Photovoltaic panels lack efficiency from adequate cleaning of sand, dirt, and other deterrents from outside exposer on the panels. I set out to explore how energy generated from solar panels can be increased. A simple, effective solution I propose is a pokeweed berry base solution. This solution applied directly to the panel can enhance the sun light collecting surface, increase efficiency. The conclusion of this research projected can result in an increased power, and efficiency. Thanks to Alliance for Physics Excellence (APEX) for their support of this research.
