1.Is the energy produced affected
if the panels get dirty?
Usually any dust or dirt washes off the panels when it rains,
if the panels are installed on a roof of at least 15 degrees.
In extreme cases dust may cause a power reduction of about 10%.
2.How long do solar panels last?
Solar panels have a manufacturers warranty of 25 years and a working
lifetime of 40 years and beyond.
3.Do panels need cleaning?
Not as long as they are mounted at a steep enough angle (>20°)
so that the self-cleaning glass works.
