Solar panels work on optimum productivity on clear days with abundant sunshine. But, do solar panels work in cloudy weather? Yes… just not quite as well on a cloudy day, solar panels can produce 10-25% of their rated capacity.
Shading analysis is one of the most important steps taken before installation of the solar panels. With solar panels, it is important to take into account the objects in surrounding areas which are casting a shadow on the panels,
Solar panels are made of highly excitable, conductive materials. When the sun’s rays hit the solar panels, the reaction creates direct current (DC) electricity.
If you are planning to go solar and you do not have a lot of space on ground to install solar panels, you can turn your roof into a solar powerhouse. Few factors to consider when you go solar are: Orientation, shade, material, age, space and pitch.
Solar energy works by converting the sun’s energy into electricity that can be used to power your residential or commercial appliances. But how does this happen? Read ahead because we will be answering all your questions about solar energy in this blog.

Going solar not only saves up a substantial chunk of your energy bills but is also the biggest step any organization can take at being more environmentally conscious. However, with the decision comes the daunting task of deciding on a solar financing option.
In continuation with the “buying vs leasing” debate, the second financing option is a ‘solar lease model.’ On paper, for many organizations solar leasing sounds quite lucrative as it allows them the opportunity to upgrade to a solar system without a prior investment.
Photovoltaic modules can be installed practically anywhere that gets direct sunshine for most of the day and is not obstructed by buildings or trees that would cause shadows. However, one’s preference could be influenced by factors such as local requirements, budgets, space and location.
Mounting structures, made of steel or aluminum, support PV modules on the ground or roof and allow modules to be mounted at a precise tilt angle to receive maximum sunlight. Hence, choosing the right material for the structure is one of the most critical steps when installing a...
