If the start of Daylight Savings Time has left you tired after losing an hour of sleep, we have some great news to cheer you up!
The start of Daylight Savings Time means that Summre is almost here, which means that we will be seeing increased hours of daylight. This is great news for outdoor enthusiasts, gardeners, and others who enjoy spending time outside and in the fresh air. It also means that your solar power system may see increased production thanks to longer exposure of your solar panels to sunlight.
You may have read our previous post about solar power production in the wintertime, where we stated that the efficiency of your solar panels will not decrease due to cold weather. This is still true! Solar panels operate more efficiently in lower temperatures. However, your panels are exposed to more hours of daylight in the summertime, so the longer sun exposure may allow your system to generate more solar power than it does in the colder (and darker) months.
This is great news for homeowners who have solar power systems already, because they will immediately see the impact on their air conditioning bills, when the weather gets warmer. Even better, it is still early enough in the season that homeowners who are interested in solar power can sign up for a solar analysis today, and their homes will be ready for the summer sun when it arrives!
