Maximum Peak Output from Solar Panels

Another record was reached yesterday with the output from our solar panels. The peak output reached 2960W, comfortably passing the previous maximum of 2760W. This is only the instantaneous output and was achieved after a cloud had passed, cooling the panels and therefore increasing their efficiency. So for our 3010kWp panels we are achieving a peak efficiency of 98.3% at the moment. It will be interesting to see how that changes over the summer months.

We have also achieved another record today with a total daily output of 17.5kWh but with the lengthening days I expect this will happen very frequently until we reach mid June.
