Solar panels will even work in fog and on cloudy days - perfect for the Dunedin climate!<br /> <br /> The amount of power generated will depend on the thickness of the fog or cloud but at its worst, your panels might produce only 5-10% of the energy they normally do. Even if you live in an area with lots of foggy days, what really matters is how much sunshine your roof receives over the course of a whole year, not on a given day.&nbsp;<br />1445338800http://www.a1electrical.co.nz/news/4/Solar-power-myths-bustedhttp://www.a1electrical.co.nz175Solar power myths bustedhttp://www.a1electrical.co.nz/news/4/Solar-power-myths-busted New Website Design by Turbowebhttp://www.a1electrical.co.nz/news/3/New-Website-Design-by-TurbowebA1 Electrical have been working behind the scenes with local business Turboweb to create a new, eye-catching website that showcases the wide range of services A1 Electrical provide.<br /> <br /> Turboweb made the whole process easy for us and guided us through from design to launch.<br /> <br /> <a href="http://www.turboweb.co.nz">www.turboweb.co.nz</a>1445166000http://www.a1electrical.co.nz/news/3/New-Website-Design-by-Turbowebhttp://www.a1electrical.co.nz168New Website Design by Turbowebhttp://www.a1electrical.co.nz/news/3/New-Website-Design-by-Turboweb
