Generating electricity and hot water in the snow

Generating electricity and hot water in the snow ? Solar Panels in Nottinghamshire

Whilst much of Nottinghamshire is covered in snow this morning and many schools are shut, there are some residents who will be benefitting from their solar panels ? whether for hot water or electricity.  It is one of those strange but true facts that despite the cold temperatures, solar irradiance is high when there is snow on the ground, so as long as solar panels are not covered in snow themselves, they will be performing well.  Richard Jones of EnergyMyWay in Nottinghamshire comments that ?solar panels and the associated equipment work efficiently in cold temperatures so when its sunny with the snow on the ground, the conditions for producing electricity and hot water can be close to ideal.?  Why not call us whilst you are at home and talk to us about how renewable energy can benefit you financially, whilst doing your bit for the environment.
