Does Solar Really Work in Your State?

“Yes, Solar really does work in your state, especially if you live in the south! ” Below you will find a short overview on why the South is great for solar .

Yes, Solar really does work in your state, especially if you live in the south! The eight Southeastern states are great locations for Solar arrays. It is simple, we have the 5’th best solar radiance levels (best sunlight ) in the country, right behind California and the high deserts of the US.. There are several added benefits to solar in the south, first, we do not get the extreme heat as Nevada, New Mexico, Arizona or parts of California. While they may get an hour more of sunshine a day, that heat limits the performance of the solar panels. The second important factor is we get rain on a somewhat regular basis, cleaning the dust, pollen and debris from the panels, improving their performance. Lastly, today’s solar panels and inverters are incredibly more efficient than products available 10 years ago, so as long as we have Daylight, most solar arrays will produce power, even on cloudy, hazy days.
