From solving the problems of inefficient dusty solar mirrors and unstable transmission access roads to ash tailings and windmill slope erosion, Soilworks is known for its dependable ability to solve difficult soil stabilization and dust control challenges. We provide our expertise to the world’s leading traditional and alternative energy organizations.
What’s the biggest threat to photovoltaic panels?
Dust. The accumulation of dust particles on the panels can greatly reduce the efficiency of the panels. In fact, one study showed that accumulated dust on the surface of photovoltaic solar panels could reduce a system’s efficiency by up to 50 percent.

Dust control plays a large role in the efficient production of solar energy. In fact, accumulated dust on the surface of photovoltaic solar panels can reduce the system’s efficiency by up to 50 percent. Soilworks products can keep productivity up by keeping dust down.
Slope erosion can be a major concern for alternative energy companies if they’re not controlling the rate of erosion with Soilworks products. Mitigating slope erosion is possible if soils are properly treated and maintained. Our soil stabilization experts can help.
The stability of access roads for transmission lines can be the difference between a city having power or not. If technicians can’t access transmission lines via stable, predictable road conditions, the ability to maintain and repair transmission lines becomes much harder.
With coal generating >40% of all U.S. electricity alone, controlling dust from its ash is paramount to air quality and worker safety. Soilworks daily job is to improve coal fired power plants and their working conditions through the use of our industry leading dust control and soil stabilization solutions.
Large power plants depend on Soiltac to stabilize construction pads for improved strength, erosion control and dust suppression.
Wind farms use Soiltac to seal and protect roads for transporting turbines and service vehicles over the dusty and unstable roads.
Solar parks depend on Soiltac to control dust from depositing on the solar panels to maintain efficiency of their power stations.
Without treating dirt surfaces with Soiltac, solar panels can loose up to 50% of their efficiency from unwanted dust accumulation.
Photovoltaic power stations prevent dust buildup on their solar panels by treating their entire solar park's soil with Soiltac.
Vast networks of critical electrical transmission lines are easily serviced and accessed by roads protected with Soiltac copolymer.
Large power companies including Arizona's APS and SRP depend on Soiltac to protect their unpaved gravel roads from dust and erosion.
The dependable and verified strength of Soiltac is clearly demonstrated by its ability to stabilize desert blow sand roads in UAE.
To eliminate expensive solar mirror cleaning to maintain efficiency, solar parks use Soiltac to cap and seal their entire sites.
Power companies protect their plants, transfer stations & transmission line access roads with Soiltac copolymer dust control agent.
