Solar panels operate on cloudy days, but the productivity will be lower. Clouds blocking the sun limit the amount of direct sunlight the solar panels can absorb. The decrease in sunlight absorbed by solar panels results in less electricity produced. Overall a few cloudy days won’t ruin your dream of a successful solar project. The determining factor of a prosperous system is the amount of sun your area receives over an entire year.
