Tornado hits solar powered home

A reported tornado touched down in Monroe Monday creating widespread damage.  One of the homes struck was a customer of ours with a 6.76 kw SolarWorld solar power system that we sold them last year.  Even though 100 year old oaks were uprooted in their yard and the roof damaged, the SolarWorld panels, along with the mounting system by SnapNrack held tight and was not damaged.  We will remove and reinstall the system so the insurance company can provide a new roof.  When photos are available from the customer we will upload them.
