It's Time To Clean Me...  Solar That Talks!

This technology makes any solar panel talk to the ANEW Energy open-source mobile app. Solar panels have 2 problems. First, panels only make power during the day and second, when they get dirty, the energy generation is reduced. The ANEW onboard electronics senses panel cleanliness, temp, CO2/NOX gases, along with many open I/O channels. Your solar panel becomes a perch where drones get charged and provide cleaning services. This technology is designed to connect to any standard MC4 solar cabling
