As solar energy evolves and becomes more mainstream, the industry will shift its focus from development and installation to maintenance and performance. The global solar market grew by more than 29% in 2017, according to a study published by Yale University, bringing total operating solar power in the world to 405 GW – 89% of which was installed since 2010.
As the focus turns to maintenance, system owners will need to devote more time and resources to overall performance. Clean solar panels can dramatically enhance system efficiency, but doing so can be dangerous, labor-intensive and ineffective. Uncleaned system can also break down far sooner than regularly and properly cleaned systems.
