      It’s Time to Come Clean

      It’s Time to Come Clean

      Dust-Free, Dirt-Free, Come Summer, Winter and Beyond

      PV solar panels are hailed for being relatively low-maintenance for home-owners. But with drastic weather shifts, rain, wind, bird droppings, and dust everywhere all the time, you could experience more than a dirty solar panel. Your panel’s ability to generate power could literally be compromised. Thankfully, you don’t need to fork out thousands on professional PV solar panel cleaners. Here are three simple steps to clean your PV solar panels yourself, today..

      #1: Gentle Brushing

      Start by loosening visible debris on the surface using a soft brush.

      #2: Spray Away

      Whip out the garden hose to blast away grim. Avoid high-pressure sprayers which could cause damage to your solar panel and, in turn, your investment.

      #3: Soft Cloth Wipe 

      Cover a long-handled wiper with a soft cloth to scrub those hard-to-reach corners and prevent grime from accumulating.

      Don’t forget to only work on your solar panel when it’s overcast – hot panels can really ruin your day (and your skin…) and always wear high-quality coveralls like ours here at Kolossus workwear to keep safe on the job…and on your solar panels. How are you keeping your panels clean and grime-free? We’d love to hear your own tips and tricks for safe and effective solar panel cleaning. Start a conversation below!

      The Magic of Solar Paint

       Yes, you read that right. Otherwise known as photovoltaic paint, solar paint is being hailed worldwide as the future of solar. And what is it, you ask? It’s exactly what its name suggests – apply it to any surface, and solar paint will capture the sun’s energy and convert it into actual electricity you can use in your home or office space.

       How Does It Work?

      The paint itself is engineered with billions of light-sensitive materials which are suspended in the liquid. While the concept is still relatively new, solar paint is set to empower home-owners and businesses to leverage the potential of solar energy with fast, easy, and cheap installation.

      Why Isn’t It Mainstream Yet?

      The thing about solar paint is that its solar energy capture ranges from about 3% to around 8%. For example, solar paint with 6% efficiency means it captures around 6% of the sun’s available energy. Seeing as conventional silicon solar panels recently hit 20% efficiency, it’s clear to see that solar paint technology still has a long way to go.

      Looking Ahead

      While it’ll probably be a few months or years before solar paint reaches your home, we can already get excited and start planning for its widespread implementation. Whether you’ll be painting the house solar next year or painting your pantry this weekend, don’t make another move without Kolossus Workwear’s coveralls in your DIY arsenal.
