Solar Production In Richmond, VA

Your solar panels won’t necessarily receive the same amount of sunlight all year long. Long summer days with bright sunshine usually mean increased solar production. In contrast, shorter winter days may limit the amount of sunlight available for capture by your solar panels. Richmond homeowners may be interested in how they can use solar energy to power their homes, no matter the season, with POWERHOME SOLAR’s American-made, high-output solar panels. 

What Do Solar Panels Need To Create Solar Energy?

While solar panels require sunlight to produce solar energy, they don’t necessarily need direct or high-intensity sunlight. Even on cloudy or wintry days, your solar system can generate solar electricity to be converted for use in your home. Like most electronics, solar panels are actually work better at lower temperatures. As long as your solar panels remain clear of debris and precipitation buildup, production will continue.

To keep your solar panels working efficiently, we recommend hiring a professional to address any buildup once or twice a year. While rain will cover most of the cleaning of your solar panels, a professional can remove tougher residue from your solar panels. This is often especially important for homes in drier locations with limited rainfall, as well as homes with flat roofs that may impede runoff.

Help Your Solar Energy Go Farther

Beyond your custom solar panels, POWERHOME SOLAR offers additional products that can maximize the benefits of solar energy in your Richmond home. Even with fewer hours of sun or limited high-intensity sunlight, homeowners can still power their homes with solar energy.
