Q1: One big concern from RVers when it comes to flexible solar panels is the overheating. Under what conditions does this issue pop out?
A: Under normal conditions, according to Law of Conservation of Energy, as long as a panel turns the majority of sunlight into energy, it will not overheat. Only when the panels are churned out with out-of-date technology, will the energy production effect be impeded, resulting in overheating somewhere down the road.
Q2: What if the RV parks under trees when the panel is therefore partly blotted out by leaves and branches?
A: When the panel is shadowed, it will reduce the energy output, but no overheating will be caused. If the surface of the panel is locally covered consecutively and contiguously, for example, bird droppings or falling leaves on the panel for a period of time, then this part of the panel is prone to be short-circuited.
Please be sure to clean your solar panel on a regular basis. Shawllar applies a whole piece of copper foil into the panel to make the heat dissipate faster when using.
Q3: What cause the peeling and yellowing of flexible solar panels?
A:This is mainly due to the raw material of which the back side of the panel is made of. Shawllar uses the KPK (double-sided fluorine-containing) liner on the back side of the panel. Other manufacturers might be using the polyethylene, which is a just a normal plastic.
The POE fluorine film material used on the front side has the characteristics of high light transmission, high weather resistance, high surface strength and easy cleaning, and is the preferred material for the front of flexible modules. Regular flexible modules will not go peeling or yellowing!
