Protecting Solar Panels from Dallas Storms

9/23/2021 (Permalink)

Protecting Solar Panels When you know the forecasts for your area, you can act accordingly to minimize the chances of any solar panel damage.

Dallas weather can be pretty volatile during some periods, especially spring and autumn, and severe storms can occur and damage your property. If you have solar panels on your roof, a stronger storm or hail can damage them beyond repair. 

Fortunately, there are some things you can do to protect your solar panels from Dallas storms. Here are the most effective ways to keep your solar panels safe from even the harshest weather. 

Use Solar Panel Protective Covers

Solar panel protective covers can be very efficient in protecting your solar panels against hail and water damage. Installing solar panel protective covers often includes setting up metal frames around the panels and protective covers on top of these frames. However, protective covers do decrease productivity because they also block sunlight to a certain extent. 

Set Your Panels Correctly

Even if you have the best quality solar panels in the world, you’ll have a tough time protecting them if they aren’t set up correctly. Solar panels need a solid and robust metal frame to keep them steady even during strong winds or heavy rainfall. Equally as important, you need to set the panels in the right direction so that they’re not facing direct hits from the wind and any debris it carries.

Follow the Weather Report

Although this might seem like a fairly obvious tip, it’s something many homeowners fail to do. Staying up to date with the latest weather reports is crucial. When you know the forecasts for your area, you can act accordingly to minimize the chances of any solar panel damage.

This is especially important if you live in a location that experiences frequent and severe storms. If the forecast indicates a powerful storm that would put your solar panels in great danger, you can even promptly remove them or put a more robust cover on them.
