Solar panels are typically said to last 25 years, but 80% of panels in use beyond the 25 year mark still work. The panels will last a long time, but their rate of energy production might drop over time. As long as they stay within 80% of normal production numbers, you don’t need to replace them.

Solar panels are made of layers of silicone or some other semi-conductive material. 

Solar panels produce the most energy when they face due south. Panels that face southeast or southwest produce solid energy output, but due south is the best.

Your solar panels should be set up away from debris and shade when they are installed, so you shouldn’t have to worry about cleaning your solar panels. At the very most, you should have your panels cleaned once a year by a professional.

The cells in solar panels store the sun’s radiation, so they work in cloudy weather. You can expect panels to operate at roughly 50% of their potential when it’s cloudy.
