If you're that far north, you want the panels mounted steeper
than your roof probably is, anyway. Between that, the
fact that they're glass-smooth, and that they're generally
warmer than a roof would be, I doubt you'd have all THAT
much trouble with snow-built up. But if you don't like
that, whats wrong with a roof-mounted windmill?
Than you have to keep the panels clean so they can use what sunlight
falls upon them. Many homeowners don't like washing windows so I doubt
you will see many on there roofs washing the solar panels.
In A Popular Science I read recently there was A wind generator for
the home. It cost around 20K installed as I remember. It seems A more
viable alternative than solar panels in the generation of electricity
and at least you don't have to clean it!

Not A problem! My neighbors cats will take care of any dead bird clean
Now all I gotta do is sucker the good tax payers of Minnesota into
paying for the thing and I can hear the cash register bells ringing now!
