Self-Cleaning Solar Panels

Solar PiezoClean solves the dust collection problem by making the solar panel self-cleaning without using water. A transparent Piezoelectric film is installed on top of solar PV panel, and whenever the dust sensor at the solar farm senses dust collection, it sends a signal to the main controller in which it trigger the Piezofilm with the needed frequency and pitch that makes it vibrate, taking all the dust off the panels using gravity.
