Renewable Energy

Solar power runs most efficiently when the panels can allow in the maximum amount of light to be absorbed. Due to the angle of the panels, they are unfortunately prone to bird droppings and a general build up of dust and dirt. This collection of muck will not simply wash off with just rainwater.

This will reduce the amount of light that hits the panel and therefore reduce its power output. It’s important to keep the panels clean and working as efficiently as possible to ensure you maintain your investment. Regular bi-annual cleaning helps keep panels running at optimum performance.

Oakdean offers a comprehensive range of solar farm maintenance services including:

 Panel cleaning
 Hedge cutting
 Tree services

We will ensure a thorough solar panel cleaning service to remove any dust, dirt and grime that has built up on your panels. Helping you to get the most from your solar energy. Regular cleaning will prevent the compaction of dirt which could ultimately lead to permanent damage to the panel. The cleaning process will also be more time consuming and costly than if you were to maintain them twice yearly.

The Cleaning Process

Our wide-ranging fleet of solar module cleaning vehicles and equipment enables us to easily access various row widths, panel sizes and formations. Our tracked and wheeled machines allow us to clean any solar farm regardless of terrain or ground conditions.

Our cleaning machines use rotary brushes with de-ionised water sprays to carefully dislodge any dirt or other contaminants from the panels. Followed by a second spray of water to wash this down, off the panel.

We choose to use de-ionised water for cleaning because the calcium in untreated tap water can leave a residue on solar panels. There is also a risk that impurities could harm the coating on the modules. By using de-ionised water, we remove this risk and ensure that the panels are cleaned to the highest standard. 

Grounds Maintenance for Solar Farms 

To allow for ease of access to site and reduce any shadows being cast from trees or hedges, the grounds of your solar farm must also be maintained regularly. Our team at Oakdean can manage the upkeep and maintenance of any size solar farm. Including cutting any overhang from trees or hedges, repairing or replacing fencing and caring for the grass areas.
