The solar output power will be reduced. If you are relying on it and don't have other sources of power this is a problem. You would need to have a large battery for backup, this would also occur at night.

What happens to solar panels when its a cloudy day?

it freezes ahahahahahaha


Do solar panels generate power when it's cloudy?

Yes. If there is any light, even on a cloudy day, a solar panel can generate power. But the amount of power generated is much less when the solar panel is not in direct sunlight (about 90% less).


How does outdoor solar lighting get power during cloudy days?

Solar lights still receive some sun light on cloudy days. Many are able to store power from previous sunny days and continue working through a few cloudy days before needing more sun light to power them. http://www.livestrong.com/article/170281-do-solar-lights-charge-on-a-cloudy-day/

Will photsynthesis still occur on a cloudy day?

Even on a cloudy day, the solar radiations are able to reach the earth. So photosynthesis can occur even on a cloudy day.


How solar panels generate energy?

whenever the sun farts, it travels through a tube in space down to every solar panel on earth, and they use the power of the sun's farts to power the houses. On a cloudy day, they use your mom.


Why is a solar water heater not so efficient on a cloudy day?

A solar water heater relies on sunlight to heat the water. On a cloudy day the amount of sunshine is reduced, so the water probably will not be as hot. Solar PV panels have the same problem. On cloudy or rainy days the amount of electricity generate is much less.


How would a solar power house get energy on a cloudy or rainy day?

sunlight can even go through the cloud's, but it is hard to pick up. but solar panels can pick up this little sunlight.


How do Solar PV system functions on a cloudy day Does it provide hot water during night or in a climate condition when sun is not visible?

Net metering and solar-plus-storage technology allow solar panel system to access electricity on a cloudy day when solar panel production is dormant, either through connection to the electric grid or to a battery. Thanks to grid connections and solar energy storage, solar panels are a sustainable round-the-clock energy solution . The simple answer is that solar panels do work on cloudy days – they just do not perform as well as they would on a bright sunny day. Though estimates range, solar panels will generate about 10 – 25% of their normal power output on a cloudy day Yes it will also provide the hot water because of the same answer mentioned above. For more information you can visit Prakash.in , and also can get one for your place.


What are the advantages of having a solar power generator?

The advantages of solar power generator are just too many and the foremost is it enables to produce solar power which is an inexhaustable source of power supply. The solar power generator stores the solar energy produced throughs olar panels to be used any time, during day or night even during cloudy days. Youdo not have to depend on fossil fuel which is costlier and diminishing everyday.


Can a solar cooker work on a cloudy day?

no, because the solar oven needs heat from the sun in order to cook properly.


If it is a cloudy day then how you will get solar energy?

Quite simply, you get less solar energy than when it is not cloudy. For example, a solar stove can still heat water, but it will no longer boil.Quite simply, you get less solar energy than when it is not cloudy.

Does a solar panel generates electricity even if there is no sun in the sky?

Solar panels are not dependent upon the sun to shine from a cloud free sky. Solar Panels generates power on a cloudy day too. They just do not generate power at night. They do generate more power the brighter it is though. Sunlight from a clear sky is the best.


What would happen to solar panels if there was no sun out?

Nothing. Solar panels store heat inside so that on a cloudy day the solar panels work.


Lower Your Electric Bill With A Home Solar Power Generator?

A home solar power generator can help you lower or eliminate your electric bill. Most home solar generators use solar panels on the roof to collect solar energy. These panels will cover most of your roof, but will not detract from the look of your home. Energy is collected during the day and stored in batteries. During the night or on a cloudy day, you will use the energy stored in the batteries.


How can solar heating system heat your house on a cloudy day?

A solar heating system can provide heat on a cloudy day if it is equipped with a giant thermal bottle. The heated water or oil in the thermal bottle can be used to provide heat long after the sun is gone.


When it is cloudy outside and the energy you use is from the sun what do you do?

If you are relying on solar power, and have no connection to the supply system, you would have a problem. Same at night. The answer is to have a large battery (probably a lead-acid cell) which you charge up during sunny weather, and use the stored energy as required. The system would need to be designed to cope with this in the first place. If you were reliant on solar electricity because of no grid connection then the electricity produced by the solar panels would be stored in efficient solar batteries. The power is then supplied from the batteries, day and night, and also when it's cloudy. Of course, some power will still be produced when it's cloudy, supplying charge to the batteries.


Why buy solar powered cars?

because they are eco-nomical (however bad on a cloudy day!)LOL!


Are the suns rays hotter on a cloudy day or a clearer day?

Solar radiation is able to reach the surface much more directly when clouds aren't in its way, and are thus able to heat the surface more than on a cloudy day.


Is it possible to gather solar energy on a partly cloudy day?

well any amount of sun on the solar panne will generate energy so yes

How can you use solar panels as a renewable recource?

Solar panels are not a renewable resource, unless you recycle them. Solar panels make electrical power from solar energy, but it in no way replenishes the Sun to make more solar energy in the future. However, the Sun does rise every day, and when it's not cloudy the electrical energy produced by the panels is reinstated.


Which is more expensive for home power generation, wind power or solar?

I looked for the answer, but could not find it. My opinion on the subject is that wind power would benefit you more because when the sun sets the power is gone. If you went with solar power, you would have to spend more money on batteries to charge. Thus a wind mill would be more constant during a storm, or cloudy day.


Would solar power be best for a home yes or no?

well, that depends on how much you are willing to spend. Solar power is more expensive, but better for the environment. But you would need backup for a cloudy day. And you also need something to translate from the energy from the sun to energy that can be used to power electric appliances. So if you are worried about cost, no. If not, go for it! :D


What are solar path lights used for?

Solar path lights are used for lighting walkways during nighttime. They are solar-powered, meaning they rely on the sun as the primary source of power and recharge during the day. They are thus most effective in sunny areas and might not be a good choice for shaded or cloudy areas.
