Does your solar system generate power when it is cloudy, raining, or snowing?

 

A common misconception about solar panels is that they produce insufficient energy bad weather. Does your solar system generate power when it is cloudy, raining, or snowing? Solar panels still produce energy even if it is cloudy, raining or snowing. Of course, snow will reduce solar energy output, but over the long term, the energy you lose will be very minimal.

Clouds may block sun's rays during bad weather. The good thing is, solar panels are powered by light, not by heat.

Fair to bad weather will not severely affect solar system’s power generating capabilities.

Solar panels are still working even when it’s cloudy because ultraviolet rays penetrate clouds and reach the earth’s surface. The panels can also adequately convert a portion of that UV light into electricity.

Ever wonder why you still need to use sunscreen on cloudy days? That is because UV rays can still penetrate the clouds and reach the Earth’s surface. That same concept applies to solar panels. It is also important to remember that most of the sunlight comes during the summer; days are longer and the sun’s energy is more concentrated. This will make us generate more power and prepare us during the “rainy days”.
