How Do Solar Panels Work?

Solar in Michigan

The cooler climate in Michigan asists in keeping panels from over heating. Over heating can reduce the efficiency of solar electric panels. Panels are installed with space between the panels and the roof creating air flow and allowing the roof to dry and remain cool.

During a Michigan snowfall light rays are still penetrating the solar panels. Solar panels are dark in color which helps to melt the snow. The micro-inverters enable the solar panels to utilize these low light levels, creating enough heat to melt the snow while still generating electricity. A single string system would be inoperable longer because it would require higher levels of direct sunlight to kick in until the sun melted the snow.
