    I do 2 or 3 a week for customers, I do ask them to shut it off at the isolator switch but that's just being cautious.

    Never had a problem, there is no recorded incident anywhere of fatality or serious injury from cleaning solar panels.

    Don't worry about isolator, panels will be live if there's daylight.

    Clean them in the same way you would clean velux windows.

    Depends on what fit rate they're getting.

    I know nothing of tarrifs - I charge £3-£6 per panel dependant on access.

    Spin them round and do them from the insides? :))
