Don’t Bank On Solar Power In Winter!

“…for the last month, solar power has been running at a tiny 4% of its capacity, with many days well below this.”

Unreliables. Enough said.

Wait till the Health & Safety Stasi see this!

The renewable lobby would like you to believe that solar power is an important part of our future energy strategy.

But they don’t tell you just how little power is produced during winter months, at the time when demand is at its peak.

    Most people also believe solar panels generate the same power during daylight hours. They don’t. On any given day there is a peak output at midday, which varies according to how cloudy the day is. More cloud, equals less power. But there’s more to it than that. It starts from zero at daybreak and the power gradually increases until it reaches that peak, after which it gradually decreases back down to zero at nightfall. The other element is latitude. The same panel will give twice as much power at the equator than it does at higher latitudes because of the angle at which the sunlight hits it. That’s why solar power is good in California but rubbish in Scotland, where you need twice the number of panels for the same power output. The solar industry is not keen for you to know this.
