Solar Market Outlook in Palestine
The lack of availability in natural resources, financial crisis, and unstable political conditions affect the energy sector in Palestine. Therefore, 100% of its energy production is reliant on imported fossil fuels. The high population growth rate and rapid industrialization also contribute to the challenges faced by the energy sector.
The tremendous level of energy demand in Palestine has taken its toll on the economy. In fact, the cost of electricity in Palestine is a lot higher than its neighboring Middle East countries.
These factors have pushed the Palestine government to evaluate the potential of renewable energy sources such as solar to maintain a sustainable energy future. The 3000 sunshine hours per year experienced in Palestine delivers high solar power potential. The staggering amount of sunlight is an opportunity to exploit it to generate solar energy for various applications.
The Gaza Electricity Distribution Company has spearheaded the installation of solar PVs in the country when it developed connected rooftop solar systems for up to 1,000 consumers in the Gaza strip. This installation generated 1 MW of power. There are wider initiatives being eyed in an effort to make solar installations more accessible to everyone and to combat the ongoing energy crisis in Palestine.
Solar Energy Equipment Supply Capacity in Palestine
Palestine is unable to produce its own solar power equipment to date. Therefore, any solar PV systems currently in place are generated through global and online suppliers or distributors.
Top Major Seaports & Logistics in Palestine
Palestine has access to ports for logistics, trade, and commercial activity. When it comes to transporting solar equipment, there are major ports that can service Palestine such as the Port of Gaza.

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.
