PV Panel Cleaning Firm Raises Angel Investor Funding


Artificial Intelligence Powered Autonomous Robotic Solar Panel Cleaning Solution Provider Indian Start-Up Skilancer Gets Undisclosed Amount As Alfa Ventures Funding: Media

An Indian start-up incubated at Indian Institute of Management Lucknow that provides artificial intelligence powered autonomous robots to clean solar panels has secured investment from angel investor Dhianu Das’s Alfa Ventures. The proprietary fund makes seed investments in start-ups.

Skilancer Solar Pvt. Ltd., the beneficiary start-up will use the undisclosed amount to upgrade its design and technology while also building its team and expand geographically, reported local media.

Robotic cleaning solutions do away with the need to use water for solar panel cleaning while at the same time the technology is touted to make manual cleaning procedures redundant. A quick solution, it also saves power generation losses expected because of dirt deposits on the panel surface.

Skilancer says it uses 4 direct drive motors on the entire assembly and that the system runs directly on the array frame structure with no load bearing on the panels or their frames, as per information shared on the company website.

Skilancer will have to compete with Israel based solar PV panel cleaning technology provider Ecoppia that moved to India with a manufacturing facility in Chennai in 2016 to capture market share in one of the largest solar markets in the world.
