    Out of interest how solid/strong are they? Do you have to be very gentle with them?

    Not cleaned any but good to know.

    Solar panels are extremely strong as they have to conform to EU regulations which means they have to be able to withstand the largest possible hail storm. The reason I know this is because I got chatting to an engineer on a job when they were installing pannels. Hope this helps.

    So what way would you clean the solar panels.
    WFP or go on roof and clean with scrubber and squeegee?

    wfp because the water would go into rain water tanks so no detergent
