I've never seen mine shut down due to high heat, but then again I do live in Wyoming.

Do a search for "solar pv panels and summer heat" to locate info. I'm on my tablet and it's still a pita to copy/paste . I'm doing good to type. The pages get away from me. You probably wouldn't beleive anything that I post. And you shouldn't. Always do your own research.

Got it. Only took three tries. I think I'm getting the hang of this thing. But I will stop with just one. I don't want to push my luck. Now if Ican just figure out how to scrolldown to the bottom of the tezt box where I want to go rather than where the tablet wants to go.

Now I will go download some more freebie books. Oh, that reminds me. I gotta post this info elsewhere.....

Re: Mounting/securing solar panels on roof

Thanks for the link. By your earlier post I thought when they got over a certain temp they would all the sudden shut off, but it's more of a gradual thing. Good to know. So the greater efficiency they have in cold weather will somewhat offset the reduced amount of daylight they get in the winter.

Re: Mounting/securing solar panels on roof

true, air flow under them really works and it makes shade if you have a lot of them
