We provide award winning solar maintenance and solar panel cleaning in Southwark. We are experienced at carrying out work safely in the City of London. For instance, here we showcase the cleaning of 358 solar panels mounted on top of an art gallery.
The 82KW solar array was installed in 2015. Not that many businesses saw the benefots of solar energy back then. However, the owners of the art gallery did and have been delighted with their decision to install solar. As a result, the solar panels contribute greatly to the wider sustainability goals of the owners of the gallery. Above all, they set an example in how London businesses can derive energy from the sun.
London’s Solar Action Plan has the target of having 1GW of installed solar capacity by 2030. This will increase to 2GW by 2050. This means many more rooftops will have solar panels installed, similar to this building.
Why Did The Solar Panels In Southwark Need Cleaning?
With the gallery being located near the River Thames, the solar panels do suffer from the usual bird dropping issues. These bird droppings create hotspots on the solar panels. These hotspots reduce output and cause the solar panels to overheat. This overheating process can cause the solar panels to fail permanently.
By cleaning the solar panels and removing the hotspots, the solar output will increase. The operations and maintenance company who care for this array carry out regular electrical inspections. These, combined with our team providing on-going solar panel cleaning to this array, will help maintain a high level of output.
