Heat does affect solar cells/arrays.
Of course, arrays composed of different materials will respond differently to temperature, but a general range for panels at max efficiency is between 59F and 95F. For every degree increase in temperature above 77F degrees, a solar panel can lose10-25 percent of its efficiency.
Solar array output for an Aptera under cold and hot climatic conditions will be performed during Aptera testing
