Solar panel cleaning and wind.

Guest OoO

Recommended Posts

Okay like an idiot I cleaned some solar panel last weekend and it was windy. Lost control of the extreme pole (40ft extended) and the roof tiles saved the extreme. Cleaned one panel and gave up.


How do you plan for wind. I am thinking of a mini flag now so I see gusts etc.


I mean if there is a slight breeze. Is it just a flat out no. Or what.


Any advice tips would be great. Thanks.

there is a cut off with the wind speed but cant remember what it is now! lol


the higher you go the stronger the wind!

This is what i am saying outside my house. No wind. Yet if I look at trees. They are slightly leaning in the wind.


Find me that speed lol :P

Wind speed varies depending at what height you are so if you buy a handheld device then would not be much good at taking a reading at height unless you are up there as well. :Image16:


Well according to Impact 43 course its 25mph.



and you can buy devices of amazon really cheap!
