What About High Wind?

Utah’s high winds require that racking and all fasteners be rated for at least 90mph in most areas, and 100mph requirements in known high wind areas. We also ensure that all electrical and grounding connections be able to withstand high winds over many years (as well as our occasionally very heavy snow loads).

A more common wind hazard is wiring becoming loose and rubbing against rough roofing materials, eventually through the insulation. An annual inspection of the system will usually catch problems such as these before the repair becomes expensive.
