When severe weather hits, it can potentially cause damage to solar PV systems. All solar systems are designed and engineered to withstand high wind events. Over the lifetime of a system, equipment can loosen or wear out. Performing annual or routine maintenance checks can help ensure all racking components are torqued to specification. Having a strong O&M provider can help minimize the potential for damage while maximizing your system’s lifespan. In addition, an intelligent system owner will inspect their system before or after storms to ensure equipment has not shifted.
