Most solar panels offered by renowned solar EPC companies are specially designed to function throughout the year, irrespective of the weather conditions. Some companies in India still have not yet installed solar systems because they think the system doesn’t work while it is raining. It is a myth which you should debunk if you want to make the most out of the panels in your commercial property.
Get in touch with a reputable solar EPC company and they will share a few tips to protect your solar panels. The objective is to make them work efficiently even when it is raining. The modern models are designed in such a way so that thunderstorms can’t cause much damage to the solar panels, rendering them unproductive.
The primary objective of the protective coverings is to keep the solar panels protected from heavy rain. Be very careful when adding a protective covering as they can restrict direct sunlight which can reduce the panels’ productivity. But using them is highly advisable as they protect the panels from getting destroyed. You can also put a layer of methacrylate to cover the solar panels. The layer is thin and allows sunlight to pass through them very easily. You can keep the panels protected without reducing their productivity.
You can protect solar panels from heavy rain by rearranging them at the desired angle. Instead of trying a DIY, get in touch with a reputable solar installer and they will help you out. Place them at such an angle, allowing rainwater to slip off the surface. The objective is to keep them productive and clean. You can consider using an automated device to move these panels if you want to position numerous of them simultaneously. The technology is a bit expensive and you might end up spending more than the cost of solar panel installation.
These being said, you can consider the points stated above and get in touch with the skilled installers at KSL Cleantech Limited if you want to protect your solar panels during the rainy season.
