Clearances needed between the panel array

    • #16257 Reply


      What are the clearances needed between the panel array and the edge of the roof? Are these binding? Why are these clearances given?

      I have read distances of between 12-16inches and the reason being due to wind loads. What would happen if these rules were not followed?

      The clearance distances are laid down in the 2013 Guide to the Installation of a PV Panel System.

      A suitable minimum clearance zone from PV panels to roof edge is around 40-50cm.

      Hope this helps.
