Does Snow Affect Solar Panels?

While snow will decrease production while it is on your panels, it should not damage your system when designed and installed properly. Given the angle of the panels and their tendency to produce some heat, the snow will fall off your panels faster than it would fall off your roof, quickly returning your system to its full potential. In fact, snow on the ground can actually increase the output of your panels due to reflected sunlight.
