Comparing Schools and Solar Systems

Things aren’t always as they seem.
Take a look at the graph below to begin. Remember not all comparisons are the same as others!


Why Comparisons aren't
always Straightforward

Comparing solar panel systems might seem simple - but it's important to know that there are lots of different reasons why some schools' panels and systems will perform better than others. Here are some contributing factors you could investigate!

  • Weather at the school's location
  • Shadows over the system
  • Age of the systems
  • Size of the system
  • Solar radiation
  • Seasonal changes
