Solar Panel Cleaning

The Mojave Desert has long been prime real estate for solar farms due to the vast expanse of open landscape, the high levels of sunshine that can he harnessed and the proximity to some of America’s greenest areas.

There is a 3,500-acre solar farm in the desert that is capable of producing vast amounts of green electricity, but only when conditions are optimal.

Issues with dust and dirt have threatened the effectiveness of this site, to the point where engineers are looking into the potential of using drones in cleaning sites.

Solar farms are magnets for dust and need an effective cleaning solution to maintain efficiency

Drones for cleaning sitesThe problem with this sunny, empty landscape is that it is also incredibly dry. This means that dust clouds can build up in bad weather and the solar panels are often … Read the rest
