    The extreme 47 is 703£ plus the vat.

    I would personally invest as little as possible in domestic solar panel cleaning. Most customers are ignorant when it comes to solar panel cleaning.

    I have quoted silly prices before. Like 10£ for 8 panels as i was doing some next door and they said no.

    We got good response in winter months. But nothing now, well had a call yesterday (not confirmed job yet)

    Before investing in kit I would speak to ppl that have spc fitted first as most you might find simply don't want it done. Main reason is they have been told by companies that fit them they do not need cleaning as solar panels come with self cleaning glass. In the uk climate with the amount of rainfall we get they are probably correct in saying so.

    Be careful not to scratch the panels with that brush mate. Bristles are quite hard aren't they?
