Solar panels are a great way to use renewable energy, but one of their issues is that some weather may be detrimental to the panel. Many people think that solar panels are fragile glass pieces of hardware, but they are made with tempered glass and made of stronger materials. Rain itself, has no impact on solar panels and some panels can handle up to 140mph winds. Hail on the other hand can cause many issues.
- Due to the resilience of solar panels, you typically don’t need to worry about damage due to winds or hail.
- Most solar panels can withstand winds up to 140 miles per hour.
- Most solar panels are resistant to even the largest and hardest hail stones.
“Solar panel manufacturers make their systems as tough as possible since they’re constantly exposed to elements.”
