Does solar work in the winter/at night
*

Solar panels will work whenever there is enough daylight. They will work in the winter, but not at night.

The solar panel may not work on some days during the winter so another heating system is needed as a backup. This can be a conventional boiler or another form of renewable energy. Click on Solar can advise on the best system for you.

Many customers ask if they have to clear snow from their solar panels. This is not necessary as, although the panel will not work while it is covered with snow, you will find that the snow melts more rapidly from the panel than from the rest of your roof. Temperature is also not a problem as panels on Alpine hotels work perfectly in temperatures as low as minus 30 degrees Celsius.
