I work in Hertfordshire which is not cheap and i still only charge  £2 a panel

Only so much you can charge for them as they take minutes to clean

If you can get more then go for it but i just charge per panel

If you clean their windows and you can do them whilst you're there then it's on the high side for me. If you don't and it's a one off job charge as much as the punter is prepared to pay.

I don't do domestic Windows, unless it's a full upvc clean or gutter clean. So just solar clean price.

I didn't realise that 

For me to go out my way just to do the panels then i reckon £3 a panel is fair so £36.. £40 is reasonable then i reckon

I don't do jobs like that except for my window customers so they would be done while i am there earning anyway

I charged £40 to clean these last week and he is an existing customer. 

 

They were covered in a mound of pigeon poo where the aerial is though but still only took about 35mins. Then I did the windows as usual afterwards. £56 for an hours work. 

 

I did a schools last weekend that was about twice as many as that for £65 as well. 

 

You have to charge what you want to earn for these things. I can’t do too many as I’m only using an SLX22 so I have to be on a roof or equivalent to access them though.

King's Lynn in Norfolk. Nobody values you for selling yourself cheap. We have 8 employees and 10 vans on the road. Not only doing windows but carpets, ovens, upholstery, gutters etc.

fit rate is over 50p /kWh, for early installs. Got to let your price reflect that.

Sorry to sound dumb but what do you mean buy that..?
There's a lot of council properties around our area which were prayed upon by rip off solar firms..so a lot of these potential customers don't see this as a necessity..or their responsibility, it's a hard sell.

If they're installed on a council property, you need to find out who is getting the fit and the export. They will be benefiting from the clean.

First cleans take a few goes to make sure they are really clean.So £3 a panel is fair.

I'm getting over 50p a kw with my 4kw system so I cleaned all 16 panels today for the first time in 6yrs. Would be happy to pay £50 a clean every 3yrs because it would pay for itself in 3yrs. My panels are now sparkling and I will take daily readings and compare with old readings. Will let you know how it goes.

Thanks

Biggest reading I have ever had was 23kws, 8 panels East facing and 8 panels West facing. The longest day I got 25kws, 23kws fri, 20kws sat, 24kws sun and 21kws now. Panels are meant to deteriorate in time and mine seem to be getting better. The cleaning Must have made a big difference because I'm hitting figures I didn't think I could achieve. Now I know why the solar farms get the panels cleaned every 3 to 6 months. I scrubbed them with WFP and degreaser and then rinsed with tap water. I will be doing it every March from now on. :1f609:

Cleaning 2 panels tomorrow for £10.00 they are just the type of for heating the water. They haven't been cleaned in around 5 years and are on a ongoing new housing development.

They are for a good long term client just round the corner from a school I am doing in the morning so hopefully should be a quick job.

If they’re the old evacuated tubes, be careful.
