It is officially the rainy season, and one of the common questions we typically encounter during this period is how does solar work during bad weather and how does it affect my system?
In a nutshell
Even during heavy rain, the rain itself doesn’t have any effect on your solar panels, but the solar power system will definitely harvest less, versus harvest on a bright sunny day. Lower harvest means low energy production, usually between 10-25%. Contrary to popular belief that your system does not produce power during rainy days, the reality is, in fact, that light can still pass and bounce through clouds and reflect on your solar panels to produce energy.
One other thing – Rain is actually perfect for the panels. Why? The rain serves as a natural ‘car wash’ for your solar panels. The rain helps wash off any dirt, dust and debris such as bird manure, that may have accumulated over time which can affect your daily energy production if left on the solar panels.
Solar panels are designed and manufactured to be waterproof and moisture proof. They undergo various laboratory tests and are built to withstand different and severe weather conditions. This is why it is important to only purchase and install high quality equipment from trustworthy, reputable suppliers and Tier1 brands. Solar panels should last and perform for 25 years – or even more.
Solaric solar power systems are strictly designed and installed with premium quality solar equipment and materials. We make it our top priority to make sure that the installed rooftop solar system can sustain up to 250kph of winds, especially since we live in a tropical country like the Philippines where there are at least a minimum of 20 typhoons per year.
