Solar Panel Cleaning Plymouth – Rooftop Storage Facility

by | May 9, 2021 | Solar Panel Cleaning

Clean Solar Solutions have carried out their forst round of solar panel cleaning in Plymouth for 2021. We completed the cleaning of the solar panels on the roof of a Plymouth storage facility. This is part of a growing portfolio that we clean on behalf of a national self-storage chain.

The 166 panels are located on top of the 3-storey building on the edge of Plymouth city centre.

Why Did The Solar Panels Need Cleaning?

The client has their portfolio cleaned by us every year. So this visit was a routine visit, planned maintenance. There was the usual build-up of traffic film and bird droppings, as the panels are located so close to the coast.

On this occasion, it was also noted that a few sections of cabling was hanging out from the bottom of the array and that some remedial works were required.

Apart from this, the system was in good condition. Therefore, this proves the long term benefit of regular cleaning as part of your maintenance program. Firstly, there was no lichen present. Secondly, there was no staining from bird droppings that couldn’t be removed. We see this often on other sites that we clean where regular cleans has not been a priority.
