    Received an email from a company wanting me to quote some domestic and commercial solar panel cleaning. I have no problem with the domestic ones, but how much would you guys charge to clean 98 solar panels (wfp) no cherry picker needed, on a commercial property?

    98 panels on one roof? Probably about £70 maybe a bit less, it depends how regularly they want it doing. Some people will say more, others less.

    Just found out is a 1 off clean, but will probably have them done twice a year!

    i would go for something around this price mark said, there is traveling, extra insurance costs, and depending how long it takes from start to finish, it could be the only job you do in the day

    take me about 10-15 minutes to clean a 18 panel system.

    so looking around 2 hours traveling, depending on the building with access etc it could take about 2 hours cleaning. so looking around 4-5 hours for the job.

    Hi squeak. Is the building single storey? If so, you will fly around them provided they are not covered in salt. You should do at least 2 panels per minute, making it less than an hours work, plus travelling and set up time. We have done installations that size for about £300 if it is a one off. You can drop the price substantially if they go for regular cleans. Where do you cover with solar cleaning?

    Hi Steve

    We cover the Yorkshire area for larger solar cleaning (commercial) and West Yorkshire for domestic.
