WHAT HAPPENS TO SOLAR PANELS WHEN IT RAINS?

Is going solar a smart move?

Is going solar a smart move

In the tropical country of the Philippines, it is easy to see and understand why going solar is a smart move and a wise investment. The question that always surfaces is straightforward and simple: what about the rainy days? How does rain affect the solar panels in the Philippines? What about clouds? Does solar work on cloudy days?

 

All about the energy output

Solar energy output is indeed affected by various factors, and this includes variations in weather and climate. On a clear, bright, sunny day in the Philippines, the system’s power graph forms a bell curve. Highest energy production typically happens around noon, when the sun is brightest. These are the times when the solar panels operate most efficiently.

 

Now, what about the cloudy days and the rainy days?

Now, what about the cloudy days and the rainy days

On the other hand, during cloudy days, solar panels in the Philippines still do work – since the rays of the sun still find their way to shine through the clouds and the rain. However, since sunlight is limited, then it follows that energy production is limited as well. The actual amount of electricity generated during such days is dependent on the density of cloud coverage. Thus, the solar panel system’s production is not as consistent and considerably reduced during cloudy days and rainy days.

 

Can battery storage help me during the rainy days?

Batteries can be the option where you can store energy and use power during less productive periods or power outages, and that includes even night time. That way, you can you more of the power you generate from your solar panel system. Batteries, however, are expensive and deteriorate quickly when they are “cycled” often – which means when you power them up then drained them. The life cycle of batteries is 5 to 10 years. It is best to consult solar experts to determine the best options for you, and if battery storage is ideal for your setup.
