Pittsburgh, PA, September 20, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- In a recently released Google blog concerning the data from the cleaning of their solar panels, Google has shed a whole new light on the entire solar industry. While most major solar system owners are aware that cleaning solar panels on a regular basis is the only sure way to keep the system working at it’s most efficient, there are still those who debate the need. With overwhelming evidence in the data provided by Google, it’s safe to say that this debate is over.
This quote concerning the data collected pretty much says it all, “We cleaned these panels for the first time after they had been in operation for 15 months, and their energy output doubled overnight. When we cleaned them again eight months later, their output instantly increased by 36 percent. In fact, we found that cleaning these panels is the #1 way to maximize the energy they produce. As a result, we've added the carport solar panels to our spring cleaning checklist.”
“This is not surprising to us, we have been trying to relay this exact information to the industry for years, I guess it takes a voice as big as Google’s to really open people’s eyes” said Bret Wallace the GM at Solar Maid.
This data posted by Google has not been lost on the solar industry, in fact, it has created a big stir in the demand for solar panel cleaning and maintenance professionals around the nation. For Solar Maid, the largest national network of solar panel cleaning operators, they have seen a spike in demand directly related to this article.
Bret Wallace stated, “I wish Google would keep pushing their data through their enormous distribution channels in order to get the word out because it does cause a tremendous growth spike in our business.”
Solar system owners should take heed to the data released by Google because it will reduce payback time as they discuss in more detail in the article.
