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? :))

Shit I was thinking £2 a panel might have to rethink that

They are the quickest things to clean and basically no dirt on them, coming from the ones I've cleaned

Do you need to use a special brush head on the waterfed pole for solar panels? or can ou use the normal one for windows?

depends what poles your using. I havegardiner poles and I have a solar panel brush for that, much softer and about twice length with 6 jets I think

Solar steve pays 18 pence a panel !!! . From my experience an avarage person with a pole will clean between 800 to 1200 panels a day on a ground mount farm . Charge what you feel the customer will be happy with , personally I am going away from doing this type of work I have a few large farms that I've done over the last few years , but won't be renewing the contracts as I hate doing them , there's more money to be earned doing gfs and windows also the farms around where I am the access is very poor with deep ruts in the fields and when wet it's difficult to get in and out , shame really as there are loads of them here , that's my experience anyway
