Whilst solar panels do not specifically attract lighting, it must be borne in mind that lightning is a powerful force of nature that can strike the highest point in an area exposed to thunderstorm, regardless of whether there are solar panels or not.

If a solar panels system is not installed properly, currents induced by lighting strikes can potentially damage the solar PV system.

Solar panels systems installed by Virtue Solaris incorporate latest protection technology, including proper protective earthing (PE), overcurrent protection, current leakage protection, arc fault protection and surge protection that can minimize possibility of of damage in an event of a thunderstorm. That said, it is always a good idea to have insurance coverage for a solar PV system.
