January 21, 2015 Solar Panels were installed. Authorization to turn the panels on came in early February and they were actually turned on February 7th. By that time all but 6 panels were covered by snow varying in depth from 6 inches to 15 inches. Even so, some power was produced. When it finally got above freezing on February 22nd, a big snow slide occurred as the built up snow let go and slid off. Production immediately increased once all 30 panels were exposed. Album Posted March 15th 2015.
