THE START OF THE RAINY SEASON: HOW WILL IT AFFECT MY SOLAR SYSTEM?

As a tropical country, the Philippines basks in an abundant amount of sunlight and shares 2 weather systems: summer season and the rainy season. Though it is easy and wise to go solar, how does the rain affect your energy harvest during rainy days? What happens to your solar energy system during the wet season?

Continuous rains, continuous production

Solar panels are able to generate energy due to the sunlight that is hitting its surface. Compared to a clear, bright, sunny day that contributes high energy production at its peak, rain reduces solar production due to the limited sunlight available.

Contrary to popular belief that a solar energy system only works when the sun is up, solar panels continue to work during rainy and cloudy days thanks to the reflective or diffused light that can hit its surface. Even though clouds may partially cover the sky, there is still indirect light that may be absorbed by the panels as well as reflection from shiny or lustrous objects or surfaces.

Yes, the power production may be reduced and inconsistent, but it will still work as intended, but will harvest less energy compared to a normal sunny day. No need to fret when the solar is not enough, because a grid tie solar energy system is seamlessly connected to the utility grid. During instances that the solar cannot supply the needed energy for your home or business, the facility will automatically get the electricity from the grid without flipping switches, since it is completely automatic and synchronized. Another factor to keep in mind is the fact that rain also showers and washes away dust and debris that may have accumulated on the solar panels over time. Treat it like a free cleaning coupon or free panel-wash, that nature provides, and will ultimately make your system work more efficiently once the sun shines again.
