The Hail Alert Response system leverages weather prediction algorithms to preemptively stow solar trackers approximately 30 minutes before a predicted hail event. This approach can safeguard solar projects against potential damage, ensuring longevity and durability of the array.

Hail Alert Response is available across the United States and can integrate with any existing DuraTrack or OmniTrack trackers from Array. All communications between the SmarTrack Data Platform and the on-site SmarTrack Controller are encrypted. Along with a subscription to the service, a SmarTrack Controller is essential for the effective application of the Hail Alert Response features.

“Array is constantly seeking innovative ways to add value and long-term cost savings for our customers, by enhancing the resilience and performance of solar energy systems,” said Kevin G. Hostetler, CEO at Array. “With our patented Hail Alert Response, we’re offering our clients an exceptional layer of protection against the unpredictability of weather, while ensuring that solar projects remain productive and secure via encryption.”
