PV Plants and Flooding – What Should You Do?

PV and flooding

Even though the water is receding in many places, the floods in Germany and Eastern Europe still pose a threat. Many PV plants are also affected in the areas experiencing flooding. However, plant operators and rescue workers often don’t know what to do when an inverter is located in a flooded basement.

That’s why we talked to Adrian Häring. Adrian is an SMA expert on the installation and safety of PV plants. As a firefighter he has often responded to flooding events.
