So yesterday I cleaned the windows for a guy who also has 136 solar panels on his roof. Each panel is 2 X 5 ft. You can clearly see them on Google Maps. They are covered in dirt, and I thought I'd offer to clean them.
I've never cleaned solar panels before but I didn't want to miss out on the opportunity. I have a subcontractor who has cleaned some solar panels, but never as many as these.
Anyway, long story short, when I told my client I could clean his solar panels he was very happy. Now he wants to set an appointment for me to clean them next week. I just need to give him an estimate for the work.
The house is three stories, and as you can see the solar panels are really close together leaving little room to maneuver. Not to mention that Pleasanton, CA is hell on earth right now - 117 degrees in the sun yesterday - so it won't be a cool job.
So I have two questions:
1) How much would you charge per panel? I'm thinking $5 a panel.
2) How would you tackle this job? I'm assuming a WFP is the way to go, but I don't have one. Do you know where I can rent one?
Any help is much appreciated.
