Scrobby Solar: Keeping your solar panels clean!
The Scrobby Solar is:
- A robot to keep solar panels clean. You install it once and never look back. Unless you like to see it in action, of course!
- Eco-friendly, using only natural rain water and a specially designed brush to gently scrub your panels clean.
- Self-sufficient. Once installed it doesn't require any external power or water supply. Nature takes care of both power and water.
- Easy. After installation it's just a matter of sitting back, relaxing and enjoying the show. The Scrobby Solar is yours and stays attached to your installation for its entire lifespan.
- Safe. The best way to avoid unsafe situations on your roof is to make sure there is no reason to be there in the first place.
- Affordable, enough so to earn its purchase price back during its lifetime.
