Although sitting within a tropical solar-rich goldmine, the Philippines is also undeniably located in the Pacific typhoon belt where roughly 20 typhoons pass each year. This information has continuously brought concerns if solar can withstand storms and strong winds. How does a solar system behave during bad weather?
This has been a common hesitation regarding solar energy systems in our country. Is it even worth it? After all, solar does not come cheap and is considered a big and long-term investment by most people.
Can a Solaric system survive a typhoon?
The answer is yes – solar power systems can survive typhoons. One thing about Solaric installations is that the solar power system mounting solutions are built tough to withstand ~250kph of winds. Our highly experienced engineers and installers always make sure that your roof can accommodate our racking systems and solar panels. Solar panels are waterproof and with proper installation, they should be able to resist any uplift or detachment from your roof. Solaric systems are highly durable and securely installed using tier 1 equipment and materials only.
Contrary to the popular opinion that solar does not work during rainy and cloudy days, your solar energy system continues to harvest energy through the amount of light reflected in solar panels, although lesser compared to a usual sunny day. Rainfall also acts as a natural ‘carwash’ for your solar panels as it helps remove accumulated dust and dirt which may cause energy losses over time.
Investing in solar is no doubt the smartest choice if you want to save on your monthly electric bills. With a 25-year output guarantee, there is already a sure return on investment in 4 to 5 years – and the rest is payback. A typical Solaric home can help you save between a hundred thousand to millions of pesos over its lifespan. The bottom line here is that typhoons, strong winds, and rainy days should not hinder your choice to go solar. Solaric will always be ready to Turn on the Sun for you!
