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, freak accidents 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.”
Most importantly, do not try to fix a broken solar panel yourself. Contact Sunnova immediately upon discovering a break.
And rest assured if one panel breaks, your system is probably still generating some solar power.
