Ecoppia's Robotic, Water-free Solar Panel Cleaning System Receives Global Certification from Trina Solar

With more than 6 million panels cleaned, the E4 solution significantly and cost-effectively improves solar plant output

HERZELIYA, ISRAEL – March 10, 2015 – Ecoppia, an innovative developer of robotic, water-free photovoltaic (PV) solar panel cleaning solutions, announced today that its E4 robotic cleaning solution has been officially certified for long-term use by Trina Solar, a global leader in PV modules, solutions and services. Trina Solar is the latest to validate E4's performance, with previous certification by panel producers JA Solar and Suntech, as well as by the Photovoltaik Institut Berlin (PI Berlin), one of the world's most respected independent PV technology testing laboratories. Additional certifications are underway, with the aim of ensuring Ecoppia's market–wide compliance with the stringent standards of all major panel manufacturers


Ecoppia's patented E4 system cost-effectively removes 99 percent of solar panel dust through a daily, automated operation. Each robot is programmed through a real-time, web-based dashboard that enables remote management and monitoring to aid system owners in achieving optimal energy production levels at all times. With up to 35 percent loss in energy production caused by soiling, Ecoppia provides a profitable cleaning solution for solar panels without wasting valuable water resources.

"Earning the trust of a respected organization like Trina Solar is further confirmation that our E4 system is the future in solar panel cleaning," said Eran Meller, CEO of Ecoppia. "We have designed the only solution that delivers immediate value and rapid ROI, all while protecting the most expensive component in a PV plantthe panels themselves."
Trina Solar certified Ecoppia's solution based on extensive simulation, which tested the equivalent of 20 years of daily cleaning, following which no impact on panels was noted. This certification clears the way for the Ecoppia system to be installed on Trina Solar panel arrays worldwide.
