What Does the Weather Do to Solar Panels?

Many solar panel installers are often asked how weather affects their solar panels. Here are the top five ways weather can affect a solar panel’s performance.

Cold Weather

Exposure to ultraviolet rays can affect the performance of solar cells in cold conditions. The panel will produce more energy if the sun shines on it, but this is not always true in colder months.

High Winds

Solar panels are built with toughness in the mind. If necessary, most solar panels can withstand a hurricane. Solar panels can withstand tropical storms with rigorous testing. However, they will need to be inspected after storms to ensure that they are in good condition and remove any debris.

Hail and debris

Your solar panels will withstand severe weather conditions such as hail and debris. The panels are not fragile, so even if they get hit with hail or debris, they will still be able to withstand. The newest solar panels are durable and will last in any weather condition.
