Here are some tips for maximizing your solar power output now that summer is here. In the first place you’ll want to keep your home’s solar panels working at peak output. In particular, it’s the optimum time to capitalize on the longer daytime hours and additional sunlight. Indeed, smoother-running systems mean better performance and bigger savings.

To this end we’re listing some tips to help make your summertime solar power experience better and more optimized.

Tilt adjustment tips

To begin with, the angle of your solar panels will contribute to the amount of sunlight they receive. Consequently, this will impact directly on the amount of sunlight the system can convert for your use. For this reason, you need to ensure that the panels are sitting at the optimal angle. Generally, this will be done during the initial installation process.  However, there is always the possibility of doing it later should you so decide.

Good systems may have adjustable panel frames, which utilize adjustable mountings. You can then control their tilt either manually or through automated or motorized features. One of the most important tips is to correctly angle your panels at the start of the season.

Maximize exposure to sunlight

For the system to achieve its potential, it needs as much sunlight as it can get. And in summer, in particular, you get more sunlight than usual. Consequently, thanks to the longer days and generally warmer weather, solar output will be excellent. The ambient temperatures don’t really play a part in the equation, though. What matters is the amount of light hitting the panels.

There are a few more tips you can make use of to ensure maximum exposure for your panels. For example, if you have lots of shade around your home, make sure it doesn’t fall on the panels. Shade may be nice on the deck but is counterproductive for solar panels.

Furthermore, make sure to clean up the dirt and debris that accumulates on the panels over time. While rainfall, wind, and even melting snow can keep the panels clean, you might still want to clean them manually. Therefore, a periodic wash should do the trick. This is especially helpful if the weather in your area gets extremely dry for stretches.

Maintenance tips for optimum power

Some additional tips you might want to keep in mind include the following:

  • – Make sure to inspect the panels regularly to see that they are clean.
  • – When scrubbing the panels, don’t use brushes with hard coarse bristles; these could damage the panels’ surface.
  • – Also, make sure not to use detergents that are mineral-rich as these may leave a surface coating.
  • – Cut off overgrown tree branches and remove all obstructions so that your panels can do their thing.

If you’re not too keen on doing maintenance work on the system yourself, don’t hesitate to contact your solar panel provider. Regular maintenance contracts are usually very affordable.

The advantages of renewable energy

Summer is a great time to be a solar panel system owner. Your system can produce ample power, which means you get to save more on your monthly electric bill. Follow these tips to help your system perform at its best when its energy source is at its peak. These tips and tweaks for power generation might not seem like much but improving system efficiency is key.
