Did you know that solar panels produce more energy in the summer than in the winter?
Winter vs Summer
Shorter days in the winter→ less daylight hours→ less energy is produced
In addition to less sunlight, the sun is lower in the sky during winter. This means that the rays of the sun will be hitting the panels less directly than during the summer months.
Winter weather and cloud cover: energy is still produced when it is cloudy, but it produces less energy than if it was a sunny, clear day. Also, if there is enough snow buildup, it can block the sun until it is cleared.
Solar panels will produce more energy in the summer because there are more hours of sunlight each day, and the sun is higher in the sky.
