PID puts pressure on efficiency of solar parks

As solar power is increasingly popular and operators of solar parks in particular seek maximum returns, the concerns about PID are growing. PID (Potential Induced Degradation) is a fact of life in all photovoltaic solar systems. It leads to reduced efficiency of systems, in addition to the performance reduction through regular degradation processes, such as aging or impact from weather conditions and the like.
