PV Project Thermography - PVRES Home (4/8/98)

Photovoltaic System

If we examine the south-facing roof with the IR camera, we can see that the photovoltaic array is warmer than the surrounding white tile roof. This is expected since we choose the roof for its "coolness" and because the PV array is dark blue/black!

The temperature range is from 71°F (darkest colors) to 107°F (lightest colors).
