Motivation


Solar energy is a clean, natural source of energy: it has no emission of harmful substances, so, besides the reduction of expenses it is also extremely environmental friendly. Unlimited quantities are available for us; it is an inexhaustible source of energy, which – thanks to modern technology – is able to produce electricity even in cloudy weather. A distinct advantage is that solar energy is the only kind of energy that can be produced anywhere in the world. Due to its countless benefits, its usage is more and more widespread throughout the world, both at industrial and household levels.

However, to operate PV-panels economically, their regular cleaning is indispensable. The lack of purification can cause up to 10-15 per cent loss in efficiency, depending on the degree of contamination. Our product has been developed in response to the need we identified through our extensive market research and the feedback given by the industry. Based on these, it could easily be seen that available devices on the market are mainly water wasting and anachronistic, so they do not meet the expectations and the requirements of the solar farms. In fact, the industrial consumption of drinking-water has a decisive influence on the continuous decrease of Earth’s available water supply; in some areas the lack of water causes daily problems.

Based on these pieces of information and also our developmental and market experiences, the direction of development was clear, which ended up in creating our patent protected Solar Farm Cleaner Robot in 2012.

 

Some would have you believe that an occasional rain storm will effectively clean your solar panels. Well here in Washington it rains all the time and we still have to regularly wash our cars so that theory doesn’t seem to hold water.

 

 Industry reports say the lack of scheduled cleanings can cause solar panels to lose 15 – 25% of their efficiency and increase a solar cells pay back time by 3 – 5 years.

 

Self cleaning systems are one option but not only do they present a substantial investment they share one inherent flaw with rain storms – they leave water deposits on solar panels. These deposits will not be removed with subsequent cleanings with soap and water.

After we realize a good cleaning is called for the next step is to choose a product that will not only be safe for solar panels or skylights but will also be safe for the building, the ecology and our families and employees.
