Extreme Weather Risk Mitigation

In the case of a hurricane, high winds or hail, a single operator command will rapidly put the entire solar array into a safe stow angle. In the case of a snow shed, an authorized operator can pre schedule up to two snow shed operations in a single day, increasing production by reducing snow cover on solar panels.
