Protect your solar panels from theft

Solar Panels are still fairly new to this country but as the number of installations grow  inevitably so will the threat of theft. Whilst we haven’t heard of any solar panels in Milton keynes or bedford being stolen, with around £10000 of investment on an unguarded roof sadly it won’t be long. Other countries with more established PV markets have seen the theft of panels become a reality which is further confirmation that we should be considering protection of our investments. It is now possible to install a wireless pressure switch to a number of solar panels which if removed will send a signal to a central unit inside the property, Once the signal is recieved the unit will wirelessly dial out to the owner (or any other number) to raise the alarm. This system can be retrofitted to any solar panel installation and unfortunately it may not be long before there is stong demand for this service.
