In the solar industry, we express the amount of sunlight that your solar panel receives in “peak sun hours”.

A peak sun-hour is an hour during which the intensity of the sunlight is 1,000 watts per square meter. The amount of solar radiation delivered by the sun often varies throughout the day and is affected by the sun’s position in the sky, clouds and other atmospheric conditions.

As part of your installation design, B Solar works out how to install your solar panels so they receive the maximum sunlight.

Even though solar systems generate the most power when it is sunny, they still generate electricity even when it’s overcast.

Peak sun hours can get quite technical, so if you want advice about your home, talk to the B Solar team on 1800 932 356.
