Can The Solar Panels Stand Up To Mother Natures Sand Storms?

This video shows amazing footage of a sandstorm engulfing Phoenix, Arizona this month. Arizona has been a showcase for solar power. It is the home of Solar One, the nation's largest solar panel manufacturing company.

Experts are saying that the dust from the storms like these are just a temporary incident that is often taken care of by rain storms that generally follow these dust storms. In researching this story, I found it interesting to note that there is a recommended maintenance for solar panels. Another interesting comment was that city water can leave a residue on the panels from the mineral deposits. Read the article I found most informative Huff Post.
