Location Location Location: Why Shading is Bad for Solar Systems

on 10/24/17 10:00 AM By | SEPCO | 2 Comments | Solar Lighting Solar Power Installation
  Shade is a wonderful thing, especially in the summer in the south; however, it is bad for off-grid solar power and solar lighting applications. This is because shading robs the solar panels of its peak energy production capacity, which in turn, has an adverse effect on overall system performance. Basically stated, if the solar is shaded, power will not be produced as expected, not allowing the batteries to fully charge, and causing system failures over time. Instead, make sure your installation location has full sun exposure.
