We provide robots for cleaning solar panels; commercial and industrial to utility scale installations.
We provide specialized engineering services and design optimum solar panel cleaning systems.
Solar panels are an excellent investment but demand maintenance just like any machine. All panels need a be clean to produce energy. It’s a simple task, but not necessarily easy. Each installation is unique and not all robots work on all installations. Choosing the right robot increases your productivity and decreases cleaning complexity and costs significantly.
Our Smart & Automated Solar Panel Cleaning Solutions cover:

Engineers and architects dedicated to optimal solar panel performance
These installations demand more sophisticated robot-cleaning systems with wet and/or dry cleaning, robust brushes, automation, tractor mounting options, and more. Each utility scale installation is unique and big. Cleaning a 100 MW plant requires solar panel cleaning engineers to develop low cost and effective solutions. On utility scale installations, cleaning represents 14 – 25% of the O&M costs.
The accumulation of dust, soot, or other particulates causes a drop in the efficiency of photovoltaic (PV) panels, which translates to a decline in the amount of power produced and lost income for their operators. But cleaning these solar panels carries a cost as well.
According to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), the energy lost can result in performance loss levels of 0.5% to 1.5% per day
The cost of performance loss is real however the cost of cleaning is also significant. It costs us money to be dirty.
We should clean when the cost to do so is less than the energy loss from being dirty.
Using the right robots is one part of the equation but the other part is designing the right solar panel cleaning system for your utility scale solar installation.
Robots optimized for commercial and industrial installations provide higher cleaning speeds than residential robots, with quick assembly. Commercial and industrial robots must be OSHO compliant to reduce employer liability and be extremely productive to help businesses be more competitive.
We recommend that new up and coming utility scale solar installations design for low cost O&M and for existing solar installations we recommend in bringing the cost of O&M down by implementing smart solar panel cleaning systems.
Key factors include:
Cleaning systems for utility scale installations is a very complex and important part of solar park operations and maintenance. The wrong robot will increase O&M complexity and costs.
We’ll help you choose the system that suits your needs.
Commercial and industrial solar panel installations tend to be larger and more complex than residential installations, which require different cleaning robots to maximize efficiency.
Key features of these robots are:
Not all machines hit those marks, but we offer multiple options and we’ll help you choose the system that works for you.
Solar installations are projected to grow over 320 giga watts in the United States in the next 10 years. If you can perform more work each day, you’ll see profitability increase, and the right machines will help you do that.
You’ll find many choices, and Relysm can help. We are experts in solar energy systems and are authorized dealers for multiple high-quality robot-cleaning systems. We’ll help you choose the best robot application for your system.
Panel-cleaning robots vary greatly in their features and capabilities, so we’ll evaluate the following demands in helping you choose a system:
Solar panels can be effectively cleaned with both wet and dry cleaning. The method used depends on the climate and type of dirt/soiling on the panels.
Some installations, in arid areas for example, can be thoroughly dry-cleaned with brushes; no water or other cleaning solvent is necessary. Arid areas most often require this type of cleaning, and frequency of cleaning needed depends on the local conditions.
Panels soiled with bird dropping and tree sap, in contrast, usually require wet cleaning. A pre-treatment may be necessary before the robots are put to work and this also depends on the local conditions.
The amount of rainfall on the panels is a major factor in their cleanliness and efficiency, but panels in all climates require regular cleaning, with wet or dry. Relysm offers systems that can handle both types of cleaning.
Relysm is an official distributor for multiple systems for cleaning photovoltaic panels. We also provide parts and service for all systems we sell. We help train your staff as well.
We researched the entire market of solar panel cleaning robots and chose the best for cost, durability, and features.
We’re a team of architects and engineers with deep knowledge of photovoltaic systems, and solar panel cleaning systems.
Accomplish optimal solar performance and ROI by working with the right methodology and right team.
