Winter and solar
Cloud cover is the enemy of solar energy. Whenever there is cloud cover your solar system produces less energy compared to a clear day. This consideration is particularly important when sizing your solar panels. You should aim to have more solar panels than you need. This known as oversizing your solar array. That way you will always produce enough power to use in your him
Zimbabwe is a good country for solar power generation throughout the year, averaging some 6.5 sun hours. Winters tend to be very cold, and many days are often accompanied by cloud cover. Its important to know that on cloudy days you will produce less power and therefore you must plan accordingly to ensure that you don't run out of power.
A good system will balance solar power with utility power. The fewer solar panels you have the less energy you will generate and in winter this becomes more apparent.
