    just like you would clean a window, just a long pole and just pure water, any chemicals could casue damage

    for a 16 panel system i charge £30 to give you some idea

    I use a small amount of Ubik 2000 diluted sprayed onto brush if a lot of muck. 16 panels I charge 60. Expensive poles to reach most panels. I get work others can't reach. I price roughly 4 a panel.

    Without cleaning solar plat effciency reduced even it was by rain,So it can be was by any soap sprey but should not be any deposit on panel.
