For the solar panels safety precautions of the approaching cyclone, following things need to be taken into consideration:-

Generally, capsule size nut bolts loose in solar panel installation. We recommend to use SS Bolt and 2 Vasars when solar installers work on the installation site. The common reason of broken due to high wind is loose mounting hole nut and bolts. 

No. 2: Civil Work

Generally, home owners are installing solar panels according to his rooftop space. They are using unused area of rooftop, such as monty, backyard area, high rise, wall mounted, etc. In this case, we recommend to do proper civil work of panel stand legs: 


If you are installing solar panels on surface roof, we recommend to make 300 * 300 * 300 (L * W * H) and it's weight will be approx. 70 kg. whereas when you are installing solar panels on high rise, then we recommend to make 400 * 400 * 400 (L * W * H) and it's weight will be approx. 90 kg. In whole process, you should use 10 mm fastener in home lenter.

No. 3: Uninstall Solar Panel

Less than 1kW Solar Panels are installing maximum in India for single and double battery charging, but they have major focus on buying solar panels and charge controller. People are locally arrange panel stand or not using any panel stand. They use solar panels for battery charging on any surface area / hut roof or stand through the wall. We recommend these type of home owners to un install solar panels in cyclone time and when situation will be normal, just use it.
