Posted By: GotanewlifeYes I remember when last year I raised here the issue of my PV panels not performing as well as I expected in high summer and suggesting an automated watering/cleaning solution a couple of people pointed out that the risks and unintended consequences would outweigh any benefits. Right now though I do seem to have a little spare capacity so I might just do some experimentation myself. I only have one inverter for my 2 string 5kW system so one-sided cleaning not an option.My panels are mounted in a dip in the roof so as to be the same hight as the surrounding tiless but with a good 40mm gap underneath and are mounted tight so I should be getting signification ventilation currents from the hot air rising albeit only up a 15 deg slope. Ambient shaded air temp high summer is often 35 deg so 60 deg on the panels a very real possibility!
