2016-09-07_15-47-57When you decided to install solar, it wasn’t a decision you would have taken lightly. After all it is your home or business that you are adding a long term investment to. You would have researched and compared to ensure you were having the right size, and the best solar products installed, to help you save on your energy costs.

Therefore it is important to ensure you continue to get the most out of your investment by maintaining and managing your solar system.

Dirty Solar Panels produce up to 30% less energy!

Regular cleaning and maintenance of your solar panels is an affordable solution to ensure your system is working in peak condition and you’re maximising your energy savings.

What causes your panels to become dirty?

  • Debris and sap from trees
  • Dust and Dirt
  • Moss, mildew and mould build up
  • Bird droppings
  • A common issue for South East Qld is crystallising ocean salt
  • Pollution

Unfortunately rain water does not clean your solar panels, any more than it does your car. Which is why a professional clean and audit of your system is required. Gold Coast Energy solar panel cleaning uses no harsh chemicals and detergents; our team of experts perform a solar panel clean that is an environmentally safe solution for your environmentally friendly solar panels.

The benefits of a professional clean include:

  • Maximise the amount of energy produced by your panels
  • Maximise your energy savings
  • Ensure the longevity of your investment
  • Detect any emerging problems so they can be fixed early
  • Maintain the manufacturer warranty requirements

One of our clients recently experienced what a clean and audit could achieve for his system. This situation is all too common and many people become dissatisfied with their system, when it’s not delivering the same results as it was, when it was new.

Frank wasn’t happy with the output of his solar and wanted to add more panels to his home but could not fit more. His panels were very dirty and they had not been cleaned since he got them installed (4 years ago). When we cleaned his panels the efficiency picked up by 30%. Frank now wants his panels cleaned yearly. This has been booked in for a call back next Spring!

Enquiries handled with promptness. Work carried out with efficiency and politeness. So pleased that I am booking it in for next year.” – Frank.


Gold Coast Energy and the Clean Energy Council recommend that you have an Annual Audit and Clean of your solar to ensure it is working at optimal condition.
