Solar Panels are Non-Reflective

Customers sometimes worry that their solar panels will reflect excess light and therefore irritate their neighbors. However, solar panels have been proven to reflect a minimal amount of sunlight, so neighbors of residences with solar panels will not be harmed by any solar panel installations.

One Aikyum Solar customer’s neighbor worried the panels on the customer’s house would reflect into his eyes too much. However, he need not have felt that way. He had thought that because his bathroom was across from his neighbor’s roof where solar panels were installed, the panels would bother him as he showered. The panels ended up not bothering him at all.

They Come with a Reflective Coating

Evidence proves solar panels are no more reflective than lakes are. Your solar panels will absorb, as Shawn-Yu Lin of Rensselaer Polytechnic University said, “nearly every single photon of light.” Panels remain a non-irritant and a sound choice for your residence.

To further the safety of solar panels, they’re are treated with an antireflective coating. This means the glass on top of solar panels is less reflective than regular glass, and is why the worry of light bouncing off solar panels and annoying neighbors is false. Along with the lack of danger from solar panels, benefits of them exist including the ability to receive a 30% Income Tax Credit.
