Hi sciencesweetheart,

Welcome to Science Buddies! It sounds like you have a great project idea. The short answer to your question is: yes! You should be able to use solar panels in the winter.

I did a quick internet search for "using solar power in winter," and found all sorts of great advice online. Here is a sampling:

Try doing your own search to see what else you can find.

Please post again (in this same thread) if you have more questions!
