Increase the performance of your PV system is very important to enhance the productivity of your system. Improved productivity in fact involves a greater production of electricity in the year and consequently more money earned by the Energy Bill or a nice savings in the bill.

The action to put in place are few and simple.

How to increase the production of electricity

First you need to check the insulation of the modules that must be increasingly exposed to sunlight. Usually the systems are installed in summer or spring. The technicians have the tools to study the solar movement during the whole year, so they are able to predict any shading that may arise during the hours of the day, especially in the early morning or late afternoon.

But this does not always happen. A shadow could not have been predicted. A light pole, a tree, a building. Everything could come between the sun and solar module. A shaded panel will render its performance. Not only her, but also to all modules connected to it in the same string. Where possible and remove the obstacle or move the shaded module.

Secondly, it is good to constantly clean the photovoltaic panels, especially after a rain or after days of wind from the south that might have brought the sand. There is also the bird droppings, which undermines the efficiency of a module. Just arm yourself with a sponge and water and wash the glass modules. If we can not reach them you have to buy a carton, the same that use the washer at traffic lights. Careful not to use abravisi products, too aggressive or brushes that could scratch the glass and compromise the proper functioning of the module.

We use solar panels with high efficiency. At the time of the modules, one of the indices that we must take as a reference the efficiency.

It is of yield: only a part of the energy coming from the sun is in fact exploited for the conversion into electricity. usually we talk of values comprised between 13 and 20% for crystalline silicon modules (mono or poly) and of 9-12% for thin fil panels. It means producing more electricity using the same space as the module occupation. Obviously we have to reckon with higher spending for their purchase.

Solar trackers

An increase in the production of electricity during the year you can have thanks to the use of solar trackers. The modules are mounted on bases equipped with electric motor which rotates following the movement of the sun. The panels will always be exposed perpendicular to the sun’s rays, therefore the exhibition will be maximum and the increased production. However, a part of the electricity produced in more will be drawn by the motor that needs power supply for its operation.
