How to prevent damage from severe weather events to solar projects in the age of emergencies

November 3, 2022 | 1 pm EST

After Fiona Hurricane swept through this past September, the Summerside Sunbank Solar Project in Prince Edward Island, which used Polar-designed racking and piles, came through with only minimal damage. In contrast, other solar projects were left in a twisted mess, requiring costly remedial work. Why did one solar project survive relatively intact and other didn’t?

In this webinar, we will share the design and engineering best practices that ensure durability under hurricane-force winds. We will use the example of Polar Racking’s fixed-tilt ground-mount racking at the Summerside Sunbank solar project as compared to other projects

This webinar has passed. We will be posting the recording of the live event shortly. In the meantime, take a moment to view our previous webinars. Watch Polar Racking webinars »

In this webinar, you’ll learn:

  • Climate Resiliency and Hurricane Fiona’s Damage to Solar
  • Review of design considerations for Summerside Sunbank Solar Project
  • Design and Engineering Best Practices in the Age of Emergencies
  • Q&A
