Can hail damage solar panels?



  1. 0 Votes

    Hail can damage solar panels, but the likelihood is rare.  Solar panels are made with a tempered or toughened glass surface to make the panels durable.  The solar array alignment also gives the panel added durability.  In general, solar panels can withstand direct vertical impact of a 1″ diameter hailstone.  If hail damage does occur, homeowner’s insurance will most likely cover the damage, but the policy should be checked first.
