World4Solar’s HelioWing Hurricane Edition Solar Power System Can Sustain Category 5 Winds 

The Hurricane edition offers double the strength to withstand wind speeds of up to 175 mph without snow.

World4Solar has announced its new HelioWing Hurricane Edition Solar Power System for businesses and residential homes that can sustain Category 5 winds.

World4Solar HelioWing Hurricane Edition Solar Power System

The HelioWing Hurricane edition offers double the strength to withstand wind speeds of up to 175 mph without snow. The Hurricane edition increases the steel (powder coated, American steel) structure and fasteners strength from 50 ksi to 100 ksi to accommodate Category 5 hurricane winds. Businesses and homeowners in coastal areas can be sure their structure will remain in place, safe and secure in tropical storms and hurricanes, and they will not lose power — no storm grid outages.

The solar canopy can be concealed as a pool pergola, garden cover, or carport. Customers can add an inverter, EV charger, and batteries up to 25 kWh (Kilowatt hour) to their system. An optional LED lighting system with a control box can be built in to illuminate your business, your property, or parking area. Power the house, illuminate the garden/pool area, or charge the car — the HelioWing does it all.
