The Best Season To Get Solar Installed

Thinking about getting a solar system installed in your home? There are many factors to consider but the least considered of all of them would be when the best season is to install solar which affects your return on investment.

Going solar sooner rather than later is always better and the earlier you do so, the faster you’ll experience the many benefits of home solar systems. But when is the ideal time to do so?

Winter installations tend to be avoided in our region due to winter rainfall, whilst Summer months will likely leave you wishing you had sprung into action sooner because this is usually the time when most of the market springs onto the bandwagon to get their home solar system installed. 

The best time to install a solar energy system is during Spring where we get an average of 12 hours of sunlight allowing your panels more than enough time to soak up the sun’s rays and is therefore the second best season for solar production with Summer as the best season for solar production.


Contrary to popular belief, the effectiveness of a solar panel system does not rely on heat, but on light. Warm or cold days, you will still be harvesting rays. By installing your solar panels in early Spring, you allow yourself the opportunity to start collecting power during the two sunniest seasons of the year, which can be stored for use in the months when the sun’s rays are not as effective in generating power but yet the most power is being used – Autumn and Winter. 

We’re just getting started with Spring, so now is the perfect time to get your solar panel installed by Green Light City. If you would like a quote, give us a call or send us a message via our contact form
