SeverE Weather Prep Tips

Take a look at these tried-and-true tips and figure out where you might need some additional prep work to secure you and your home against extreme weather this year.

Determine your geographic risk

Is your area more affected by storm surges and waves or inland flooding? High sustained winds or tornados? Evaluate where, why, and how you need to take action to protect yourself and your home from storm damage.

Make an plan

Even if you live in an area not normally affected by the acute damage of extreme weather, storms can be unpredictable and the damage fallout just as intense. Find a safe location and share your plan with family and friends.

Gather supplies and secure documents

Make sure you have plenty of supplies stocked for safety, nourishment, hygiene, medications, prescriptions, and don’t forget the pets! Remember to secure important documents and contact lists in case you can’t access digital versions. If you live in an area that might be evacuated, prepare a 3-day supply of “Go-Bag” items.

Help a neighbor

If you’re a Prep Pro, consider helping out a Newbie Neighbor! And don’t forget to check in on your elderly or disabled friends and family to see if they need extra assistance. We’re all in this together!

Get An Insurance Checkup

Contact your home and vehicle insurance agencies to ensure your policies are up to date. Be sure to find out if you need separate flood insurance. Print and secure your documents, so you can access them at any time.

Prepare your home

Insurance up-to-date? Check.
Windows and doors protected? Check.
Trees trimmed? Check.
Power source secured? …Hmm…

Are solar panels storm-resilient?

Built from a mix of aluminum and glass, solar panels are waterproof and sturdy! For example, our racking system will withstand 160mph winds and we have yet to see a panel damaged by hail. Worst case: your homeowners insurance usually covers any damage due to extreme weather.

What about leaks from heavy rainfall?

We use a detailed solar panel installation process that encompasses flashing, precise penetration and sealant. While we have yet to see a leak, we completely warranty against them.

How does energy power a home if there’s a blackout?

Unless you have battery backup, your solar system will not produce power during a blackout for the safety of any line workers. If you want to make sure you keep your lights on (and other crucial appliances) during extreme weather, learn more about whole-home and critical load battery backup systems.

Is solar power even affordable?

Definitely! We’ll give you SIX wallet-friendly reasons:

The 26% federal tax credit

The government recently extended the 26% tax credit, so take advantage before the extension ends! Both Illinois and Wisconsin have individual incentives, and commercial projects qualify for 100% depreciation in the first year. Learn more about credits.

Solar Incentives

Collect your federal tax credit AND additional solar incentives (SREC, Focus on Energy, Energy Credits) which can cover up to 65% of the total cost! Visit our Solar Panel Incentives page for more information.
