There is about 15 solar panel cleaning robotic manufacturers on the market and each installation is unique and not every robot works on every installation. However that being said, here is a quick list of values. Commercial and Industrial Solar Panel Cleaning Robots cost about USD $20,000 – USD $50,000 Utility Scale solar panel cleaning robots cost about USD $20,000 – USD $75,000 The cost of a solar panel cleaning robot should be analyzed by comparing its cost to its productivity rate and the cost of spare parts. Many robots on the market have high “wear & tear” expenses and low upfront costs.

Top supplier of solar robotic cleaning systems in the USA
While there is about 15 solar panel cleaning robotic manufacturers in the market worldwide few are actually servicing the US market. www.soilar.tech services the US market and offer solar panel cleaning robots for the commercial & Industrial and utility-scale segment. Their product line can clean just about any solar panel installation and at the lowest cost.
Can solar panel cleaning be automated and if so how?
Solar panel cleaning can be automated to a certain degree. Commercial and Industrial solar installations can be cleaned by solar panel cleaning robots that are operated by a person. This person uses a remote control to direct the robot over the panels. With utility-scale installations, you can use a robot that goes back and forth across the array but needs operator assistance.
Should PV soiling mitigation be part of the solar plant design phase?
Yes! Solar plants that are being designed should analyze how they are going to be cleaned. Utility-scale developers like CSG include these concepts and more in the design phase.
