The adoption of green energy sources like solar power continues to rise due to price hikes for electricity and have implications about the environmental effects of fossil fuels. Natural occurrences, such as the build-up of dust on installed photovoltaic panels’ surfaces, tend to lower their electrical output, which in turn lowers their efficiency. Cleaning products are hence essential for increasing solar panels’ effectiveness. Cleaning panels by hand is pricey and ineffective. A prototype of solar panel cleansing mechanism has been presented in this paper and the enhanced output power after its implementation has been recorded. This strategy seeks to increase the effectiveness of by removing any kind of dust on solar cells. The proposed work includes a cloud server that uses the internet of things (IoT) to provide global live status monitoring. It can be entirely automated by the assistance of robotics and the Internet of Things. A mechanised cleaning system is more effective and uses less water. The unit can function both directly and electronically owing to sensors, microcontrollers, and other components.
