  • Does solar produce energy when it's cloudy?
    Your system will produce energy when it's sunny AND when it's cloudy. When it's sunny you will produce at your system's maximum potential. When it's cloudy, your system may produce at 10%-50% of system potential, depending on severity.

This is to compensate for expected lack of sun throughout the year (including nights and stormy weather). Example: Below is an example of a homeowner whose system will produce 102% of the power they use each year. The dark blue lines represent the power they use throughout the year and the light blue line shows the power their system will produce each month of the year. Overall the system will produce 2% more power than they have been using in their home. This results in not needing to pay the electric company for any power throughout the year.
