Due to their exposed installation sites and large collection areas, Photovoltaic (PV) installations are at a high risk of damage due to both direct and indirect lightning strikes. Since the PV system is connected directly to the building electrical system, the subsequent damage and disruption from these surges can cause serious damage to PV installations, expensive inverters and the building electrical system. Damage is not only limited to potentially high repair costs but also loss of service and important revenue for Solar Power plants.
