What happens to your Solar panels in the Summer?

Colorado Summers Equal A Solar Heat Wave!

It’s no surprise that your Solar panels are going to produce more in the summer than the rest of the year, but why is that important, and how can you maximize your offset?

In Colorado we are lucky enough to have an average of 300 days of sunshine, which is a great environment for Solar production. We also are subject to severe weather swings and temperature changes. In the winter we have below freezing temperatures and in the spring we are all on hail watch. All of these elements combine to affect the way your Solar array works from day to day, knowing how the effects will translate to your production is the best place to start.

It’s important to know how your Solar Arrays work so you can best utilize your production. Compare it to knowing about your car’s maintenance if you want it to work, you need to know how it responds to different environmental factors. According to CEO Jake DiRe, “EcoMark has specialized technicians we send to every customer’s home to set them up with their monitoring app and provide 25 years of support as part of our Protection Plan. This way, customers can track their production month over month and be notified if any of the solar panels are not reporting.” EcoMark Solar is committed to providing tools for their customers to achieve the goal of off-setting their consumption over the entire year, not just in the high-production summer months.

The best practice is to remember that conserving your energy consumption throughout the summer is just as important as through the winter. Over the long summer days you will build up energy credits that can be applied towards your consumption during the shorter winter days. Knowing about how your particular Utility provider handles Solar credits is also important. “EcoMark Solar works closely with every utility provider to make sure our home owners understand how the process works for them.” Says DiRe.
