Solar panels are tough and built to last. They’re covered with tempered glass, which is incredibly durable. Today’s solar panels can withstand the force of hurricane winds and large hail.
That being said, accidents can occur.
Your solar service agreement should cover, in detail, what will and won’t be covered if a panel breaks. This includes “Acts of God” or “Force Majeure.”
If one panel breaks, your system may still be generating some solar power. If you notice an issue, contact Sunnova immediately. Most importantly, do not try to fix a broken solar panel yourself as it will void your warranty.
