Snow Stops Solar Power Dead

Another problem with the snow is the solar power system can't produce any power if the panels are covered with snow. Yesterday morning the panels had about 4 inches of snow on them. I figured I would try to scrape off the snow but the last place to be in the snow is on the roof. So I stood up a ladder and used a broom with an extension to reach as far as I could which was only up to about half the lower panels. After that we produced a tiny bit of power. Then this morning the panels are covered with about an inch of icy snow. I hope the sun will melt this soon. Below are perfect bird tracks from the front patio.
