Solar Under Storm Part II: Designing Hurricane-Resilient PV Systems

Credit to Author: Rocky Mountain Institute| Date: Tue, 25 Feb 2020 04:42:43 +0000

The last three years have seen major hurricanes wreak havoc on island nations. Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Maria, and Dorian caused catastrophic damage to homes, infrastructure, and economies throughout the Caribbean basin. At the same time, the use of solar photovoltaic (PV) power is increasing on Caribbean islands—helping reduce costs and improve electric grids. And while some solar installations were destroyed by the hurricane force winds, many remained intact. In 2017, Rocky Mountain Institute sent expert structural engineering teams to the Caribbean region to investigate survivals and failures among ground-mounted PV systems
