The changing of the seasons has already begun in some places as summer moves into fall. Solar energy is not as affected by the weather as you may think. The most important thing for your solar panels to collect and generate energy is the amount of sun in the sky.
Powering Through the Winter Months
As the heat used in the home increases and causes larger utility bills, homeowners with solar energy can enjoy the cost-saving benefits of having solar panels even as the temperatures drop. While the sun shines less in the winter months the further north you live, your home generally does not need as much energy as you think it does to power through those cold months.
