The Power of Water
Solaris Hydrobotics develops and sells water-powered, autonomous robots for cleaning the solar panels of agricultural fields and rooftops, commercial rooftops, small solar fields, and floating PV systems. Our autonomous cleaning robots help ensure the successful use of solar power as a renewable energy and prevent the accumulation of dirt, dust, and bird droppings that reduce PV electricity production by up to 85%.
Our patented technology uses water to propel the robotic cleaners, rotate the cleaning brushes, and wash away the dirt—all without harming the PV panels. Without the need for electrical motors or costly support structures, the Solaris autonomous robots cost significantly less than other solutions and make daily cleaning affordable.
Solaris was founded in 2019 and is located in Herzliya Pituach, Israel.
