Solar panels are incredibly resistant to hail damage. While hail could, and has, damaged solar panels, it’s extremely rare for it to happen. We have over 64,000 solar panels deployed across all our installations today, and less than 100 have been damaged by hail. When it occurs, hail damage to your solar panels is covered under the claim you will already be filing for your damaged roof.
As always, check with your insurance provider before signing anything. While it’s rare that a home owner’s policy to go up when solar is added, every provider is different. The best time to contact your insurance company is when you have a bid and know how much the system costs.
