Even though solar panel technology has been around for a long time, a lot of people find themselves hesitant in adopting solar technology on their roofs due to many misconceptions regarding solar panel systems. One myth argues that photovoltaic panels require constant sunlight. However, in reality, panels mostly require UV radiation over direct sunlight. Even when the sky is cloudy, the panels will function with full potential. In fact, panels work even more efficiently when they’re cooler.
Another myth is that pv panels cannot handle winter temperatures and precipitation. However, panels are almost maintenance-free even in the winter. South-facing panels even help melt the snow and keep it off and still collect a lot of solar energy. They also protect the roof from weather damage. Another myth concerns the visual appeal of installing solar panels. While some may think that panels will dampen the esthetic appeal of their property, in actuality, solar panels can even come as solar shingles for a sleek, black roof. They also increase the value of the property and protect the roof from weather damage.
Some people think that solar panels require a lot of maintenance. However, since panels can survive extreme weather conditions such as hurricanes, normal weather will not affect the efficiency of the panel. The panels are easy to clean, all you need to do is hose them off periodically.
Solar energy is efficient, free, does not damage the environment, and will lead to savings in the long run. While the initial investment may seem excessive, they pay for themselves in the long run and save the homeowner a substantial amount of money every year.

Opponents of the solar industry constantly attempt to portray the solar energy field as an expensive venture. However, recent studies predict the decrease in the cost of solar energy if the market grows in popularity. If you examine Germany, with their booming solar market, you can see how widely solar energy is used, making it obvious that with the popularity, the accessibility and affordability are increased. Due to this boom in their country’s solar use, solar PV decreased peak electricity prices by 40%.
There is enough solar electricity on a sunny day in Germany to fully compensate the increase in energy usage due to air conditioning. Instead of using conventional, nonrenewable sources of energy to power this increase in utility usage, the country turns to solar to fill the difference, diminishing the price peaks during hot summer days.
