Obtaining electricity from solar panels, which is one of the renewable energy sources, is very important today.

Obtaining the highest level of energy from solar panels is one of the main issues that researchers focus on. One of

the methods that helps to increase the efficiency of solar panels is panel cleaning. This paper presents a new

approach to increase the efficiency of solar panels. In the study carried out on three solar panels of 10W, one of the

panels is covered with stretch film, another panel is covered with rain-slip solution and the other panel does not

have any coating. These three panels were exposed to the same ambient conditions and efficiency values and

operating parameters were compared
