North Wind Preparations
Originally uploaded by mikeysklar
It's another windy day in TorC. Gusts are expected up to 60 mph. I went out this morning and took down our shade cloth over our porch and confirmed that the solar panels were tightened down. The part of the
forecast that concerns me the most is the 30 mph northwest winds anticipated for this evening. That is a big deal because those winds get right behind the solar panels. Mental Note: When you setup a PV
solar system do not use top of pole mounts if at all possible. Ground bases systems are inexpensive, easy to maintain and will not fall on your home.
