How much less energy is produced by solar panels in the winter than in the summer?

    Solar panels create energy from light, not heat. As there is less daylight during winter, solar panels produce less energy in winter than they do in the summer. The decrease in energy production of a solar panel during winter is proportional to the decrease in daylight hours. The idea that solar panels do not work in the winter comes from the misconception that they are powered by heat when in fact they are powered by light, or ultraviolet rays from the sun, which are always present during daylight hours.
