Download spreadsheet to assess wind load on solar panels
With wind load on solar Panels Analysis Spreadsheet, it becomes easier for installing Solar Panels on any roof. By applying this spreadsheet, one can verify whether it is reasonable to compute necessary ballast weight / fixings forces / roof loads from wind operating on Solar Panels (also known as solar modules, photovoltaic modules, photovoltaic panels or PV modules). The design adheres to BRE Digest 489.
This spreadsheet is user-friendly. The spreadsheet allows several automatic calculations and with the pop-up UK & Ireland map, it is possible to define the wind pressures on projected solar panels with a single click of the mouse. So, a normal house owner gets the ability to utilize this spreadsheet for making calculation of required ballast weight.
