What if it rains, does solar work? We hear that a lot at Black Stump. The simple answer: Yes. You can still generate solar power when it rains. And a lot of it.
Solar energy is generated from irradiance. The intensity of the solar radiation at a given location depends on your latitude, terrain, season, time of day, and atmospheric conditions. For example, clouds, dust, and water vapor all affect the amount of radiation that reaches the surface at any given location. (Wikipedia)
Here’s a graph of power generation from one of our deployments on a rainy day on June 30 in Sydney, still generating power despite wintry weather. A Black Stump Renewable Energy UPS system will keep your site camp running 24 hours a day, whatever the weather.
