Surge damage due to a thunderstorm is one of the most frequent causes of damage in PV systems
Surges often lead to the destruction of system parts such as modules, inverters and monitoring systems. The financial consequences are dire. Replacement of a faulty inverter, new installation of the PV system, loss of revenue resulting from downtime… all mean that the break-even point and thus the profit zone is reached much later.
Decide in favour of a professional and comprehensive lightning protection system
- External lightning protection with an air-termination and down conductor system
- Internal lightning protection with surge protection for lightning equipotential bonding,
In doing so, you increase system availability and secure your revenue in the long term.
