Snow Guards for Solar Panels

If we know one thing for sure, it’s that snow is a quintessential part of the winter season here in Gloucester County, Camden County, Burlington County, Mercer County, and other areas of New Jersey. 

Naturally, this has a lot of homeowners concerned about their solar system’s performance. “Will my solar panels generate power when it’s snowing?” The truth is, it depends! Our solar PV experts design each custom residential and commercial solar system with the local climate in mind. Most solar panels have no trouble powering through a light dusting of snow, most of which melts quickly thanks to the sun’s reflection. Heavy snowfall, on the other hand, is not ideal… in fact, it’s dangerous! 

Unlike shingled roofs, the smooth and slick surface of a solar panel can cause compacted snow to slide off in massive chunks. Some might even call them mini-avalanches. This can be extremely dangerous for you, your family, your pets, your patio furniture, your mailman, and anyone and anything else who happens to be standing near your roof at this inopportune moment. 

That doesn’t mean you have to rethink your investment, though! Impact Solar brings you high-quality snow guards for solar panels to ease your worries.

How Do Snow Guards for Solar Panels Work?

Snow guards are as unique as the solar system they serve to protect. Although there are a variety of designs available to choose from, our solar system experts will provide you with their top installation recommendations after taking into consideration the slope of your roof, the model of your solar panels, and more. 

The basic idea behind all snow guards is to provide the snow with more traction and prevent it from sliding off in one fell swoop. Some snow guards allow the accumulated snow to fall in small increments while others keep the snow in place until it melts naturally. Most homeowners prefer the first option, as it doesn’t diminish their system’s capability of generating power during the winter. 

Snow guards for solar panels are incredibly affordable products that can give you peace of mind about your home’s and family’s safety this winter. If you reside anywhere in or around Gloucester County, Camden County, Burlington County, or Mercer County, we strongly recommend installing snow guards before the start of the winter season.
