In this work, the influence of colors of filters upon the photovoltaic panels rising temperature and electrical performance was studied under BaghdadMeteorological Condition. Basing on the energy analysis of a photovoltaic solar system and by using the photonic theory, the available energy on the PV plane system has been evaluated. Seven colored filters each with (85W) PV modules were used in this case study, to reveal the impact of colored filters upon the electrical productivity of PV panel with the variation in the temperature caused by these filters. There is the main issue of this work is to show how the performance of PV module by imposing colored filter and hence how and to how much improve it by reducing the cell temperature in hot climate. Outcomes showed that the PV technology is affected by the color filters. In other words, red filter gives light have least photons energy, and violet filter gives light have the most photons energy and green is between the two. So, red colors filter gives highest PV panel temperature comparative with others filters, while violet color filter was the lowest. PV module with the lowest temperature colored filter gives the best electrical performance than others.
