How Do Cloudy Days Affect Solar Panel Performance?
When the sun is hiding, homeowners stop to think: will my house lose its power?
Even when the weather is overcast, sunlight is still peaking through the clouds. Which means yes, solar power does work even during cloudy days.
Your solar panels are still generating electricity to keep your house powered.
However, the performance of your solar panels drop by 10% to 15% compared to an average sunny day. This depends on the quality of your solar panels.
At Solaready, we install premium Panasonic products to help your solar roof power through the rainy season in the Philippines.
How do Solar Panels work on Overcast Days?
The Philippines has a bounty of sunny days during the dry season.
During this time, your solar roof is taking advantage of the weather. The Solar PV panels convert sunlight to direct current (DC) and then an inverter turns it into alternating current (AC), which is the type of power most houses run on.
During the summer, where your solar system produces far more electricity than you need, the AC power then goes back to the grid to be used by the utility, which in many areas offers the homeowner a credit via net metering.
You can rest easy knowing your solar panels are working hard to power your home.
If you want to improve your solar roof this rainy season, Solaready PH is here to upgrade your panels anytime.
