Solar panels in Britain stopped working Tuesday as temperatures in the country topped 100 degrees Fahrenheit.
The solar panels generated only 2.8 gigawatts of energy, compared to the 3.3 gigawatts typically expected at this time of year, The Telegraph reported.
“We never see peak output in mid summer,” University of Sheffield professor Alastair Buckley said. “We saw cell temperatures of 70 degrees yesterday on our test system. Normally it would be between 40 degrees and 50 degrees.”
[E&E Legal Senior Policy Fellow and Junkscience.com Founder Steve Milloy Tweeted]: “The weather was too hot for solar panels on Tuesday as soaring temperatures reduced their efficiency.” What part of ‘green’ is not a total fail?
