Here in Western New York, we are all very fortunate to experience all four seasons—including a long cold winter. So what happens to solar panels when it snows? The good news is that sunny days are not needed year-round for solar panels to produce enough electricity for your household or business. Here’s how it works.

The shading from surrounding buildings and trees is one of the biggest factors in determining whether solar panels are suitable and beneficial for your house. Obviously, the removal or trimming of the source of shading would be the most straightforward solution. But that’s not always possible. But don’t let that stop you from considering solar energy for your home or business—we have solutions!

One of the biggest concerns most homeowners have while considering solar panels is the integrity of their roof—before and after the installation. So let's talk about what we do to protect your roof during the weeks before installation.

With all of the different types of roofs out there, the first step to waterproofing a solar panel installation is as easy as following all manufacturer instructions and guidelines. But no matter what the roof, two things stay consistent—metal flashings beneath the shingles with silicone acting as an insurance factor. But at Buffalo Solar Solutions, that’s not enough for the peace of mind of our customers. Our established installation method exceeds manufacturers’ expectations for sealing off the roof puncture. Here’s how we do it.
