CLEANER SOLAR ENERGY WITH SOLARBRUSH



SOLARBRUSH is a robotic cleaning system for solar power plants. Cleaning of solar panels is important as they lose efficiency due to deposits, such as sand and dust. Huge layers of sand on the panels lower the output in many regions, according to studies about 30% of energy is lost in a single month in arid regions. The same problem applies to mirrors used in solar towers CSP technology.

The SOLABRUSH robot walks on solar panels with a high inclination of up to 35 degrees. The robot is light weight and wireless as it carries a rechargeable and replaceable battery. Either one or more robots can be placed on separate arrays to clean the solar panels as they have the capability to move from one panel to another.

SOLARBRUSH has been designed to meet both the needs of customers and service personnel. With consistent research and development we evolved the system to the cleaning of PV panels in dry regions all over the world. It is probably the most easy to use robotic cleaning system for solar panels as it only has one switch. > more

IMPACT

SOLARBRUSH contributes on many levels: faster amortization, easing labor conditions and saving of sweet water. The design for arid region supports a proper cost benefit ratio. > more


INSIGHT


Manufacturers of solar panels used to claim that there was no need for cleaning. This has been debunked by several studies. There is a diverse approach to tackle the problem.
