This work investigates the effect of the dust deposition and temperature on the photovoltaic module working under varying environmental conditions. The impact of the module temperature caused by the dust deposition, as well as direct impact caused by the dust particle absorption, scattering and reflectance on module performance, has been analysed. Presented results showed that dust deposition even in desert free country Poland influences the module temperature and power output significant. The estimated join effect of dust deposition and temperature increase, on power loss after three-four days of natural dust exposure in the city environment, was about 0.32 and 0.37 point of percentage for the selected sunny and cloudy days while evaluated PV system efficiency was in the range 13.37-14.14%.
