crs:
Site is utility owned, and as far as I know, the panels are utility owned.

System is considered a generation unit, as no usage is at site.

Previous life was a gas plant, now a 'brownfield converted to something useful'.

Site still has many active natural gas mains, and is classified as a 'no-dig' area.

This pic is a partial shot of the north section.

Do they routinely clean the panels, or do they rely on mother nature?

Larry:
This is a new install, and it's not 'on-line' as of yet.

With the angle mount, mother nature should help.

Another job (rooftop) nearby has a 'bird' issue with gulls from an abandoned landfill, and another landfill accross the river. They have a maint guy do a hose down about every 2 weeks, and a contractor to low pressure washdown quarterly, or more often if needed.

Perhaps, this could be the start of a new cottage industry? Like 'Harrys Panel Wash'?
