CleanFizz has taken on the challenge to make the solar world even more sustainable.

Cleaning sand, dust and snow off solar panels and other surfaces is one of the great tasks facing the world today. CleanFizz has developed the most efficient solution to address sand and snow cleaning off solar panel surfaces and others. Our unique technology applies an active electrostatic field on the surfaces and repels the sand off them even when they are positioned horizontally.

This self-cleaning technology produces heat on the surfaces of panels and others in order to melt snow in cold regions. CleanFizz’ self-cleaning technology can be powered directly from a PV solar panel using less than 10% of power produced during a maximum time of 30 seconds. Otherwise, an external power source such as battery or direct from the grid is needed to power the self-cleaning system.
