Lightning Protection For Solar Power Plants & Structures
Did you know that lightning causes 32 percent of all damage to solar panels? Like other electronic devices, solar power systems are prone to surges from lightning strikes. Protect your solar panels from unnecessary damage costs with a lightning protection system.
ENSURE SAFETY WITH SOLAR STRUCTURE LIGHTNING PROTECTION
Facility Managers use solar structures (specifically, photovoltaic mounting systems) to fix solar panels to surfaces like building facades, roofs, and the ground. The typical placement of these systems on the roof, along with the sensitive electronics that operate the systems, make them particularly vulnerable to damage from lightning. By implementing a lightning protection system to your solar units, you can ensure the safety of your systems in the event of a lightning storm.
WHY YOU NEED LIGHTNING PROTECTION FOR SOLAR STRUCTURES
If a bolt of lightning hits anywhere near your solar system, it could destroy wiring systems and other essential structural components. Simply put, lightning strikes could put your solar structures at risk. Many think this added layer of protection isn’t worth the money, but without the right protection products, lightning could cost you thousands more in damage and downtime than it would cost to implement a protection system from the start.
