How heat affects solar panel performance

It may seem counter-intuitive, but solar panel efficiency is affected negatively by temperature increases.  Photovoltaic modules are tested at a temperature of 25 degrees C (STC) – about 77 degrees F., and depending on their installed location, heat can reduce output efficiency by 10-25%.  As the temperature of the solar panel increases, its output current increases exponentially, while the voltage output is reduced linearly. In fact, the voltage reduction is so predictable, that it can be used to accurately measure temperature.

A solar panel is constructed from many layers, all of which play a vital role in the panel’s capacity to produce electricity and its ability to withstand environmental stresses and the rigors of prolonged use.
