THE CHALLENGE

The success of solar power as a source of renewable energy is driven by economics. Studies have conclusively shown that dirt, dust, and bird droppings can reduce PV electricity production by up to 40% or more. Without regular cleaning at an affordable cost, solar panels will not produce their promised quantities of electricity, nor will they be able to deliver a reasonable return on investment for their owners.

THE SOLUTION

.

The Power of Air

Solaris Aerobotic™ Autonomous Cleaners use patented air-powered technology for cleaning PV panels while avoiding the use of water that turns the fine powder-like dust of desert environments into highly-adhesive mud. Solaris Aerobotic Autonomous Cleaners use compressed air to propel the cleaner, rotate the latex cleaning brush, and blow away the fine dust and loose dirt. Without the need for electrical motors or metal parts, the lightweight Solaris Aerobotic Cleaners can be installed directly on the PV panels without expensive supports or rails. They much less than other autonomous solutions, enabling affordable daily cleaning that maximizes your solar energy output.

Effective & Built to Last

Solaris cleaners are designed to clean PV panels for up to 10 years. They are produced through injection molding and engineered with plastic materials highly resistant to harsh environmental conditions, including Polyamide reinforced with glass fibers and treated for UV and hydrolytic stability. Also, smart operations such as a covered docking station, analytics for proactive maintenance, and optimized cleaning schedules maximize product longevity, cleaning effectiveness, and ROI.

 

HOW IT WORKS

1.

The air-powered motor propels the robotic cleaner across the PV panels.

2.

The motor also rotates the cleaning brush, and jets air onto the panels.

3.

The brush loosens the dust which is blown away by the compressed air.

4.

The robot is parked on the side and passes in the opposite direction on the next cleaning.
