When it comes to solar systems, lightning poses a significant risk of damage. While we cannot prevent lightning from striking, we can take measures to control its path and protect our solar installations.

Sona Solar Zimbabwe understands the importance of safeguarding solar systems against the destructive power of lightning. By offering high-standard surge protection devices during solar installations, Sona Solar Zimbabwe ensures that clients' solar systems remain secure.

Understanding the Risk:

It's essential to recognize that most electrical and electronic damage in solar systems does not occur due to a direct lightning strike. Direct hits are rare. In many cases, lightning may strike a nearby object, such as a pole or tree, and the current can then travel through wiring or plumbing to nearby structures, including your solar system. 

Indirect lightning hits can induce high voltages onto the house and solar system wiring, potentially causing damage. Additionally, during a ground hit, lightning can spread out and travel through buried conductors like pipes and cables.

The Importance of Protection:

Protecting your solar system from lightning is crucial, and it's important to note that a direct strike is not required to cause damage. The wiring in a house or photovoltaic system provides a pathway for lightning voltage to pass through.

If your solar system is unprotected or inadequately grounded, thousands of volts can be fed back into your inverter and other equipment, leading to severe damage.

Key Measures for Lightning Protection:

1. Surge Protection Devices: Investing in high-quality surge protection devices is essential to safeguard your solar system. These devices are designed to divert the excess energy from lightning strikes, preventing it from entering your solar equipment.

2. Grounding: Proper grounding is fundamental in dissipating electrical energy and minimizing the risk of damage from lightning strikes. Ensure that your solar system is connected to a well-designed and well-maintained grounding system.

3. Lightning Rods: Installing lightning rods (also known as air terminals) on nearby structures or rooftops can help attract lightning strikes away from your solar system. Lightning rods provide a preferred path for lightning to follow, reducing the chances of it hitting your solar installation directly.

4. Professional Installation: Entrust the installation of your solar system to qualified professionals with expertise in lightning protection. They will ensure that all necessary precautions and safety measures are implemented, reducing the risk of damage.

Protecting your solar investment from lightning is of utmost importance. While we cannot prevent lightning strikes, we can take proactive steps to mitigate the risks. Sona Solar Zimbabwe emphasizes the implementation of comprehensive protective measures during solar installations, including surge protection devices, proper grounding, and professional installation practices. 

By prioritizing the safety and security of your solar system, you can enjoy the benefits of renewable energy without compromising on longevity and functionality.
