Causes of the Degradation of Solar Panels
The deterioration of silicon cells is mainly the reason why panels stop generating power in an efficient way. Some of the Causes of the Degradation of Solar Panels include:
• Humidity Level
The US is mainly famous for its environment. Even though people enjoy such weather by going to the beaches, solar panels do not feel well enough under such circumstances. If the panels are not made good enough, they will start to fall apart soon under such conditions.
• Thermal Cycling
Thermal cycling actually means the change in temperatures that occur between day & night as a result of which the material with which the panels are made, expands and contracts. This causes the deterioration of the material.
• UV Damage
In the US, the sun shines bright which ensures that the panels will work efficiently. But that’s not the case in actuality. Some manufacturers do not add UV blockers while manufacturing these panels as a result of which the performance of panels starts going down day by day. All you need to do under such circumstances is to get rid of those panels and buy new ones in order to ensure that they are meeting the needs of your home or workplace.
