South-faced plants with a slope of 35-45�...
Maintenance of Building-Integrated Solar Panels
Solar panels are almost maintenance free.There are no moving parts in the system that would need direct maintenance. In the spring, after the snow has melted and the plants and trees have been pollinated, dirt may cover the panels.It would be prudent to remove tree leaves and branches from the panel...
