The sun is now too hot for solar panels to be as effective as they once were!
Another green idea, right out the window.

"But if temperatures remain elevated for long, it might actually risk slowing down solar energy’s output.

Solar panels around the world are manufactured and tested to function optimally at around 77°F, or 25°C, and the range in which most solar panels can still operate at peak efficiency is between 15°C and 35°C. Any hotter, and utility and installation companies warn that a panel’s efficiency can start dropping fast."

Entire state of California just put out a warning not to charge your electric vehicles as it might cause the grid to collapse.

nonsense.

we're talking a fraction of % for each degree over peak efficiency.

do you honestly think a black material in the sun is going to stay at 35 deg?

have you never put something black in the sun?

...some even higher.

they're rated to operate at least 85 C but will work much higher.. 100+ C

the materials they are made out of are rated for 200+ C.

As per usual people getting their education from "NEWS" get it wrong.

most solar panels temperature coefficient will be about 0.45.

meaning that for every degree above their max efficient rated temp, there will be a loss of 0.45%.

for example if a solar panel is most efficient at 25 deg c, then if that panel was, double at 50 deg c, it would have lost 12% efficiency.

Solar panels are feeling the heat too: How heatwave temperatures are hampering solar power


The impact is not minimal. High temperatures can decrease the efficiency of solar panels by 10 to 25 per cent, according to data shared by CED Greentech.

For every degree Celsius more reported by a solar panel, its efficiency drops by 0.5 percentage points, according to Solar.com.

Do search on solar panel roof fires too. Happening everywhere. A house burnt down not far from he. They put it down to "faulty solar panel wiring" in the heat. A huge solar farm just went up in smoke too destroying tens of 1000's of panels.



They are warning people in the UK to park electric cars in the shade and not to charge the battery over 80% now too.

Solar panels are NOT heat exchangers.

They collect and radiate heat like asphalt does.

It's the dirty little secret the solar companies doesn't like to talk about.

More solar panels means higher temperatures and because solar cells are powered by chemical reactions in the cells higher temperatures as well as lower temperatures effect the chemical reactions in the cells.

Don't believe me check the temperatures in areas with vast solar farms compared to areas with regular farm lands, the solar farm area is Hotter by far like an asphalt parking lot compared to tree filled park.

I read a sci Fi short story in the 1970s that had that sun-too-hot as a premise.

Space settlers sent to set up a colony where their solar energy panels failed because they were built for the Earth Sun. It was hard sci-fi based on tech fail.

Why doesn't missile exhaust set planes and ships on fire that launch them? It's because of duration of heat exposure. Solar panels are shielded during transport to protect them until they are deployed. Solar cells in outer space aren't the same as solar panels.

Truly ignorant
This heat wave is no different then heat waves we have had in the past. The benefits of being alive long enough. I have seen many a great wave. You can look them up though, we have had them in every decade.
Texas had 28 days in the 80s over
105. This is not global warming.. Its normal
So please stop sensationalizing this.

Yes and the UK had great waves as well.

WRONG!!! It's quite the opposite, actually! Use your brian!
The solar panels can now be 'filled' in 5 min and it's costing them millions. Therefore they are feeding you LIES!!!

The hotter the sun, the better the panels work. The only danger is that many homes are gonna overheat and explode/catch fire. Because it is working too well and the panels won't be able to keep up.

I mean once they install your panels...WHO makes money out of you charging them/using them/heating your home with them?? They are useless in the summer, they're gonna implode your house!

1000s of studies have determined artificial clouds are blocking much of the light, IR, UV and gamma, from reaching the surface. Many were done in CA. Complaints filed and investigations under way. Shasta country CA was leading the way. Just like the vaccines, people will hang over this.
