Officially today is “black Friday” when retail stores go into “the black” and make 50% of their profits in the last couple months of the year. Well, from this future solar dweller to another, I hope you are happy this holiday season, and have somehow avoided the consumer frenzy/crush at the malls today.
But we should be dreaming of a SOLAR holiday season. Check it:
Solar holiday fact:
Solar panels are oh so much cooler in cold temps!!! Your solar panels will produce more electricity on a COLD, sunny day, given that solar cells are more efficient operating at lower temperatures. Specifically, about a .5% electricity production increase on average for every 1oC decrease in solar panel temperature!!! So, if its 10 degrees C cooler on a given day, your panels will produce 5% more electricity. Solar panels during winter: no problem!
Happy solar holidays and just remember to follow the Winter sun too.
