Buffalo Solar FAQs
Let’s address some of the most common questions we hear at Solar by CIR.
Are Solar Panels Worth It in NY?
Yes! Solar Panels are an incredible investment. They raise the value of your home, save money on your utility bills, which can return great dividends on your investment. For more information on ROI, check out this page.
Do Solar Panels Work in Snowy or Cloudy Conditions?
Snowy and cloudy weather can reduce the amount of energy produced by your solar panels, but they can still work efficiently in these conditions. In snowy climates, most solar panels are installed at an angle so that the snow will slide off the panel once it accumulates, and rain can help clear debris from your panels, actually helping them to be more efficient. In fact, Germany, a country that gets far less sun than Western New York, has one of the most successful solar initiatives in the world.
