RBI Solar assesses wind loads on solar panels

RBI Solar assesses wind loads on solar panels in collaboration with WindSim AS

Wind pressures on PV modules are one of the most dynamic and unpredictable threats to solar projects. To mitigate risk and reduce unnecessary structure costs, RBI Solar, Inc. analyzes each and every project site and engineers for the appropriate risks to the structure. WindSim’s expertise in wind modelling and site analysis capabilities give RBI a new and unique vision into the wind events that a site may experience. This allows RBI to further predict wind events on a project and more efficiently engineer site specific solar structures while adhering to local building codes. RBI Solar is proud to have partnered with an industry leading simulation software developer in the wind energy market.
