Sol Clarity brings a unique and exciting approach to the often overlooked field of solar panel cleaning and maintenance. Our technology, the Electrodynamic Screen (EDS) offers on-demand, fully automated cleaning involving no moving parts, no water, and no manual labor! Sol Clarity is a spin-off from Boston University, where the EDS technology was originally developed to mitigate soiling on Mars rovers, but has now come down to earth. We are a young startup looking to add highly motivated members to our growing team as we expand and develop our exciting electrostatic force field technology!
