A surge that occurs from lightning (even when striking a long distance from the system) can damage your equipment. Therefore, surge protectors are a necessity for any solar energy system, as they are sensitive to any surges from lightning. By absorbing the electrical charges, they will protect your electronic equipment.
It is best to take proper precautions, as your solar energy system is a valuable investment! We automatically install at least two surge protectors with all solar energy systems, even small ones. If lightning strikes and the surge protector did its job, it will have to be replaced. The surge protector model that you will need depends on the voltage of your system.
Excellent characteristics of our surge protectors:
- We exclusively use the most reliable brand on the market, MidNite Solar.
- Specific models available for either on-grid or off-grid systems.
- Besides our warranty on your entire installation, the manufacturer offers a warranty of 5 years on the surge protectors (as long as lightning did not strike the protector).
