Cleaning solar panels improves PV outputs. Many farmers and landowners have installed solar photovoltaic (PV) systems on their barns, fields and houses. Recent reductions in Government incentives have meant a change of focus towards maximising the investment of a solar PV system through good maintenance and servicing, panel washing to improve solar efficiency, and on-farm renewable electricity storage.
Mike Woollacott (Greenwatt Technology), Colin Strong (CMS) and Matt Gellie (Karcher) presented a practical workshop which brought Warwickshire Rural Hub members up to date with the current Feed in Tariff incentive regime – and also introduced new and emerging technologies and systems that will maximise the financial returns for farm solar energy. These included solar panel cleaning; servicing the solar PV system; on-farm storage of renewable electricity, and electric vehicles.
