Solar Panels


To clean a solar panel, use a soft brush or cloth with mild soap and water. Gently scrub the surface to remove dirt, debris, and any bird droppings. Avoid using abrasive materials or harsh chemicals, as they can damage the panels.

The frequency of cleaning solar panels depends on factors such as location, weather conditions, and the presence of dust or debris. As a general guideline, aim to clean them every few months or as needed to maintain optimal performance.

Yes, solar panels do require direct sunlight to generate electricity efficiently. While they can still generate some power on cloudy days, their performance is optimized under direct sunlight.

Solar panels can still generate electricity with snow on them, although their efficiency may be reduced. Snow should melt or slide off the panels relatively quickly due to their dark surface and heat absorption. Additionally, solar panels are typically installed at an angle, which helps prevent snow buildup.

Solar panel efficiency can be influenced by factors like sunlight intensity, shading, temperature, tilt angle, and cleanliness of the panels. Ensuring optimal placement and maintenance can maximize the efficiency of your solar panel system

To charge a power station with a solar panel, connect the solar panel to a charge controller, then connect the charge controller to the power station. The charge controller regulates the voltage and current from the solar panel to prevent overcharging the power station. Ensure that the solar panel's output matches the voltage requirements of the power station.

While solar panels are most efficient under direct sunlight, they can still generate electricity on cloudy days due to diffuse sunlight. However, their output will be lower compared to sunny days. Solar panels do not generate electricity at night unless paired with battery storage or connected to the grid for net metering.

Both the 200W and 200W PRO solar panels use monocrystalline silicon cells. The biggest difference lies in the materials used. The 200W solar panel is made of PET material, while the 200W PRO solar panel is made of ETFE material.

ETFE can withstand high levels of thermal stress and chemical erosion, outperforming PET in this aspect. It is more durable, with a lifespan of at least 10 years, and has higher light transmittance, with a thickness of less than 0.1 millimeters and lighter weight.
