With the storms ongoing, you might be thinking “will the rain affect my solar system?”
This is a popular misconception. Your solar panels will still continue to produce electricity even in the most freezing weather. In fact, the cooler the temperature, the better for your solar panels compared to warm and scorching heat during the summer. Yes, your solar panels perform at their maximum at lower temperatures with bright sun.
The simple explanation for this is because solar panels create electricity from the sun’s light and not heat. Although solar and heat seem to be a likely pair, heat in fact can reduce the electricity production of solar panels because they increase the electron’s energy levels thus the high energy transfers into heat instead of electricity and interferes with electricity production causing what you call a “heat loss”.
What matters is on the inside
Even exposed to the same amount of sunlight, too much heat on the solar panels will cause drops in the energy produced. External temperatures do not affect the sunlight gathered by the solar panels but it does impact how energy is produced inside the cells. Colder temperature promotes better energy production that can par with the lesser daylight hours in winter solstice. Rest assured that you should not be afraid and anxious of the cold winds, instead, they will benefit you by blowing away the heat and ensure a higher efficiency and better performance of your solar system.
