Solar Panel Efficiency

The efficiency of solar panels refers to the amount of sunlight they can convert into usable electricity. While the average efficiency of solar panels ranges between 15% and 20% [1], ongoing advancements in solar technology have led to even higher efficiencies, with some panels reaching up to 400W [2]. 

By choosing solar panels with higher efficiency, you can generate more electricity from the same amount of sunlight, maximizing your energy production and savings with Momentum Solar. At Momentum Solar we only work with high-quality materials to ensure we deliver top-notch efficiency to your home.

Cloudy Conditions

You might be wondering how solar panels perform on cloudy or rainy days. Good news! Solar panels can still collect energy from the sun on cloudy days and there are ways to keep your home powered up during these times!

According to the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), solar panels can produce well even on a cloudy day [4]. Solar panels can also work in winter conditions, as snow typically melts and slides off the panels easily, allowing them to continue generating electricity [5]. So, even when the weather isn’t perfect, your solar panels will still help you save on your energy bills.

If you opt for battery storage for your system, you’ll be even less affected when bad weather occurs. Battery backups are a great addition to your home’s solar system and can help maximize savings throughout the year.

At Momentum, we’re proud to offer Enphase energy storage solutions to help you make the most of your solar energy. By storing the excess energy your solar panels produce, you can use that energy later when the sun isn’t shining, such as at night or during cloudy days. This way, you can further reduce your reliance on grid electricity, enjoy greater energy independence and maximize your savings.

Having storage is useful when dealing with power outages. Whether it’s an incoming or a sweeping summer thunderstorm, Enphase can keep your home powered up for multiple days or even weeks, depending on your storage capacity.
