PID (Potential Induced Degradation) is a common phenomenon that affects the performance and lifespan of solar panels. It occurs when the voltage potential between the solar cells and the frame of the panel creates a current flow, causing the cells to degrade over time. Understanding PID and taking steps to prevent it is critical for maximizing the efficiency and longevity of your solar panels.
Solar panel faults can cause significant issues for commercial businesses as well as domestic homeowners who are relying on solar power. Understanding the common fault types and causes of these faults can help avoid costly downtime and repairs.
