In Colorado, some of the biggest issues concerning the damage to your commercial business’ solar panels will likely be caused by hail, water, rocks, or fire.
The cells of your solar panels have a cover made of protective glass that can be damaged by hail storms. Smaller cells may be more expensive up front; however, it may be a more cost-effective option to invest in these specific solar panels if you live in an area that is prone to hail storms.
The seals around the solar panel will naturally begin to deteriorate overtime, which may allow water to seep through the cells of the solar panel. Periodic maintenance to reseal the connections and protective glass will ensure that the water will not cause short-circuiting and moisture build up.
Rocks and Foreign Material
Sometimes random debris may fall onto your solar panels, whether it be rocks or branches from a tree. These things can cause damage that may break the protective glass of the solar panel. Often, the best way to resolve this damage is to replace the solar panel’s protective cover.
Like most things, fire can damage solar panels quite extensively. In the event of a fire at your business, serious damage can come to your solar panels, and they made need to be replaced altogether. Sopris Solar can assist you in your repair and replacement needs.
