Nanosystems Research Yields Device That Can Extract Electricity from Falling Snow

No, seriously -- there is electrostatic energy in falling snow, so why not create an opposite charge in a device that can harness the reaction and generate a little power to augment solar during low-generating winter storms?   April 17, 2019   Researchers at the Nanosystems Institute at UCLA are looking ahead -- way ahead -- for ways to enhance the electricity-generating power of solar panels and one new hope is a device that creates electricity from falling snow....
