In this paper, the problem of dependence of a state of solar modules’ surface on the external environmental conditions: dust, precipitation, sand, pollen of plants, various technical suspensions in megacities is investigated. It is concluded that such an impact significantly reduces the efficiency of solar installations and leads to a decrease in electricity generation and the using of famous technologies for cleaning solar panels is associated with the attracting human resources and leads to increasing costs. An overview of possible methods and devices for solving this problem is given. The use of processes of electron-ion technology for the protection of solar modules from pollution is proposed, the theoretical justification of this method and the prospects for its use are presented. The main forces acting on a dust particle in an electric field during its deposition are considered. The cleaning technology developed does not require large investments, maintenance and does not pollute the environment with harmful chemicals.
