With hail season in full swing here in Western Canada, you are probably wondering if a solar PV system will be able to survive a hailstorm. The simple answer is “YES”. A solar module or panel that is installed properly and tilted at the right angle should never break from hail. In fact, we sometimes need to remove (and later re-install) an intact solar system so roofers can re-shingle a roof that was destroyed by hail. In this video, SkyFire Solar Specialist, Bryce Hayes, explains how solar modules are built to handle hail impact and how the design of a solar PV installation is a critical factor in preventing hail damage.
