To finally destroy the myth of solar panels being very fragile, look at this image on the left. Solar panels are actually strong enough that you could stand on them. I wouldn’t recommend this, though, because you could slip, fall, and hurt yourself easily. Don’t try this at home!
Don’t solar panels wear out in less than a decade? FALSE. Solar modules have performance warranties of twenty or twenty-five years, and guarantee 80% of its original power by the end of that time. If that isn’t crazy enough (for that is more years than I have lived, and maybe more than some of my readers), the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (also known as NREL) has panels that have been working for over forty years!
So solar panels are stronger than we thought, even ones made many years ago…still working today.
