Will inclement weather damage my system?
Of course, there is no way to guarantee weather will not damage a solar array but our systems are built to last. All systems are designed and installed to exceed local building standards. In the rare case of damage due to mother nature your home owners insurance policy will cover any damages.
Will my Solar system work on overcast/rainy days?
Yes, but the output will be less than on clear, sunny days. Since most of our systems are tie directly to the grid you will not notice any difference in the amount of energy you have to be able to consume. Simply you will pull electricity from the grid at night or overcast/rainy on rainy days and on clear, sunny days you will over produce to and your meter will spin backwards.
