DOES COLD WEATHER AFFECT YOUR SOLAR SYSTEM?
It¡¯s the holidays and at the same time, the temperature continues to drop. Will it affect the performance of your solar system?
It is the sun¡¯s light

Even during cold seasons including areas that experience winter or snow or rain, your solar system will continue to generate power. This is because solar panels create electricity through the sun¡¯s light and not heat. Probably one of the best advantages of solar power is that it is not affected by the external temperature. In fact, colder temperatures can improve and enhance the performance of your system. In addition to that, too much heat can cause energy losses because hot temperatures, especially during summer, can result in the elevation of electrons¡¯ energy levels. The state of this high energy impedes the production of electricity since the energy is transformed into heat instead of electricity.
External temperatures do not affect the sunlight gathered by the solar panels but it does impact how energy is produced inside the cells. That is why even if there is the same quantity of sunlight, too much heat on the panels can cause drops in energy produced. This is also the reason why cool and colder temperatures can be beneficial to your system.

Solar systems consistently prove themselves as reliable sources of electricity even in extremely cold climates, unless the solar panels are covered in snow ¨C which is not applicable for the Philippines given that it is a tropical country. Rest assured that the cold winds brought to you by this season will not reduce your energy production and will blow away the heat instead to ensure better performance of your system. Owners also do not need to be afraid of strong winds as solar panels can sustain winds of up to 200kph ¨C installed tough only by Solaric.
