Global Solar Panel Cleaning Equipment Market: Introduction

A solar panel or photovoltaic solar panel absorbs energy from the sun and generates electricity to be used in end-use industries. A solar panel consists of a number of solar cells. These panels need to be cleaned for their proper functioning. In regions with heavy rainfall, solar panel cleaning can be deferred; but in dry regions, solar panel cleaning is indispensable. Solar panel cleaning equipment players have developed various products for efficient cleaning of these systems.

Global Solar Panel Cleaning Equipment Market: Competition Landscape

Heliotex LLC

Heliotex LLC was established in 2008 in Palm Desert, California, the U.S. The company has developed an automatic solar panel cleaning system for the residential and commercial sector, and for small and medium enterprises (SMEs). The company installs nozzles to a solar panel. Water containing soap comes out automatically from these nozzles and rinses the solar panel. Thus, the company uses a water based cleaning system to clean the solar panels. The company operates within the U.S. and North America region.

Ecoppia

Ecoppia is a solar panel cleaning company based in Herzlia, Israel. The company specializes in using a fleet of automatic robots for cleaning photovoltaic solar panels. The company cleans the solar panels without water and uses microfiber and air to clean the panels. These robots use five motors for cleaning the solar panels. Two electric motors move in a horizontal direction, parallel to the row of the solar panel; another two electric motors move in a vertical up and down direction, and another motor rotates 360 degree with the microfiber elements. The company has focused on India to locally manufacture robotic solar panel cleaning equipment for the burgeoning photovoltaic solar panel system installations in India.  

Alfred Kärcher SE & Co. KG

Alfred Kärcher SE & Co. KG is a global family-run cleaning company based in Winnenden, Germany. The company operates more than 120 companies across 70 countries, employing 13,027 people. The company was founded in 1935 by Alfred Karcher. The company offers photovoltaic solar panel equipment such as brushes (iSolar 400 and iSolar 800) that use water at high pressure to clean the photovoltaic solar panels. The brushes operate at low pressure to avoid damage to the solar modules. Alfred Kärcher SE & Co. KG uses brushes to manually clean solar photovoltaic solar panels.

Global Solar Panel Cleaning Equipment Market: Dynamics

Increasing penetration of solar energy in India increasing the demand for solar panel equipment

India is seeing rise in demand for solar energy. The Government of India has set a goal to achieve 100 GW (gigawatt) of solar energy by 2022. This has encouraged global solar panel cleaning equipment manufacturer, Ecoppia to set up local production of robotic solar panel cleaning systems with Sanmina, a Fortune 500 company. Thus, rise in penetration along with installation of photovoltaic solar panels in India is increasing the demand for solar panel cleaning systems. Demand for solar panel cleaning systems is expected to rise across South Asia and other Asia Pacific countries.
