generates electricity in daytime. Cloudy weather, shadows, direction (compass point) and angle of panels will effect to the amount of generation.
generates more electricity in cold weather than in warm weather
if electricity is not used simultaneously with electricity generation, the system needs a battery pack for storage.
the electricity needed for 24 hours should be generated in daytime and the night time need is stored to a battery pack
efficiency of commercial solar panels is around 15-17% (status in 2018) of the solar radiation
life cycle of a solar panel is around 25-30 years, life cycle of batteries is shorter
