You might be wondering how are solar panels on rainy season. Solar panels still work because solar panels are harvesting sun light and not the heat. Solar panels produce electricity from visible light and infrared light. As long as there is sun light, the solar panels will keep on producing energy. Solar panels are waterproof and moisture definitely won’t damage them.
Visible light is always present during the day even in the midst of strong typhoons. It can penetrate through clouds and rain. Infrared light reach solar panels more effectively because of its longer wavelengths compared to the visible spectrum. In the same principle, we can view and observe distant planets and galaxies even with all space junk and dust in between.
Solar panel also absorb reflected light during rainy season.
There are a lot of reflected light around us. Sun light bounces off the roof tops, tall buildings, and the ground. Light also bounces or reflects on shiny or light-colored surfaces like snow and bodies of water. Solar panels produce less power during rainy season but it won’t totally be zero-production.
is also good for the solar panels. You can treat this as season as cleaning time for your solar panels. You get a free and natural cleaning when it rains. This keeps the panels clear of any dirt or debris which can hinder the production. Dust, bird droppings, pollen, grime, falling leaves and other objects that usually end up on your roofs and panels will be washed away and this will keep the solar panels working efficiently.
Isn’t it just great? Solar power is always available, not just on the summers. It is available and free even on rainy days.
