Q: What happens when it’s cloudy, or during winter time or night time, how does solar produce  then ? 

When you receive your energy evaluation report, which is specifically designed for your house,  it will tell you how much energy your system will produce for the year. While it is true that solar does not produce as much in the winter, it often overproduces in the spring ,summer and fall months. And what happens when a system produces more power than you use is , you get credits carrying over into the next month , and homeowners use those credits to help with months where the system doesn’t produce as much. And if you don’t use all the power that your system creates in a year, your local Power company has been mandated to buy back the excess power. One thing that makes South Carolina a great market for solar ,  is our systems produce what they’re supposed to ,or more ,in 10  out of the 12 months each year.
