Not every day is a sunny day. With rainy days coming, how is my solar system affected and should I be worried? Read on to learn more about using solar panels during rainy days!
Rain washes your panels
You might have noticed the continuous rains lately and even PAGASA has warned us that frequent heavy to moderate rains are expected, especially now that the country is already under the rainy season. Common questions we always get from the solar homeowner: should I be worried about the rainy season and how it affects my rooftop solar?
When it rains, the solar production is reduced due to the limited sunlight. If you have a grid tie system, your solar is seamless connected to the grid, which means if your solar can’t supply the needed energy, you will automatically get your electricity from the grid without flipping switches – since it’s automatically synchronized!
Contrary to popular belief that a solar system only works when the sun is up and shining, the truth is that using your solar panels during rainy days and cloudy days is possible. However, the solar system harvests less energy, therefore producing less power than it normally would on a bright and sunny day.
Rain showering down on your rooftop solar is like a free cleaning coupon from nature. The rain washes away dust and debris that usually accumulates on your solar panels over time. After this panel washing, your system will work more efficiently and effectively!
Batteries can be your backup
Aside from covering your consumption during daytime, you also have the option to add batteries to your system for further energy security. Your solar panels can charge batteries during the day and you can use the energy stored during nighttime or blackouts. Batteries are expensive and need to be replaced when it reached its maximum life cycle. Make sure to decide whether you are more inclined towards savings or towards energy security. Consult the solar experts to know what is the best option for you.
