Trina Solar certifies Ecoppia for water-free robotic PV cleaning

Ecoppia, a developer of robotic, water-free solar PV panel cleaning solutions has announced that its E4 robotic cleaning system has been certified for long-term use by Trina Solar.
Trina Solar certifies Ecoppia for water-free robotic PV cleaning

Trina Solar is the latest company to validate E4’s performance following previous certification by panel producers JA Solar and Suntech, as well as by the independent PV technology testing laboroatory Photovoltaik Institut Berlin (PI Berlin). Additional certifications are underway in order to ensure Ecoppia's market–wide compliance with the stringent standards of all major panel manufacturers.

The E4 system removes solar panel dust through a daily, automated operation. Each robot is programmed through a real-time, web-based dashboard that enables remote management and monitoring to aid system owners in achieving optimal energy production levels at all times. At present, up to 35 percent of the loss in energy production from solar PV panels is caused by soiling.

“Earning the trust of a respected organization like Trina Solar is further confirmation that our E4 system is the future in solar panel cleaning” said Eran Meller, CEO of Ecoppia. “We have designed the only solution that delivers immediate value and rapid ROI, all while protecting the most expensive component in a PV plant—the panels themselves.” 

Trina Solar certified Ecoppia's solution based on extensive simulation, which tested the equivalent of 20 years of daily cleaning, following which no impact on panels was noted. This certification clears the way for the Ecoppia system to be installed on Trina Solar panel arrays worldwide.
