Winter months are actually good for solar energy production, as long as your panels aren’t covered by snow. Like most electronics, solar panels function more efficiently in cold conditions than in hot. This means that your panels will produce more power for each precious hour of sunshine during the short days of winter. Our designs take into account the average snowfall in the area and assume they will not be working while the snow is on them. The good thing is the panels are made of a smooth glass covering on an angled roof. This means the snow will fall off and often produce anyways which means more power production for you.
