Abstract

Snow can affect both the energy performance of a PV system as well as the structural integrity of the PV system. A report by Ross (1995); “Snow and Ice Accumulation on Photovoltaic Arrays: An Assessment of the TN Conseil Passive Melting Technology,” assesses the ability of a PV system to melt the snow off the panels.
