Solar panels might charge the battery bank some during cloudy weather if it gets a little sun.

But solar panels work their best when you have a lot of sun shining.

The solar panels provide electricity to you when the sun is shining and the excess electricity that you don't use gets stored in batteries where you can access the electricity when it's cloudy.
