Solar Market Outlook in Morocco
Morocco is one of those countries in Africa that is slowly but surely pushing its solar energy efforts through installations of residential and commercial solar PV systems. In fact, Morocco aims for an ambitious 50% renewable energy mix by 2030.
The country is hoping to maximize its access to a rich array of natural resources for renewable energy. With that said, its renewable energy potential is quite high. The 2050 target is very detailed, and even more ambitious – it plans on being 100% renewable. The country is hoping to generate 10.5% of its energy mix from solar plants and 9% from residential rooftop solar panels.
It is also aiming to reach the target of 20% commercial and large scale solar installations. The rest of the energy mix will be generated from renewable sources such as onshore and offshore wind, geothermal, tidal turbines, and hydroelectric sources.
To achieve its ambitious targets, the Moroccan government has created green policies to rapidly increase solar projects and installations. As of 2019, they have reached 736 MW in solar energy production.

What is a Solar Panel Cleaning Equipment?
Solar Panels generate power by absorbing sunlight. The more they absorb the sunlight, the more energy they can produce. But problems with efficiency in power production arise when dust and other impurities get stuck on the surface. These impurities can block the sunlight from reaching the solar cells.
To tackle this issue Solar Panel Cleaning Equipment is used to clean the surface of the panels. This equipment consists of various cleaning agents and cleaning hardware. This equipment is brushed with long handles that have a wider span to clean the farthest part of the panels.
Where is the Panel Cleaning Equipment used?
Panel Cleaning Equipment is mainly used in cleaning the Solar panels. They can be used to clean the rooftop solar panels or panels in solar power plants. Cleaning equipment gives the best results when used regularly as once the dust and mixture start to build on the panels it’s very hard to get rid of.
Types of Panel Cleaning Equipment
Based on the shape and size of the panels and the entire Solar Plant, Solar Panel Cleaning Equipment is categorized into two categories.
- Automatic: Automatic panel cleaning systems are installed in large Solar Plants. There are three types of systems: robots, automatic cleaning and rinsing systems, and cleaning sheets integrated into panels.
- Manual: Manual Solar Panel cleaning kits are available in the market for Solar Roofs.
How does Panel Cleaning Equipment work?
Solar Panel cleaner is applied to the surface of the panels, and a brush is used to clean the dust and stains off. These special Solar Panel cleaning solutions are effective in cleaning bird droppings and hard stains. Also, a proper solution can increase the life of any panel without damaging the surface.
