When speaking with customers the topic comes up due to our unpredictable weather we receive here in Saskatchewan. "How do solar panels hold up to Hail"?
A solar module or panel that is installed properly should be more durable than roofing materials. In fact, you may need to have us remove (and later re-install) your solar system so roofers can re-shingle-metal sheet a roof that was hail damaged.
Quality Solar panels that are CSA and ELC rated will have independent impact laboratory test performed. They have a tempered glass covering that will hold up to the harshest tests and weather conditions we receive in Saskatchewan.
Watch below as a solar panel is hit with a "hard ball" size of hail at 120 km/hr.
