Module wind load resistance: Standards vs. reality

With extreme weather events becoming all too common, and a growing list of PV projects that have been damaged or destroyed by strong winds, ensuring that mounting structures are able to withstand the pressures they’ll face in the field is a vital concern for all involved. In this pv magazine Webinar, we’ll examine where current testing standards may fall short, and what this means for suppliers of trackers and mounting structures. And we’ll also be treated to a closer look at Gamechange Solar’s testing program, which takes into account the different pressure gradients across a module’s surface in a high wind environment; and ensures ample wind resistance.

Reducing solar project risk for extreme weather

We will discuss how rigorously tested modules and correctly engineered system designs create a major opportunity for U.S. utility-scale developers to lower project risk and LCOE.
