How much electricity will solar panels generate?

While it is difficult to guarantee an exact number, our team at Green Box Solar can help provide estimates based on the average amount of sunlight the area receives, panel orientation, and the solar panel system size.

Will solar panels work on cloudy days or at night?

Solar panels produce less electricity on cloudy days and at night because there is less solar energy available for the panels to absorb. However, if you invest in a solar battery, you can store excess energy generated during the day to use during low-light conditions.

How do I perform maintenance on solar panels?

Solar panel maintenance is usually minimal. Most solar panel manufacturers recommend cleaning the solar panels with water and a soft cloth as needed to maximize energy production. However, if you ever notice your solar energy system is not performing as well as it once did or you experience other issues, reach out to our team at Green Box Solar, who can help identify issues with the system. Green Box Solar monitors all of our installations and will likely know of any potential issues and start troubleshooting before you as the owner even realize there is a problem.
