Designing for Resilience: PV Systems in Hurricane-Prone and Other High-Wind Regions

Wednesday, September 26
9:30 AM - 10:00 AM
Location: Industry Trends: Booth 189

What is resilience? How is resilience different from reliability or durability? Within the last several months, FEMA and others have published reports of findings and recommendations from their visual surveys of PV systems in U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico after 2017’s Hurricanes Irma and Maria. Joe will discuss similarities and differences in these recommendations, and how we can use lessons learned from Irma and Maria to improve the structural resilience of PV systems in high-wind regions.
