Can Solar Panels and their efficiency be affected by rain?

By 8 April 2019News
1- Can Solar Panels be affected by rain?
Solar panel electricity systems, also known as solar photovoltaics (PV), capture the sun’s energy using photovoltaic cells. All solar panels are waterproof, and in the rare case that they are damaged by water. The rain also helps to keep your panels operating efficiently by washing away any dust or dirt. And you are usually protected by warranties from Estia Synergie.
2- Can the efficiency be affected due to rain?
The cells of the solar panel don’t need direct sunlight to work; they can still generate some electricity on a cloudy day. The cells convert the sunlight into electricity, which can be used to run household appliances and lighting. Photovoltaic panels can use direct or indirect sunlight to generate power, though they are most effective in direct sunlight. Solar panels will still work even when the light is reflected or partially blocked by clouds. They do work in cloudy weather; 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.
