How to clean solar light panels

Why is it important to clean the solar panel?

The solar panel is responsible for absorbing the sun’s rays in order to charge the batteries that power the solar light. Anything that obstructs the panel from receiving sunlight can negatively impact the amount of charge received and therefore the performance of the light. Dust and dirt can be one such obstruction and so it is important to clean the panel routinely.

How to clean the panel

We recommend using a dry or damp cloth to gently wipe the panel clean. You could also use window or glass cleaner if the panel is particularly dirty. We do not advise you use any abrasive materials to clean your solar panel, this includes Brillo pads, scorers and/or bleach.
