Snow on Solar Panels

I took this image two days ago. By now the snow is mostly all melted away. Two things catch my eye here. One: the panels, being black and smooth, shed the snow pretty easily. Two: the rest of the roof was still covered in snow, indicating good insulation.

This is a screenshot of our production a similar (not the same) day:

I’m so glad we went with individual inverters. If we had gone with one central one, then not only shade from trees but also snow on a few panels would have stopped harvesting.
