    Jeff, being in Idaho, what happens when snow accumulates over the top of your solar panels?

    I understand that. I live at about 3500 feet, just because I live up north doesn't mean I'm at 10000 feet. It's pretty much a desert here, lave beds, sage brush. Yes it snows, we have some really good storms here from time to time, but they are rare. The wind generally keeps my roof clean, but I do get drifts in a few spots. The panels on the shop will probably never see drifting or the panels on the upper level. I have 4 surfaces with panels
