Those solar farms sure do take up a lot of acreage. I've seen people roof their house with those solar panels with out checking on the local weather pattern history. First sizable hail storm they are history. This goes for the farms also, we have great sunlight out here but the destructive hail storms are becoming more frequent. I saw one over by Big Springs that had a fold over set up where during a storm alert heavy vinyl protection covers would fold out from underneath.
High winds are another problem and we sure get that also. If the wind can skin off a metal roof it wouldn't
have any problem doing that with those panels. If it couldn't lift them up it will just tear them to pieces.
