The biggest leap towards clean energy generation
in this century is without a doubt the advent of
Photo voltaic cells and consequently Solar energy
based Power plants. Although we have crossed the
1% global threshold for solar power generation,
there are many hinderances that need to be tackled.
One of the prime issues affecting the output of a
PV cell is dust deposition. Dust accumulation on
the glass surface of the solar panel is becoming a
rising concern of all solar plants around the world.
It involves manual
cleaning of panels with water supported by hand
held equipment such as brushes and squezees.
Dust is in abundance in dry and sunny
regions which are usually more suitable for
solar plants. Smoke from the factories and
vehilces, sand from storms and dry winds,
and bird droppings are the most frequent
sources of the dust and dirt covering
the solar panels. These are very tough to
clean especially bird droppings tend to
form hard sediments when they dry up.
Cleaning these is not at all a simple task.
SPARC is a service which offers crystal clear panels at zero risk of damage to the panels and at highly cost effective subscriptions to clients. The SPARC 1.1 is a user friendly robot which incorporates a motorized glass friendly brush for cleaning. Its robust and light design allows it to be carried to the roof tops effortlessly and operated with ease. Its unique wheels are designed to navigate small gaps between panel arrays and can clean wide spans in one sweep without damaging the panels.
