Yes, while solar panels produce at the highest level when the sun is out and shining, cloudy days don’t mean panels will stop producing. It just means it will produce at a slightly lower rate; however, customers feedback has shown that you might not even notice a reduction in the efficiency as the panels will still be able to convert sunlight into electricity and live up to your home needs during that time. As long as the solar panels can capture some of that sunlight, despite the clouds, you are good to go with nothing to worry about!
With solar panels, you can provide electricity for your home and sometimes more than what is needed. When this happens, you have two options; you can store the excess energy in solar batteries or you can sell that excess electricity to the utility company to distribute elsewhere along the power grid. That process of selling your excess energy generated back to the utility company in your state is known as net metering. You need to note that net metering policies differ from one state to another.
