Solar Panels During Florida’s Hurricane Season

Posted on August 10, 2023 in by Brigitte

Florida’s hurricane season… welcome to your first hurricane season with solar panels! Or you may be thinking about getting solar panels and want to know what to expect during hurricane season. 

Florida’s weather during the summer months can be highly unpredictable. However, the efficiency of your energy source and the quality of your solar panels should not be. That’s why we put our solar panels to the test. 

In this blog, Bison Roofing and Solar would like to explain what happens to our top of the line solar panels during the weather of Florida’s hurricane season. 

How Do Solar Panels Hold Up During Florida’s Hurricane Season? 

When it comes to Florida’s unpredictable weather, you want to ensure that the solar panels on your roof are ready for anything. That is why at Bison Roofing and Solar, we are proud to present each and every one of our clients with nothing but the best when it comes to Materials, Craftsmanship, and Warranties


  • Materials


The solar panels Bison installs are widely known for their dependability and durability. 

Solar panels are built to withstand up to 170 miles per hour. In Florida, this is a requirement by many municipalities. 

For reference, a category five hurricane produces 170 mile per hour winds. In the U.S., we have only seen three hurricanes of that category make landfall. So your chances of actually having to worry about your solar panels are slim to none.

Now you know that your solar panels will still be attached to your roof during a storm. So, let’s talk about their dependability when it comes to producing energy. 

Your solar panels will still power your home unless you lose electricity completely. Otherwise, your home will be business as usual, even in the cloudy, rainy weather. 

Best in class materials combined with expert craftsmanship and installation make all the difference. 


  • Craftsmanship


Bison Roofing and Solar is based in South Florida, so we understand Florida weather. 

When comparing solar panel companies, you want to ensure that your potential installers know the climate and weather conditions your roof could be up against. Our expert installers are familiar with the unpredictable weather that Florida can experience.  

That’s why when our experts install your roof, you will have peace of mind knowing that they carry all necessary Florida licensing: the Solar Contracting License and the Roofing Contracting License. 

And if that’s not enough, added protection can be found in our extended warranties.


  • Warranties


At Bison Roofing and Solar, our materials carry a 25 year warranty. 

We are not able to speak on behalf of our competitors, but the average warranty is commonly only 12 years. We opt for an extended warranty for our customers because we like to go above and beyond in every way possible. 

Solar panels are an investment that saves money and the environment. Long lasting products mean more money for you and less waste for the planet.

Our materials are built to last, even in the harshest weather conditions.
