Could be useful for folks in the snow belt:
https://www.sciencealert.com/new-first-of-its-kind-device-creates-electricity-from-snowfall

Excerpts:

"Based upon the principles of the triboelectric effect, in which electrical charge is generated after two materials come into contact with one another, the researchers' new technology exploits the fact that snow particles carry a positive electrical charge.

Because of that, snowflakes give up electrons, provided they get a chance to interact with the right, negatively charged substance. ..."


"... While the amounts of electricity created in the testing experiments weren't huge, the researchers say it would be easy to build the snow TENG into solar panels in the future – helping them generate electricity during snowy weather, when their solar efficiency is otherwise diminished or negated."
