Solar Panels at Night 

The straightforward answer is that solar panels do not function at night. This is because solar panels rely on sunlight to generate electricity through a process known as the photovoltaic effect. During the day, the panels absorb sunlight and transform it into energy. At night, there is no sunlight to absorb, and the panels won’t produce electricity.

Solar Batteries as a Solution

With a solar battery, you can enjoy the benefits of solar energy even when the sun isn't shining. By storing excess energy generated by your solar panels during the day, you can use it at night when the panels are not producing energy. This helps maintain a consistent and uninterrupted supply of clean energy, reducing your reliance on the grid and lowering your energy bills.
