Dirty solar panels can lose up to 25% of their Energy Generation Efficiency!
Although most people think of solar panels as self-cleaning, the accumulation of dirt, dust, bird droppings, lichen and traffic haze (especially near busy roads or in built-up, industrial and agricultural areas) can drastically reduce energy generation. The result … substantial reductions in Feed in Tariff (FiT) efficiency.
Now experts recommend the regular, professional cleaning of solar panels in order to retain maximum Return on Investment (ROI) benefits.
At Scanclean UK we have been providing this valuable service to an increasing number of private homeowners and also to councils, housing associations and social housing authorities, schools and commercial organisations for several years.
Everyone who has used our solar panel cleaning service has confirmed that their panels’ output and payback performance has been significantly improved.

cleaning apparatus that are H&S and environmentally compliant to tackle this
problem. In addition to being more efficient, this service is now also more cost-
effective and on a recent project we managed to cut costs for our client by over
By neglecting to clean solar panels you could lose up to 25% FiT benefits. One of our housing clients who has around 1700 properties fitted with solar panels, calculates they could potentially lose up to £1000 every week.
THIS IS A VITAL SERVICE THAT PAYS FOR ITSELF!
