I Clean Solar has turned 1!
It truly is hard to believe just how much the opinion of solar panel owners has changed in the last 12 months! When we first decided to start a solar panel cleaning business, we were told by everyone that we were crazy! People were saying things like, “solar panels are self cleaning”, “nobody will want to pay to have there solar panels cleaned” and my personal favourite, “the rain cleans solar panels for you”. Despite all of the negative comments, we stuck to our I Clean Solar plan and I am incredibly happy we did. We researched the best way to clean solar panels without voiding their warranty, found the best system to get it done, and opened our doors and I Clean Solar was born. We started off slowly, running part time while working full time for others until demand grew, then 4 months ago we went full time! The opinion of solar panel owners was starting to change as their energy bills started increasing. Being able to provide a service to people that actually MAKES more money for them in the long run, is actually really exciting for us.
As of this week, we have cleaned over 300 solar panel systems, or roughly 4800 solar panels! Due to the complexity of solar systems it is hard to say just how much money our service has saved from peoples energy bills, but my guess is the figure would be HUGE!
Our success has been the result of many things, from radio advertising on River 94.9 and 98.9FM, newspaper ads in the Queensland Times and Ipswich Advertiser, Google, Facebook and most importantly of all, word of mouth from our satisfied customers, friends and family(who I would like to thank so much for spreading the word and sharing every post we put on Facebook) As I am typing this, we have 42 “5 Star” reviews on Facebook and an average rating of “4.9 Stars” on Google. We are humbled by the REAL reviews, and also very proud.
In year 2 of I Clean Solar, we will be introducing solar panel owners to the very best bird proofing option for people with pigeon problems. We will also be looking to employ and expand as demand is growing at a crazy rate. If you are a customer reading this I would like to thank you for supporting our little family business. If you aren’t a customer, feel free to check us out on our website or Facebook page.
Thank you everyone,
