Midwest winter weather can be hard on the roads, your car, and your body. However, is winter weather hard on your solar panels? Does the cold, snow, and ice affect your solar panels and their electricity production?
The short answer is yes. The cold, snow, and ice do affect your solar panels. But these effects can be both good and bad.
It’s important to remember that your safety is of prime concern here at Tick Tock Energy. Do not attempt to clean solar panels on your own. There are too many factors that could lead to your injury, as we have written here.
The bottom line: Your safety is not worth the risk of losing a few days of electricity savings. You can always wait for the snow to melt or slip off the solar panels, or you can call a professional service to clean the snow off your solar panels.
