Will solar panels still generate electricity in winter?


Many people have a common misunderstanding, that is, solar panels do not work in winter. On the contrary, low temperature will increase the output power of solar panels. However, the solar panels are covered by snow in winter, which will indeed affect the power generation.
All solar panels can bear a certain weight, and the average snow is not too heavy to cause problems. Before the solar panels leave the factory, they will undergo a stress test to evaluate the durability and quality level. The higher the stress level, the better your panel can withstand the weight of heavy snow.

Solar panels need sunlight to generate electricity, so if your solar panels are covered in snow, they won't generate electricity. Most components are installed at a certain angle of inclination, and the snow will fall on its own, but it takes a certain amount of time. You can also clean the snow by making a snow rake (soft) or similar snow removal tools, which usually do not damage the battery panels.
Low temperature, sunny weather is actually beneficial to module power generation. As long as the components are not covered by snow, winter is actually conducive to power generation. Like most electronic products, solar panels are more efficient in cold conditions than in hot conditions, making full use of every hour to generate electricity during the relatively short period of daytime in winter.
In winter, the power generation of photovoltaic power plants is reduced, so there is no need to be nervous. This is a normal phenomenon, because the length of sunshine in winter is reduced. However, due to the low temperature in winter, it is conducive to photovoltaic power generation and also plays a good role in protecting the service life. In addition, it is necessary to pay attention to the maintenance and maintenance of the power station in winter, and pay attention to cleaning up dust and snow.
