You're in the Solar Sweet Spot
With plenty of sunshine year-round, it’s not surprising that Hawaii is a great place for Solar Electric Photovoltaic (PV) systems. What is surprising, however, is that systems in Hawaii operate much more efficiently than in places where the temperatures
often exceed 100°F. At 100°F+, the sun’s energy is converted to heat instead of electricity, and the photovoltaic panels overheat and operate less efficiently.
Bonus. Because photovoltaic system components are made of either stainless steel or anodized aluminum, they resist rust in our salty air.
