Does a solar panel generate the same energy in summer and winter?

    Does a solar panel generate the same energy in summer and winter?

    Photovoltaic cells generate energy for a greater number of hours in the months when there is more light.

    The solar They are devices that convert sunlight into energy, and are often used to generate electricity. They are made up of photovoltaic cells, which are responsible for creating it thanks to sunlight. While solar culture is not widespread in Spain, the California government has required it to be installed in all new homes starting in 2020.

    Being a transformation of sunlight, the operation is not the same in all months of the year. Photovoltaic cells generate energy for a greater number of hours in the months when there is more light. Rafael Barrera, director of the National Association of Photovoltaic Energy Producers, has stressed that “the important thing is not the temperature, but the light.” What's more, “extreme heat can have a negative impact,” he highlighted. However, according to the same source, “it is evident that in the month of June there will be more hours of sunshine, so it will have more hours of energy,” but at the same time, in the fall, “they will work well.” because the panels will work at an adequate temperature.” Of course, it will be done for fewer hours because there will be less daylight.

    The difference in energy obtained cannot be measured directly because other factors come into play, such as the number of panels. Additionally, since the disparity comes down to the amount of time on power, it varies within the same season of the year.

    The price of an installation of photovoltaic solar panels will depend on each house. First you have to see its orientation or the number of hours of light it can receive to know the number of plates that are needed, and in addition, you will have to see how much energy is needed. 

    In Spain it is not considered common, where subsidies are different depending on the autonomous community but there is no widespread culture of solar energy. Yes, it has spread in European countries like Germany, which installed twelve times more solar energy than Spain.
