completed On One Of The UK’s Largest Solar Farms Of Its Kind

We have completed the solar panel cleaning in Powys on one of the UK’s largest solar farms of its kind. Please contact us for a free quote for your solar panel cleaning in Powys.

The solar farm, owned by Mr Davies, is believed to be the largest in Powys. The solar panels are located on top of three poultry sheds at Cottage Farm, Presteigne, near Knighton.

Just one of 3 solar arrays on poultry sheds in Presteigne.

The solar farm is made up of 1,325 Schott solar panels with SMA inverters and will produce over 220,000 kWh per year. Each set of solar panels is approximately 60m x 10m.

We have already cleaned the solar panels on Shropshire’s largest solar panel farm for Mr Davies and he was so impressed with the amount of extra electricity generated, he asked us to clean his other solar farm in Presteigne. This is despite both sites having sprinkler systems fitted.

The sprinkler systems are designed to rinse down the solar panels periodically. The sprinklers can be set to come on as often as needed. Mr Davies has found these to be quite ineffective as the farm sites can be dusty places. A sprinkler system does not appear to be as effective as hoped and therefore Mr Davies could see why manual solar panel cleaning may give better results.

After the manual solar panel cleaning was carried out on the Ludlow solar farm, Mr Davies said the panels appeared to be producing ‘noticeably more electricity.’  He was happy to use our solar panel cleaning service again on the Presteigne solar farm because the benefits were clear to see and found our service to be very effective.  We look forward to carrying future cleans on Mr Davies solar panels at Ludlow and Presteigne and on any future projects he may have lined up.

We carry out solar panel cleaning in Powys and the whole of Wales on both residential and commercial installations. We are able to explain why solar panel cleaning is important and how we clean solar panels.

Then the panels are scrubbed, removing the lichen and then finally, washed down and rinsed.  All work carried out by Clean Solar Solutions is in conjunction with the SEUK Best Practice Guidelines 2021.
