Sharp solar panels work effectively across Canada from British Columbia to the Maritimes.  Colour and framing both make a difference. During a wet snow storm the snow sticks to everything from telephone poles to solar panels.  Solar panels positioned at the correct angle for our northern latitudes, of the appropriately dark material without white divisions between cells encourage the snow to slide off and as the storm abates and weather turns colder the combination of angle, self generated heat by solar and electrical resistance (within still shaded cells) you have a good chance to see the snow clearing off your panels without manual clearing.

SHARP SILICON PHOTOVOLTAIC MODULES FOR MAXIMUM POWER

Sharp’s photovoltaic modules offer industry-leading performance, durability, and reliability for a variety of electrical power requirements.  Using breakthrough technology perfected by Sharp’s nearly 45 years of research and development, these modules use a textured cell surface to reduce reflection of sunlight, and BSF (Black Surface Field) structure to improve conversion efficiency. An anti-reflective coating provides a uniform blue color and increases the absorption of light in all weather conditions. Common applications include RVs, homes, camps and cottages, solar power stations, pumps, beacons, and lighting equipment.  Designed to withstand rigorous operating conditions, Sharp’s modules multi-crystalline solar panels are a perfect combination of advanced technology and superior reliability.
