Jeff Pedro, Chief Financial Officer of CIR Electrical Construction Corporation, is proud to announce that the DEGERtrackers in their solar park continued to produce power during the week of record snow fall for November. In the aftermath of 60+ inches of snow, Buffalo and the surrounding suburbs attempted to clean up the mess left behind. Snow covered anything left outside during the storm, but CIR's Solar Panels remained untouched and ready to produce solar energy.

DEGERtrackers use state of the art technology. The panels are protected from high winds by an anemometer, which measures wind speed, and moves the panels to a safe position. A snow sensor identifies snow buildup on the solar panels, and tilts them 90° to clear the snow. These panels yield about 45% more energy than a fixed solar system of equal size.

Despite receiving over 6 feet of snow, these solar panels continued to produce power. In fact, current monthly data shows that the system will produce 97% of the expected KiloWatt Hours for November. Continuously producing power in spite of heavy snow and generally cloudy skies.

Trackers: (2) 6kW Deger 5000HD
Panels: (48) 250W Suntech Mono-Crystalline
Microinverters: (48) Enphase M215
Elevation Range of Motion: 10-90°
Azimuth Range of Motion: 300°
