EXTERNAL FACTORS THAT AFFECT THE PERFORMANCE OF YOUR SOLAR SYSTEM

To get the most out of your solar energy system, it is best to take note of some of the factors that limit its maximum potential. Some factors can be controlled and avoided right at the project planning stage or beginning of PV installation. Some, however, are completely inevitable. Planning ahead and raising some of these concerns to your solar provider will help you look for considerable solutions that may save you from future headaches and aid you in the long run.

Shading

Shading

Shading in solar panels can be cause huge energy dropouts. This can properly be avoided if we make sure that the solar panels are free from any roof obstructions or shading. If the cause of shading is unavoidable such as nearby buildings, engineers may relocate your solar panels or ask you to remove the object that causes shading such as branches or trees.

Hot temperatures

Being near the equator means that we are blessed by abundant solar energy but at the same time, we experience very hot weather especially during the peak summer months. Hot temperatures are not good for your solar energy system as they can cause heat loss. Remember that the solar panels harvest sunlight and not heat. All solar panels can suffer a temporary efficiency drop on higher temperatures but monocrystalline solar panels are more efficient and less affected by the heat compared to polycrystalline.

Cloudy and rainy weather

Cloudy and rainy weather

Not every day is a sunny day and although the Philippines does not experience snow, rainy days and cloudy weather can greatly affect your system’s harvest on the entire duration. This is another factor where monocrystalline solar panels become a big advantage as it can still perform better compared to its counterpart even in low-light situations. Even if the sky is cloudy, some light still bounces and gets reflected on your solar panels.

System degradation

As time passes, your solar energy system will gradually decrease in its performance. A typical Solaric grid tie system has a 25-year power output guarantee and by that time, the system has fully paid off itself. Observing by yourself, coordinating well with your solar provider and proper care and maintenance to make sure that your system is well maintained and in top shape, will surely prolong your solar energy system’s lifespan.
