Great to know! Thanks for the info. Gonna try it tomorrow.

March 25, 2020 at 5:18 pm

Awesome! Exactly what I need for the same purpose. Cheers

Solution not viable in areas with water restrictions.

March 25, 2020 at 5:18 pm

Thank you sir!

My spouse works as an administrator in a large residential building 3 stories high. The previous administration had been paying 10 grand a year to clean the windows. Using this stuff the custodian cleaned all the windows in a few days and it only cost a little over $500.00 This stuff is great

Yeah …I really need to buy a ranch

Good info bro.. Question good idea to use a wash brush or better off not to ? Can you damage the Solar panels

March 25, 2020 at 5:18 pm

Will this take care of pollen? I tried a regular hose with spray and to no avail. Still has pollen, alot of it.

March 25, 2020 at 5:18 pm

Are there any problems with you panels if you are still cleaning this way?

March 25, 2020 at 5:18 pm

is this the same for the flexible solar panels..? they have a clear plastic film… will the Windex cause the plastic to cloud or turn yellow..? Thanks

Just get out there and clean them when it’s raining make the rain work to your advantage. Rainwater doesn’t spots like hard water either as long as your surfaces are clean.

March 25, 2020 at 5:18 pm

Excellent!!! Thanks for the information

March 25, 2020 at 5:18 pm

I bought two bottles of the windex. Idid exactly what was shown. I have 21 panels. My son in law helped. We finished in 40 minutes and that was because we had to move the ladder. Went to his house and cleaned his 20 panel system. We did two systems in under 3 hours. That included travel time. We checked the panels for residue and there was none. I paid about $16 and two systems. I was quoted $300 by a cleaning company just for my house. Thanks for the video.

Just look and learn much more about it from Avasva website.

March 25, 2020 at 5:18 pm

This is not a accurate way to clean panels. Using any chemicals on your panel will do more damage. This is not correct.

March 25, 2020 at 5:18 pm

Got solar panels been up 7 years on west roof landscape gone green lower 1/3 and lichen is started to grow ib spots. It takes brillo pad to get it off. Is there a chemical I can spray on that will kill it all and rain does the rest?

March 25, 2020 at 5:18 pm

Hire a pro thats bullshit

March 25, 2020 at 5:18 pm

This will Void your warranty on most solar panel. I have sunpower panels and I can only use water. Any chemicals such as Windex will degrade the surface of the panels making them accumulate dust faster.

March 25, 2020 at 5:18 pm

Do you have hard water? we have really hard water and I fear rinsing will leave spots. My roof is steep and not much room to navigate on foot around the panels.

March 25, 2020 at 5:18 pm

I've heard not to shot cold water on your panels, then in other videos everyone uses the water house. So I am guessing the cold water hype is just that? Thank you

The Material Safety Data Sheet from Johnson and Johnson lists Ethoxylated iso-decanol ,Sodium xylene sulfonate and Sodium carbonate as the chemicals used in this product. Yes there is no ammonia, but the PH is high between 10-11 which is very strong. I guess the question is would any PV manufacturer cancel a warranty using this high ph product on the modules ?

March 25, 2020 at 5:18 pm

Using Chemicals on Solar panels will VOID your panel warranty. Be careful not to cause damage to your expensive investment using chemicals with ammonia.

March 25, 2020 at 5:18 pm

Did this yesterday and made 160 bucks for 90 min. Thanks for posting this

March 25, 2020 at 5:18 pm

Used normal windex surface spray as gutters used to collect rain water for drinking. Requires walking on the roof

Cleaning Over time, dirt and dust can accumulate on the glass surface of the module, reducing its power output. Yingli Solar recommends periodic cleaning of PV modules to ensure maximum power output, especially in regions with low precipitation. In order to reduce the potential for electrical and thermal shock, Yingli Solar recommends cleaning PV modules during early morning or late afternoon hours when solar radiation is low and the modules are cooler, especially in regions with hotter temperatures. Never attempt to clean a PV module with broken glass or other signs of exposed wiring, as this presents a shock hazard. Clean the glass surface of the PV modules with a soft brush using soft, clean water with a recommended pressure less than 690kPa, which is typical of most municipal water systems. Water with high mineral content may leave deposits on the glass surface and is not recommended. Yingli Solar PV modules may contain a hydrophobic anti-reflective coating on the glass surface to enhance power output and reduce dirt and dust buildup. In order to avoid module damage, do not clean PV modules with a power washer or pressure washer. Do not use steam or corrosive chemicals to facilitate the cleaning of modules. Do not use aggressive tools or abrasive materials that could scratch or damage the glass surface. Failure to comply with these requirements may adversely affect the PV module performance. Yingli Solar PV modules are designed to withstand high snow loads. However, if removing snow is desired to enhance production, use a brush to gently remove snow. Do not try to remove frozen snow or ice from PV modules.

My works too. I used Inplix handbooks and build it without any problems.

March 25, 2020 at 5:18 pm

IF you want to make it by yourself just go to InpliX page.

Good tip, we are getting solar panels soon. I can see that my neighbor's 8 month solar panels are quite dirty so I think I shall be doing this periodically during the California dry season.

March 25, 2020 at 5:18 pm

Looks simple enough 🙂

March 25, 2020 at 5:18 pm

Great tip man, we are planning on getting solar power soon so this will definitely help 🙂
